Pretty Green - Manchester Store Opening & James Buckley

I was commissioned by Pretty Green to travel up to photograph Liam Gallagher officially open their Manchester King's street store, with also Mani from Primal Scream and formally The Stone Roses performing an exclusive DJ set. Had to shoot interior shots and then some of Liam whist in the store, which i must say looks amazing.
Liam also gave an interview to the Manchester Evening News in which he said about the opening; “It always feels a bit weird coming back to your home town. There are always nerves about how you’ll be received but it’s looking good so far. If people are into it they’re into it, and if they’re not they’re not. It’s keeping me off the streets, you know what I mean? I just hope it continues to go on and keeps getting better.” 
Then on the Saturday I had went up to the Carnaby Store to photograph James Buckley (commonly known as 'Jay' from The Inbetweeners) playing an exclusive DJ set.  James played some great tunes and took some time away from the decks to pose for photos with fans. He was a really sound guy.

Pixie Lott

I was really happy to get the commissioned by Ilikemusic to do portrait and live shoot with one of the biggest female artists of 2010 Pixie Lott.  We did the portraits at the Dorchester Hotel in London and the live gig was a few days later at the Bournemouth O2 Academy

She was an absolute pleasure to photograph and at the live gig I managed to get some great images too (great lighting production) I will also put up a few more pics from the portrait shoot in early 2011 as this is when my main website will be updated. Click the interview here to see some more additional fly on the wall interview pics

Pioneer Ibiza Calender 2011

During the summer of 2010 I was again involved in photographing all the images for the Pioneer DJ Calender. This year we decided to cover the whole of Ibiza. Around 150,000 copies get printed worldwide and are given to people that buy the Pioneer equipment. It will also will be distributed for free around Ibiza.

The project was to show the impact Pioneer has on the island. I love being apart of this and the buzz getting back the finished article is amazing. The calender is a large A3 size and is 24 high gloss pages which features famous DJs, clubbers, dancers and the general vibe of the island.

Here is the calender in full and I have also included a few more pics from closing week which was amazing to shoot. Hope you like it.

I would like to thanks Mark, Simon, Resh and Dan Tait at Pioneer, Phil, Andi, Chris at Planet. Piers Dupoy for being my wing man on the Island! All the DJs who were great letting me photograph them and everybody else in Ibiza and the UK that have helped put this together.
