Tommy McNulty

8 08 2011

I recently met up to photograph musician Tommy McNulty in Temple Bar. Having found my 50mm (It had run away on me) I took it along and used it for the first time in far too long. I also brought the strobes with me, as I am now wont to do and worked as best I could with some very¬†changeable¬†lighting conditions. I’m happy with the shots, they’re fit for their purpose (for posters – hence al the ‘white space’), but Tommy should be appearing on Deadl.ie again soon, albeit in more fun shots.

 

We also gave levitation a go. It was a bit freaky.

 

 

 





The Tallest Man On Earth

4 06 2011

A lying bastard he may be (he’s no more that 5’6″, I reckon), but Kristian is a fine entertainer. So good in fact that he moved a couple in the front row to spend the entire first three songs liplocked. It was only himself and the guitar, strutting around the stage for the most part of the night, which could have been a disaster, visually, had he not been so energetic. Anyway, he was bopping away and here are some of the pictures I gotted:

 

Oh and here’s his sister. She was in the support band, but I didn’t catch their name, but they were good. I like this shot too!

 





Choice Muisc Awards (Part Two – mostly Adebisi and Cast of Cheers)

After trawling through the other 7.9gbs of photos, I found some others I quite like. Havn’t got around to them all yet, but there a-coming!

Cast of Cheers:

Maykay, Fight Like Apes:

 

Adebisi Shank:

 

 





Choice Music Award

4 03 2011

Carpet burns on my knees, two dead batteries, more caffeine ingested than I care to admit and 8gbs of photos. That was the Choice Music Awards for me this year. Two Door Cinema Club took the gong in the end (and gave the 10k prize fund to charity. Nice.), but that was almost immaterial. The Irish Music Scene is f*cking fantastic these days. Adebisi Shank were stomper, James Vincent McMorrow brought the drunk crowd to a silence, Fight Like Apes seemed to win over even Morrissey (Yeah, I know – he’s definitely following me) and Cathy Davey is like a cure for anything.

Anyway, here’s the pictures you were after I take it. There’ll be more from Adebisi and The Cast of Cheers in the coming days, but make do with this batch til then.

(Imelda May wasn’t there, she was in Australia or something, so you won’t find her here. Oh, and if you don’t know who’s who, just leave your mouse hover over a picture for a second and bingo-bango it’ll tell you. Technology, eh? Magics.)





Fight Like Apes, Tripod, 28/11/2010

30 11 2010

Third bad gig in a row.

For whatever reason – and I even copped it but never adjusted it – I managed to change my shooting mode from Raw (Highest qaulity image capture available) to .Jpeg Basic (Lowest quality). So the pictures were tiny, couldn’t be edited to my normal liking and had no decent tones in them. It was a pity. I really like Fight Like Apes and MayKay (the singer pictured above) is a fantastic visual performer. The pictures don’t do the performance justice. Sara Devine’s do, though, so check them out! There’s even a review link there for the gig.

Hopefully I’ll get the chance to shoot them before the year is out – and not cock it up big time. Next up is Arcade Fire, so I’d best get the finger out.
