A couple of weeks ago I went to see Nine Black Alps at The Fleece in Bristol. This isn’t the first time I’ve seen them, having seen them at Reading Festival a number of years ago. They’re another favourite from my teenage years, and I’m loving their new album Candy For Clowns! This gig was awesome to photograph, great energy which I hope comes off in the pictures, here’s a few of my favourites –
Love this track off the new album! –
Next week I’m going to Dot To Dot festival in Bristol! I’m really hoping for this heat wave to begin that weekend…
Thanks for reading as always!
On Wednesday I went to see Giant Drag on their farewell tour at The Fleece in Bristol. I have loved this band since their first album came out when I was just 16 years old, about eight years ago. The album ‘Hearts and Unicorns’ is still something I play regularly, I love it. I’m not going to describe it to you because I’m not a music reviewer and I’ll just sound like a dick. Here’s one of my faves.
The gig was awesome, and I can’t believe it was so long ago that the album came out! It’s really sad that they’re not going to be making music anymore, but maybe Annie will have a solo career or something? Here are some pictures I took of Annie Hardy.
I should be uploading more to my photography page soon which is –
Hope you like them, and please let me know what you think. I’m always open to shooting any bands live so if you need a photographer and you play in a band or solo, hit me up! I’m based in Bristol and my email is-
So I’ve been wondering recently whether or not to use a watermark for my photographs. You often come across pictures on the net with a photographers logo on them, whether they’re in a corner somewhere or smack bang in the middle, and a lot of them time they look really ugly. I don’t want to use one because I am paranoid everyone wants to steal my work, but that is always a possibility when you put your work online. As somebody that is currently unemployed I especially don’t want anyone using my images for things that I could be getting paid for without me knowing. Watermarking is also great for promotional reasons, if you put your name on an image people can easily trace who the photographer is if they like the photo. After some helpful advice on Facebook I’ve decided to use a small watermark. It’s only very tiny compared to a lot of these marks, because I really don’t want it to detract from the actually photograph.
These are the images I took at Nick Oliveri’s acoustic set at The Fleece in Bristol. What an amazing gig!
Thanks for reading! I hope to be doing much more live music photography now 🙂
