Kanda Bongo Man

Monday, May 8th, 2006

This was a Radio 3 event at the Wardrobe in Leeds as part of the FuseLeeds festival. The photos will appear in fRoots magazine. I had a few seconds to grab these shots backstage! Kanda Bongo Man was fantastic, the band reminded me of Kekele. Live photos to follow…

Cover of Jazzwise

Many thanks to my Kate (my wife) for buying me the latest Jazzwise with my photo on the cover. My photos are also used in the article itself. You can see the original photos in my previous blog entry here. I’m finding it hard to look at it without being hyper-critical but it’s still a nice feeling!

Athena Andreadis… Pre-Concert

Saturday, March 18th, 2006

I first caught Athena at Whitby Musicport in 2004 singing traditional Greek music and bumped into her again at Womad last year. She’s very photogenic as well as having a great voice!
Here are some shots of Athena and the rest of her trio taken in the afternoon before the gig, unfortunately Athena had a cold so we couldn’t spend long outdoors and we didn’t have much time at all by the piano so the shots were a bit rushed. Live gig photos to follow…

(Edit… the two heads might look a bit random if you don’t know they’re Athena’s musicians: guitarist Werner Kristiansen and double bass player Tom Mason.

Dennis Rollins Promo Shoot

Monday, February 13th, 2006

I did a photoshoot yesterday for jazz trombonist Dennis Rollins, one of the most inspiring jazz musicians in the UK. The results from the shoot should end up on the cover of Jazzwise magazine and the cover of Dennis’ new album ‘Big Night Out’ which is currently being recorded.
