Pete Doherty at The Fleece in Bristol and My Glastonbury Experience

Music, My photography

Hello again!

Last Thursday I went to The Fleece again to shoot Pete Doherty at one of his intimate gigs before The Libertines reunion in Hyde Park. This was a great opportunity for me, and kind of insane considering how obsessed me and my friend Alice were with him back in the day. I just googled when ‘The Libertines’ the album came out and it was bloody 2004! Wow ten years ago. That was such a great time, I love that album. When Pete moved on to Babyshambles I went to see him at Bristol academy as well as Glastonbury in 2005, and although he always turned up late I still remember those gigs as being great fun. There was one point when me and Alice were walking through the mud at Glastonbury and we saw Pete D and Kate Moss walking towards us. I remember whispering to Alice and hiding my face behind my paper cider pint trying not to scream (we were 15 at the time). That was around the time I became really interested in live music photography and started following photography blogs.

The gig on Thursday had so much energy and the crowd really really enjoyed it despite him being late on. Pete was on stage with a girl on the violin, who was super talented, whilst he had his acoustic guitar. The gig reminded me how good a song writer he is, playing all the best Libertines and Babyshambles songs. He was really funny as well and even sang somebody in the crowd happy birthday!

Last weekend was Glastonbury which was absolutely awesome! I really really enjoyed it. The best performance for me was London Grammar, which were on at the same time as Kasabian who I know a lot of people said were amazing as well. London Grammar were so perfect though, Hannah Reid has the most amazing voice and they had a live orchestra playing with them! At the end of the set the bloke closing the John Peel stage said “Wow, I think that’s probably one of the best closes we’ve had on the John Peel Stage”. I really wanted to cry whilst watching them but I didn’t let myself, I hate crying in public (nobody loves it I guess). If you go to see one band before you die, go and see London Grammar!

Other high lights include Metallica, Jack White, Courtney Barnett, Robert Plant and Annie Mae’s macaroni cheese stall!!!! Oh wow. I had macaroni with jalapeno’s and sour cream and it was just the best thing ever. The food at Glastonbury is so good, especially as a vegetarian, they have so much choice. Being there for 6 days I still didn’t get the chance to eat everything I wanted to.

I didn’t take a lot of pictures because I was so caught up in the fun! I wish I had taken more. Until next time!

A look back and a look forward

Fashion, Fashion photography, Music, My photography

(So this week I’ve been working on several different features for my magazine. I don’t post everything I do on here, only snapshots of parts of my work. I get all my ideas through past and present magazines I have enjoyed reading, plus many different ESTABLISHED photographers. I suppose if someone is¬†rigorously going through my blog that can become a bit confusing and some people might start getting very bizarre Ideas, especially if they’ve got a screw or two lose ūüôā¬†It’s always nice when people take a lot of interest in my blog)

I am really excited about the Glastonbury line up… even though I’m not going for definite. I have got tickets on the re-sale before, and I will again!

 

Next week I’ll be doing some more shoots around Bristol, and hopefully get some street style shots in there. I’ve also got a few exciting written features lined up for the magazine! I’m really happy with the work I’ve done so far, but now getting a bit panicky about the deadline…

Here are some more pictures I have taken over the last few weeks. I’ve got another shoot lined up next week!

This shoot was all about clashing colours with lots of inspiration from alternative fashion sites. I also wanted it to have a slightly dreamy effect.

This was a beauty/portrait shoot I did outside for a separate feature. It was so cold shooting this!

Thanks for reading, any questions just ask me. No crazies though!
