Behind again on the updates... a few shooting notes where relevant.

Olly Murs - Manchester Arena
Good fun to shoot - at the back for first song, but then uses the ramp at the front, with great light.

Kerrang Tour - Manchester Academy
No light on stage, but flash allowed, making for something of a tricky shoot with bands running around all over the stage. Here's a quick shot of New Found Glory.

Dream Theater - Manchester Apollo
Seated show at the Apollo means a side-on shooting position. Not ideal for these energetic prog-rockers.

Diana Vickers - Ruby Lounge
Hopes that the Ruby Lounge might have had a whip round for some better lights were dashed when Diana arrived on stage, bathed in the usual reds and blues.

Black Keys - Manchester Apollo
I enjoyed this one. Tricky lighting, lots of reds and a harsh light on the right side of the guitarist's face.

Try This At Home

So, I haven't actually blogged in all of November. Does that mean I haven't taken any photos? Erm... no. I've just been a bit busy.

I Kissed A Girl

A pleasure to shoot Katy Perry again at the MEN Arena tonight, even if it was from the back of the room. Much more at The Music Fix tomorrow.

School's Out

Terrific fun shooting Alice Cooper tonight - 4 songs from the pit, then the whole show from anywhere else in the venue.

Dream On

Noel Gallagher tonight at the Apollo - not a pit shoot but we were pretty close, if constrained to one spot.
