Sonisphere Festival 2014

Sonisphere rocked! Too many stories to share, and a load of bands photographed! Some of them I can’t post here as they will be printed in Terrorizer Magazine first. But in the meantime, here is the Festival in pictures through my eyes.   Before Metallica took the stage, the fans at the barrier decided to chant my name. I made a video of it! (Though it does actually sound like ‘Murray’ rather than ‘Marie’) An absolute blast! Can’t wait to share with you my live pics, of Metallica in particular! Mx

Arch Enemy – Terrorizer World Exclusive!

As I write this (21/04/2014), I’m sitting in a cab on my way back from the airport having done a round trip from South London to Germany in 21 hours. Exhilarated! Exhausted! My working day had started at 1am on Bank Holiday Monday, probably when most of you (in the UK) were just thinking about heading to bed. The sunrise was beautiful. My flight left Luton at 7am. I arrived in Dortmund, Germany and greeted by Jens from Century Media (CM), We drove around in an attempt to find some breakfast. In Germany, they treat a Bank Holiday like a holiday, and therefore nothing was open – except for the bakers in the train station and a couple of shops. I had never been to Dortmund, so Jens told me about the City as we drove to CM HQ, I was like a sponge taking everything in. There are many signposts in Germany! Dortmund is a lot like Coventry here in the UK, quite industrial in some parts. It also has very beautiful parts – this is the view from the CM building roof. It’s always a worry whether the luggage gets thrown around or damaged on the journey, so […]

Published Update

If you’re in the UK, you’re most likely enjoying your 4 day weekend. For me? There’s still some work involved, but that’s how I like it. Here’s an update of my work in the press. Very happy to have shot a Godsized poster for their latest trip to Germany. The shoot, was at times, beyond hilarious! I must share some of the out-take pics with you all. The poster is currently printed and sold at A2 size. There’s also postcard sized stickers available. Then there’s the pic spread for Terrorizer Magazine feature ‘Hard of Hearing’, with Killswitch Engage and Trivium just before their show in London. You can see from the pics it was also rather entertaining when the photo shoot part gets mentioned! Various live and random pics of Therion, Arcturus, Iced Earth, Orange Goblin, Matt Harvey (eating a dog called Widget?!) and Killswitch Engage beating up the Terrorizer Features Editor – Tom – with the help of Trivium (Adam D pulling Tom’s hair is just brilliant, as he asked him first if he could do it!) The Crowbar (with support from Dripback and Hang the Bastard) show was immense with pics printed in Issue 247 of Terrorizer. Until […]

Killswitch Engage Live

I haven’t done a post in forever! Terrorizer have been keeping me busy with lots of shoots – which you will see in coming issues. So let’s get up to speed! Following my Trivium post in February (where they had the double headliner show with Killswitch Engage), here’s a few of my favourites from the KsE set. A performance full of passion and energy, that was also entertaining! Definitely a contender for my favourite gig of the year. Mx PS. I love Jesse’s socks!
