Beady Eye - Royal Albert Hall

I was really excited at getting the opportunity of shooting at the Royal Albert Hall, as I had not been there before. Beady Eye were head ling the Friday night for The Teenage Cancer Trust, who had a week long event at the venue. With acts like Roger Daltery, Biffy Clyro, Tinie Tempah, Jessie J and Editors all headlining a certain day to raise money for the charity.

The gig was amazing and the band sounded better than the week before at The Troxy. I managed to get some great shots from the balcony too, where you can see how much of a fantastic venue it really is. Miles Kane supported the band once again and Roger Daltery came out and introduced the band. I had a great night and looking forward to the tour this month.

Beady Eye - London Troxy

The last few years I have been working closley with Liam Gallagher's clothing label Pretty Green on various project and events. So it was great to shoot some live photos for the label of Liam's new band Beady Eye. This was their first ever London gig at the Troxy  and it was amazing.  His vocal were spot on and the way the gig flowed was excellent. Pretty happy with images, the pit was rammed. There was a lot of buzz for this gig.  I will be putting up next week - Beady Eye's gig for The Teenage Cancer Trust at  Royal Albert Hall, so look out for my updates.

Katy Perry - Bournemouth

It was great to get to shoot the Katy Perry gig at The Bournemouth BIC, being one of the biggest artists in the world at the moment.  I knew before hand that there was no pit and we would have to shoot from the back, so it was a bit restrictive shot wise. It was a big disappointment as I knew the production for the gig would be amazing. It is actually the first time that i have every shot from the back of a venue. I actually do like some of the shots with the crowd in as it gives it some atmosphere. It was also an eye opener on how many people were using camera phones!

I am pretty happy with the images from the night. The first one is my fav as i managed to capture Katy hearting the crowd and the lighting is wicked. She was a great performer and vocal were good too. Lets hope next time we can shoot from the pit :)
