Tuner Photoshoot

10 07 2011

This is Tuner, a great band, being blasted with lights from all angles. After a quick edit of the 4gbs of photos from today, here’s a few early highlights. More to come soon!

Anyway, we started off at the back of their own studio (thems the wooden background images) – and moved towards St. Annes Park (surely the best place for photoshoots in Dublin.) Two flashes were used for all the pictures- an SB-600 and the impressive Metz-50. They’re relatively cheap and amazingly easy to use with radio triggers and deliver great results every time. I never thought I understood flashes completely, but after today I reckon I’ve got it down.

Anyway, if you like what you see and would like some pictures like this of your own, gimme a shot. Contact details are, handily, under the ‘contact’ tab at the top of the page!

Thesis : Behind the Irish Music Scene

24 03 2011

So here we are: The first samples of my thesis to date (Except in black and white). The Coloured versions will appear in a book, which I’ll hopefully put up here as a pdf after May.

I’ve basically followed bands around, arriving when they do (usually at 4pm) and going home after they do. I’ve hassled a lot of people, pointed cameras where I was told not to and woken up a disgruntled bass-player with an over enthusiastic flash (not recommended). I’ve shot the bands live, but for the book, only candid, behind the scene images will be used.

 

Let me know what you think!

 

 

 

 

 

 





Lower Dens, Vicar Street, 22/11/2010

23 11 2010

While this post should be called ‘Beach House, Vicar Street’, lack of lights during their performance meant that I have feck all pictures of worth for this site. That said, support act Lower Dens were bathed in a lovely abundance of light. I only wish I’d paid more attention to them and taken more pictures. Ah well.

 

And here’s the Beach House one’s for comparison:





Sunday Driver: Howth & Bull Island

19 04 2010

Make hay while the sun shines, and all that. After the most boring day in work ever, we headed to Howth while it was still bright. And then on to Bull Island. The plan was to try some strobist shots, but after some MAJOR TECHNICAL ISSUES (i.e dead batteries), I resigned to some landscapes. Click to view larger and download, if you want!
