Last weekend was my first show back in the photo pit since maternity leave. What a great return to live show photography it was too! I was shooting for Terrorizer at Wembley Arena, London, for the ‘Eighth Plague Tour’ – Darkest Hour, Devil Driver, Bring me the Horizon and then Machine Head to headline. Obviously I can’t show you all the pics but here’s a few sneaky ones. The rest will be in the coming issue of Terrorizer Magazine. It was a blast!
Just a little update to let you all know my latest published news… REVOLVER Magazine, (USA based rock magazine) has printed one of my pictures full page in their latest issue out this week – their yearly Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock issue. You may all recognise Simone Simons from the shoot I did earlier this year, with Simone wearing jewellery from the Jane Doe Collection by Seventh Circle Artworks. Alongside that, REVOLVER have a Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock 2012 Calendar which is available for sale now. Another photo I took of Simone features in their Calendar – she is centre spread, the month of June. Order your Calendar here. Each month has dates marked with important birthdays and events in the Rock Music world. Both of these items are the first major pieces of publication I’ve had in the States so far and I’m super stoked! Lastly, with the release of Machine Head’s album ‘Unto the Locust’, Terrorizer Magazine printed full page my picture of Robb Flynn. Machine Head have just started touring on this album and I’m very much looking forward to catching up with the guys here in December at their London show!

At the age of 10, I watched Top of the Pops to see this man with long hair and makeup surrounded by his band rocking out on guitars to a song called ‘Poison’. I loved it and wanted to hear more. Stood in a photo pit 18 years later about to take Alice Cooper’s pictures was something I would have never imagined possible. Terrorizer Magazine really had no idea how much being booked for this meant to me. Before Alice Cooper was Joan Jett and Motorhead. A line up not to be messed with really. Such talent. Unfortunately at Wembley they have a policy whereby if you don’t have a ticket, you can’t stay for the show. A Photo pass doesn’t count. So everyone was escorted out. I got chatting to the security and they ended up giving me a wristband so I could go in for the show and they put my camera in a secure room until after the show. Nice eh!! Right at the front by the barrier I watched in awe of a great performer and stage show. They […]
