Picture To Burn

It's been a bit of a weird few days since shooting Lily. I've had shots in print in the Sun, the Mirror and the Sport. I've also had shots on websites for the Sun, Mirror and Heat, along with at least three overseas uses.

Here's The Sun using three shots on one page.

Lily Allen Tearsheet

Obviously I've got fairly mixed emotions about the whole thing and whether I'd do it differently next time. Off to shoot Laura Marling tonight, so normal service will be resumed.

(IE pretty pictures that nobody publishes)

Everyone's At It

Lily Allen at the Apollo tonight. Bit of an odd evening - I had a ticket and had planned to watch the show but then got the call up to shoot. Was asked to rush in a few shots for possible inclusion in tomorrow's papers. So I threw some over - one of her pulling a pint, another with a silly face, one where she's giving another photographer the finger, and a couple of more sensible shots where she's just a girl looking pretty in a dress.

Didn't know that the one where she was making a silly face was because she was slightly exposed until a closer look later. I expect the papers won't notice said wardrobe malfunction (I didn't, was too transfixed by the goofy look on her face) but you never know.

Here's a couple of non-malfunctioning shots.

Appropriately (considering this blog is named after one of their songs), here's Tegan & Sara from tonight's Manchester Academy show.

Started Out With Nothing...

Seasick Steve at Manchester Apollo. Always comes across as such a genuine guy, right back to when we caught him by accident at Glastonbury a few years back.
