Nya – Driving the Nails In

Nya recently booked me for a promo shoot surrounding their forthcoming EP ‘Driving the Nails In’, which will be released November 5th. The inspiration surrounding this shoot was their EP artwork This was designed by my old friend Steve at CWD Media. Every so often I get a blast from the past – it always happens in this industry :) Steve and I met when I was first shooting shows at local bars and venues and he fronted a band called Vert. I instantly clicked with Nesh, Dan, Woody and Joe. The shoot was super fun, and there was also Sammm Agnew working on their hair and makeup. She’s a stellar lady with amazing skills. To compliment the album artwork the guys had brought along roses and what looked like coffin nails (?!) haha. I found an old skull lying around the photo studio and we all knew what we wanted to do. Sammm put this amazing piece together while I was shooting the full band images in the first section. This creation featured in singer Anezka’s pictures and also the second half of the band shots Worked really well didn’t it? A couple of days ago Nya filmed their music […]

Promo Teaser – DogState

I spent my Friday night this week at my favourite photo studio with rock band DogState. The guys wanted some promos to go alongside their new EP release ‘War Baby’. Here’s a little teaser of one of the other shoot settings! The guys currently have the contact sheets to decide their final images, so after then I will share some of them with you all. We all worked really hard on the shoot but also had a great laugh too. I’m off to York tomorrow morning early for a little break but will share some pictures as I’ve been told that there’s some great architecture there. Plus I want to go to the Viking Museum too! Mx

GODSIZED ‘WALKING AWAY’ VIDEO SHOOT

Holed up in an old meat market in Croydon, South London for a day, I went along to do photo stills and a promo shoot with Godsized. I walk into 2 hours gone of filming, smoke, effects lighting and the track ‘Walking Away’ blaring – everyone is really upbeat about the day which was good news as everything was going well then. Sitting with my cup of tea and a bacon buttie I watch and grab an essence of the idea before I picked up my camera and started work. 5 hours later, it was a wrap. Everyone cold, tired, fed up with hearing ‘Walking Away’ for the millionth time and time for the promo shoot! They took 5 to rest up and we started shooting. Clearly fed up with performing, they needed to have a bit of a laugh before getting down to the serious pictures. Oh and there’s more than that. In fact I have a whole load of pictures of Godsized from the small beginnings and line up changes which I will eventually put online. The guys really do like to have a laugh AND are great at what they do too. A teaser from the promo […]
