Nottingham Light Night 2012

Last night was Light Night in Nottingham City Centre. It’s an annual event where the city puts on various light installations and displays. As always there was a great atmosphere with loads of people milling around enjoying the various projections and entertainment. Here’s some images I took whilst walking around the city:

Belinda Carlisle @ Nottingham Royal Concert Hall

So, here it is! A selection of images from Belinda Carlisle’s set at Nottingham Royal Concert Hall on Friday night. It was a great night and she still has loads of energy and great stage presence – the crowd were mad for her!

Backstage with Nina Smith @ Nottingham Concert Hall

Last night 80’s Icon – Belinda Carlisle played at The Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham with Nina Smith as her support act. I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to go backstage and shoot some documentary photography of Nina and her ‘Man Band’ during their soundcheck and before they went on stage as well as photographing their set and then Belindas.

Here are a few images from before they took to the stage:

Alternative nottingham band promos (and a moroccan man…)

It’s been almost exactly one month since my last blog post which is poor form! Sorry folks…

It’s been a really busy period at the studio so I’ve not had a huge amount of time for my personal work lately which is why I haven’t uploaded any images since my trip out to Morocco.

Now that the excuses are over I’ll get on with the content of my latest post and a little bit of background…

I have recently become a non-smoker!

It has been 9 days 4 hours and 58 minutes since my last cigarette 🙂 (i know this because of my iphone app that tells me how great I am for giving up!) and I’ve found myself feeling a lot more creative since giving up so I’ve been going back over some of my old images and giving them a bit of a spruce up and doing some ‘alternative’ edits on them.

I’ve been playing with textures and experimenting with some dark and moody looks for images; possibly the result of the angst and torment I’ve felt over the last week (poor me!)

Here are a few of the images I’ve been playing around with. If you follow my blog regularly you probably will have seen them before but this is a very different take on the originals:

I’ll make sure my next post features some nice fluffy, lovely images to make up for the dark, brooding feel of these 🙂

Until next time!

That’s the last post from this event for now. Hope you’ve enjoyed them 🙂

Evil Scarecrow @ Damaged Stock 2011

Evil Scarecrow headlined Damaged Stock last night at Nottingham Rock City and absolutely blew the crowd away – the reaction was unbelievable! I knew they were going to be good to see live and to photograph but I didn’t realise quite how good!

I’ve got so many images I lreally like from their set but here are just a few for now. I may add some more in a further post but I will definitely be adding more to my facebook page soon.
