A home for the things I think are worthy of sharing. Will largely be photography based.

Gig: Olly Murs, Ella Eyre + Bright Sparks

Olly Murs

A set from my second event at The O2 Arena – this time Olly Murs plus guests.

This was the first event I’ve been to with a runway of sorts. We were warned initially that we’d have to stay at the front as pyrotechnics would be going off towards the back of the stage. Alas I missed photographing them going off – Boo! I just had my camera down for a fraction of a second.

At the O2 – you can’t take your camera bag into the arena – you have to leave it back stage. Last time I had a lens bag on my belt but I forgot it this time. A lot of photographers often have two bodies, especially from the main agencies – but I can’t justify that. The lens case I use for these things doesn’t really work well – belt loop too low on it – so I might look to buy some alternative option.

Olly Murs show was a great spectacle – great stage lighting/ background graphics.

Ella Eyre was great – struck me as a cross between Amy Winehouse and Lauryn Hill. listening to her on Spotify -0 sounds very Amy Winehouse but then there are lots of Housy remixes.

Gig: Dan Croll, Panama Wedding + Farao

Another gig job.

This time at Koko (London) last week.

Unusually there were two support acts – Panamo Wedding + Farao.

Here’s some Spotify links for you:

Dan Croll himself was a bit tricky to photograph as he has rather a large microphone and often would stay very close to it.
