New Year's Eve

What's interesting, is that going into this year I had no plans at all to do anything. In fact, my plan was pretty much to keep my head down and just get on with the status quo.

Instead, I've been to Vancouver, Alaska and Paris, become a published photographer, bought a house and adopted a couple of cats. If you'd told me that I'd have shot Depeche Mode at the MEN Arena this time last year, I'd have laughed. And if you told me that was just the last of more than 70 bands I'd shot officially this year, or that I'd have been published in the national press and internationally, I wouldn't have believed it.

So I'll close the year with one from my favourite set of the year, Florence & The Machine, shot back in June outside St Phil's Church, Salford. The day before we went to Vancouver en route to Alaska, and the day before we completed on the house.

Florence And The Machine

Hopes for 2010? More of the same would be fine. Would be happy to just keep shooting bands (although a new body would be nice - I'm saving for a 7D) and hopefully open a few more doors and get more shots published.
