Behind The Scenes.

More photographs from the Airplay competition, with Beautiful By Design, during soundcheck. The main point in this blog post however is that these photos have made me want to try out some more ideas with my Photography. I'm not sure if it's the fact that there's a video camera evident in both pictures, but there's just a complete Behind-the-Scene/Documentary vibe to it, and I want to explore this point of view in Music Photography. Considering my usual style is Live and Promotional.
If any bands are reading and are interested in a few Documentary type shots, please contact me via my contact form on my website, which is

Hi everyone,
Just a quick update again with some more Press, involving my Photography.
John of Beat Generator, Gig Promotions, contacted me for photographs of his previous gigs, and as I remembered I had taken a few We Are Scientists shots, I gave them to him for his new site! Here is what it looks like above, amazing right? The first, second and thirteenth photographs of We Are Scientists are by myself.

Beautiful By Design, Band Interview.

Ever since I wrote about my photography for Scotcampus magazine back in March I had decided I really wanted to get back into writing again. So, recently I thought it would be an amazing idea to write an interview for a band, and luckily I had the opportunity to write one for the excellent, Beautiful By Design. I caught up with Lead Singer Steve to write the piece and sent it off to a magazine a short while back.
Surprisingly enough to me, the interview actually got published for a Scottish magazine called Is This Music?
I'm so happy with it, I think it looks amazing, and it's my first ever band interview! Wow!
Here's what it looks like below.
