Way back in August I flew to Chicago to spend a couple of hours with 5 Seconds Of Summer as they played a couple of nights at an Amphitheatre on the outskirts of the city. The trip was very much a fly and shoot type of trip but we did manage to get a morning off to explore Chicago and also managed to take in one of the most amazing thunderstorms I've ever seen as it passed over our hotel. It's out now and it's a very interesting read - the writer is a very talented chap. It's out now in...

02 Nov Rock Sound Cover September

I trekked to Sheffield in August to shoot Bring Me The Horizon for the September issue of Rock Sound Magazine. It's always great to see the guys - we've been working together on and off now for their entire career and it's always good to catch up. The issue is now on sale at all good newsagents and available online for iPad. Sorry to say there are no BTS the images from this shoot as we had to shoot in a fully blacked out room as all the effects were done in camera. Here's some grabs of the final piece...

06 Sep Alternative Press Cover – September

In June I spent the afternoon with Bring Me The Horizon in the studio shooting the September cover of Alternative Press Magazine. The studio was big and with a mix of setups but no windows that opened - on the hottest day of the year that wasn't the most ideal thing! It's always nice to see these guys and hang out. This issue is currently on all newsstands in the USA and available on iPad.   ...

22 Jul Rock Sound Cover July

The latest issue of Rock Sound has just hit the shelves, I shot the cover back in May when I travelled up to Wrexham to spend the day with Neck Deep as they rehearsed for an upcoming tour. I also shot some press shots with the guys before they headed out to Warped Tour, we shot these after the magazine shoot (last mag picture) and around Wrexham. This was my last shoot with the Nikon gear before I made the jump back to Canon in late May and the first time I've ever shot for a magazine where they gave away a...

20 Jul Fire Service in the studio

A few months ago I shot some personal work with my local fire fighters. The local fire chief liked my work and after a few meetings we’d decided on a date in March to shoot. I shot two very different sets of images in one one day with White and Red Watch, this is the first set of images which were shot in a studio environment setup in a spare decontamination/cleaning room. Space was tight but the guys all gathered round to rib each other - if there’s one constant that goes through the fire service it’s the banter that gets...
