Mahmoud Ahmed

Wednesday, May 17th, 2006

Mahmoud Ahmed photos seem popular at the moment, this month’s Songlines magazine has one of my full-page photos and The Independent contacted me today to see if I could supply them with any photos. It looks like they’ll publish one of the photos below in the Friday supplement.
I seem to be doing quite well getting my jazz and world music shots published… shame the rock ones are so much harder to shift.


Cover of Jazzwise

Friday, April 21st, 2006

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!

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.






Tip#2 Capture Atmosphere

Wednesday, December 21st, 2005

When I was employed by Guardian Unlimited for the Glastonbury Festival(http://www.guardian.co.uk/arts/glastonbury/0,14571,1218854,00.html), they actually didn’t want me to take any photos of the bands! They were most interested in shots that showed the atmosphere of the event. Luckily, I did blag a photographer’s pass for all the main acts which my portfolio needed at the time, but I did work very hard to supply The Guardian with plenty of shots away from the stages.
At any music event it is always important to take as many photos as possible that show who the audience are, and tell a bigger story. Show as much context as you can.
