Unreleased Landscape and Urban Photos...

Another update with some unreleased photos from last year!
I had a few gigs that I photographed all at the one time and I ended up forgetting about a few landscape photographs that I had taken at lots of excellent locations and whilst I was browsing through my files I stumbled across them and couldn't help but wonder why I had never posted them in the end!
This group of photos were taken roughly around April last year, and although I've only just got around to posting this now, it's actually been sitting in my drafts for a few months as I wanted to add way more photos and I've always had something more important to edit...hence why I'm just finally getting around to uploading this now!
My favourite shots along with the Addams Family-esque hotel that starts off this blog post also includes this one below...The Sweeney Tod Demon Barber...mainly because of the statue outside, it made me smile, although I'm not sure why anyone would actually want to get their hair done've gotta be brave to do that!

Surgyn, The Arches Glasgow, Live Photos.

Back with photos of Surgyn at The Arches in Glasgow, supporting Combichrist.
These guys are actually from Dundee, my hometown...but I hadn't actually heard of them before this show...I think I need to get out more haha or maybe stop travelling elsewhere for gigs!
However, if you haven't heard of Surgyn, go check out their music! It's good to see local acts on tour with bands like Combichrist.

If you want to view the full set you know what to do, my Flickr page has all of the photos from the show Have a look, I'm actually starting to make use of my pro account now!
Hopefully I'll have even more photos soon :)

Xavia, The Arches Glasgow, Live Photos.

Another quick blog post with some photos of local acts who were supporting Combichrist at The Arches in Glasgow. Firstly to fill you in, I never managed to actually get photos of Combichrist in the end as I had to leave early and missed their set...kinda gutted about that however I did get photos of two of their support bands.
So this group were the first support of the night and are called Xavia, I believe they are from Glasgow. If you haven't heard of them already you should check out their music on their website, they're pretty good.

Lighting was actually great for The Arches, never shot a gig at this venue before so I was quite surprised...although they need to tone down on the strobe's impossible to take photos in, timing is key! Anyway, if you want to view the full set from this show, go to my Flickr page at,
I'll have another post soon with photos of Surgyn, stay tuned.
