Live: Rival Sons in London

I had heard some great things about Rival Sons; that they have been named the next Led Zeppelin. That’s some quite big shoes to fill. Monday night, they played the Electric Ballroom in Camden. I’ve photographed many bands at this venue in my career so far – from Shinedown to Fear Factory, but this was the first Rock ‘n’ Roll show. A different vibe, and (I think) Sold Out crowd that erupted with applause and cheering as they came on stage and went straight into ‘Keep on Swinging’. My first impression. WOW. My second, “Oh yeah, I’m here to take pictures!” Singer ‎Jay Buchanan‎ looked like a cross between Steven Tyler, Rod Stewart and Mick Jagger – the guy has serious style. His stage presence, enigmatic and his fancy footwork matching his vocal ability. I was definitely loving his shoes! I looked around at such a wide range of ages in the audience getting into the music – the kids as if they were literally witnessing rock ‘n’ roll for the first time and lapping it up. Rival Sons have the complete package, and there’s no ignoring them. I had also heard Jimmy Page was in attendance…wonder what he thought. […]

Makeover + Shoot Day #2

YES! We are back for another fun day which I’m so pleased about. The last Makeover + Shoot Day was a lot of fun, and I loved to see the ladies so happy with their hair, makeup and pictures. If you missed it, you can read all about it here. The next Day is November 18th at the same location – Murder Mile Studio. Here’s the poster for it If you’re after a simple portrait shoot with a plain background, or a completely different look entirely with one of the many great studio settings, you can’t miss this opportunity. It would make a great gift for a loved one, friend or family member, or even a treat day for yourself! Guys, I include you in that too, as it could be a treat for you when you get the pictures ;) The £140 fee includes: Pre-shoot consultation with me to make sure you get the shoot, style and look that you’re after. Studio time in the setting of your choice, glass of red or white wine (or non-alcoholic drink if you prefer) as you arrive at the studio, your hair styled by Ceri and makeup applied by Amber, half hour […]

Vienna Calling

A new alternative clothing store will be opening in Vienna on Halloween, and I had the honour of photographing the fashion campaign for the store decor, advertising and website. I loved being in the studio for the 2 days, and had 5 of the best London alternative models to work with. I worked with Ceri on hair for the whole shoot and Stacey doing makeup on the 1st day (Stacey worked with me on the first ever Dolls ‘n’ Divas Playing Cards back in 2009). The clients now have the many, many contact sheets and I should be hearing from them very soon with all their final choices. So difficult! I couldn’t leave you hanging on without any teasers. So, I don’t do this very often – if at all, here’s a little teaser of the raw unedited images from a few of the contact sheets. Can you see what a kick-ass day that we had?! The store, I’ve been told, will be the first large alternative store in Vienna and is more than 4000 square feet. It will feature clothing, shoes, a tattoo parlour, jewellery, makeup, piercing studio and loads more. The owners like to dream big and they […]
