In Da Club

Fun and games at 50 Cent tonight. Nobody's pass was sorted, so everyone was let in. That was jolly.

Beautiful Ones

Great to be approved to shoot Suede at the Ritz last night, but I do wish they'd had better lighting. Here's one I liked, though.



Bad Lieutenant at 53 Degrees on Saturday. At least they brought some lights this time. A disappointingly small crowd for what turned out ot be a great show.

New York

And is if by contrast, there are some nights when the lighting guy is on your side. Paloma Faith at Manchester Academy, then...

In This Light And On This Evening

There are nights when the lighting guy is with you. There are nights when the lighting guy is against you. Editors tonight was pretty much unequivocally the latter...

Another soundboard shoot tonight, this time for Katherine Jenkins. Surprised to know two out of the three songs we shot - Angel by Sarah McLachlan and No Woman No Cry. Big stage production, looked very impressive.

Mysterious Girl

And so to the Apollo for Peter Andre. This is the kind of well lit show where I'd usually be spoilt for choice when I get home, but was really off my game tonight. Don't think the edited set show it that way, but that's definitely how I felt.

Number One Enemy

Gig two of the week, Daisy Dares You at Oldham Library. I love the Get Loud in Libraries concept - hope to see more of these happen, if with slightly better lighting. ;)

Daisy Dares You

Shoots coming up this month include Peter Andre, Editors, Bad Lieutenant and 50 Cent...

Proudest Monkey

I'm afraid I still don't get Dave Matthews, but lots of people very clearly enjoying themselves at the Apollo tonight.
