NME, Tubs, new site & more!

20 11 2011

Since we’ve last spoken, or rather, since i’ve last had words with you (you mute dryshite, you) I’ve been selected from over 100,000 photographs to make the last 10 in the reportage category in the 2011 NME photography awards. It was great news for me. I couldn’t believe the e-mail when it came through, really. There’s the image above in all it’s monochrome glory on the lovely NME site. 

Turns out some people were interested in this development. So the Daily Mail got in contact about writing an article about the whole thing and RTE asked for a brief interview. And there I was, last Tuesday, talking to the Daily Mail reporters and Ryan Tubridy about the competition and the results coming out that night.

Sandwiched between Randy Rox and shite songs. Result!

‘Cept the results never came out on time…

They’re due before this weeks magazine hits the shelves, I’m told. Which is just as well. Me nerves are shot waiting to hear the news. I’ve been up every morning refreshing the NME page and checking it last thing before i go to bed. It’s a sad existence, really. But you couldn’t imagine what it’d mean to me. To go to NME and talk to their photographers would be good enough, let alone the Nikon camera that comes as a prize! It’d be phenomenal. In the space of three years to go from a student nurse to a photographer recognised by the NME is just amazing. But I don’t want it to end just there. Nah, I want to go to the top, baby! 😛

Anyway, I’m presuming the results were delayed due to legendary, hero man Danny North leaving the NME to shoot for Q, Kerrang and more with a different media group. So hopefully they get an equally impressive photographer to fill his boots in meeting the winners!

So there y’are.

Well, that’s not all that happened, actually. I was also chosen to have a photograph exhibited at the Ulster Hall, during Belfast Music Week, got selected to photograph new upcoming talent for TV and chosen as one of 12 Irish photographers to exhibit at the HWCH festival. Oh and I’ve updated the website. It’s still www.deadl.ie, cept it’s proper fancy now. And it should run nicely on ipods iphones, Ipads and the like now.

So yeah. A busy few weeks.

But enough about me. How have you been? Did you get that boil seen to in the end?
