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 πŸ™‚ (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 πŸ™‚

Until next time!

Well over a thousand pounds was raised for Epilepsy Action at this event so next year make sure you’re there!

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


Damaged Stock 2011 – Mantra

Ok so this is part one of what is going to be a mammoth blogging session!

Last night was the 5th Annual Damaged Stock – Metal All Dayer at Nottinghams top venue Rock City. The event was raising money for Epilepsy Action and was a massive success with all of the bands donating their time for a good cause.

Unfortunately I couldn’t be there all day and didn’t arrive at the event until the evening so couldn’t cover all of the bands who played but I did manage to catch the last three bands of the day; Mantra, Triaxis, and headliners Evil Scarecrow.

I took absolutely loads of images and it’s been really hard to narrow it down to just a few of each band to blog. I will be uploading more to my facebook pageover the next few days

so if you want to see more images from these bands sets and some backstage shenanigans ‘Like’ the page and there’ll be plenty more coming soon πŸ™‚

Here are some images from Mantra:
