LIVE: Meshuggah vs Devin Townsend, London UK

The latest issue of Terrorizer (available in stores now) features my photos of one of the most exciting shows this year – Meshuggah vs Devin Townsend Project. I posted the published page last week, but also wanted to share with you some others that I took that night, it was a killer show and the lighting was great too! It was a first for me to see Meshuggah live. Certainly not a disappointment – energetic, dark, and precise are the words that spring to mind. Their set was flawless. Totally happy they played ‘Demiurge‘ a it’s one of my faves. Devin loved the two guys dressed in the Pikachu and Stitch onesies, so their sweltering at the front barrier all through Meshuggah’s set paid off! The sound and visuals during The Devin Townsend Project were immense. Not to mention the set closer – ‘Grace’ – that had a mass of red and white choir shirts fill the stage and join in. Was great to experience that show. One of my favourites this year so far. Mx

Flames, Swords and Candy Pink!

Sounds like a trip to the circus maybe? Another time ;) I’ve had a couple of portrait photo shoots and work published. Live photography can become a bit monotonous at times. You have to make the dullest visuals look interesting and tell a story – I’m not afraid to admit that sometimes it’s difficult. That’s until you are booked to shoot a band that goes to town with their performance. ‘Fire pictures’ were ones that I ticked off my mental “wish list” last time I shot German Industrial Metallers – Rammstein. Needless to say, I was more than excited to be shooting them again at the O2 Arena! Deathstars supported them on the ‘Made in Germany Tour’ and I had a shoot and some backstage pics with them (they will appear at a later date). I shot this bit of footage on my iPhone at the start of the show. If you haven’t seen Rammstein live, it gives you just a tiny taster of the work they put into the show. You can check out their Official music videos to see what they get up to on stage. It’s a feast for the eyes! That walkway lowered down and the […]
