Interview and feature on

Recently interviewed me about my first book, where I was granted 'behind-the-scenes' access to document much of the modern alternative music scene, suspension performances and tattooing across the UK. I was also asked to compile a list of some of my favourite songs for the feature too. The interview, photographs and soundtrack can be found here : here. While you are there I recommend you look around the whole site as it really is one of the best written pop/culture sites around at the moment.

Tiny Teeth.

Tiny Teeth are a husband and wife team that write, record and produce musical scores for mobile device applications. Generally people in the creative industry don't automatically switch off at the end of a working day and it is often impossible to make a separation between them and their art. I was invited into their home to produce some editorial images which reflect this, as well as capturing some of the chemistry between them . It didn't take me long to come up with the concept of Ed and V sitting on their sofa surrounded by an arsenal of instruments and recording equipment.

These are some of my favourite shots from the session, as they really capture the essence of the partnership. We also shot some images for publicity, this time going for a low-key image focusing purely on the relationship between the two, using only simple props to give context.

No Rest on Friday

I had intended to spend most of today editing my pictures for my upcoming project and exhibition. Instead fate had a much more exciting day planned for me. First off was a shoot with the bassist and guitarist(s) from DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN. The band played an intense set that afternoon and I managed to survive about half of the set(the good news is so did my camera). The evening was a lot more mellow seeing NEBULA play, and it was interesting to see what the new drummer (from Hot Hot Heat) was able to bring to their live show.
