It’s been a busy few weeks recently, not so much on the gig photography but more on the day job side of things. I’ve been looking to move jobs recently and have just landed a new one, so no more running to interviews on my lunch break or before work, all sorted! Now I can focus more on blogging, facebooking, instagramming and tweeting – the important stuff.
As I mentioned previously I’ve been offered an in-house photographer position with MAMA venues, which I’ve now started. I’ve recently shot a couple of bands at The Borderline which has been much fun – a nice small venue in an easy location with early stage times – what’s not to like?! Plus the bands there have been great so far, so I’m hoping to do some more in the coming weeks. A couple of weeks back I shot Johnny Foreigner there, and just last week Electric Soft Parade. I’m keeping my eye on upcoming gigs to see what takes my fancy and will grab what I can! If you know of any bands playing there coming up who would be good to photograph let me know and I’ll see if I can pop along.
A couple weeks ago I had a photo shoot with a lovely band from Southampton called Welcome Pariah, while they were up in Camden for a gig. We traipsed around the back streets (and telephone boxes!) of Camden on a Friday night and took some group shots of them in various places. Really easy to work with and just lovely guys all around. The photos are being used as press shots to accompany their upcoming single (June release date), so will share a few pics of the shoot when that’s all come out. Exciting stuff, for both the band and me!
Starting my new day job tomorrow (eep!), but honestly have loads and loads of gigs coming up in the next few weeks/months, so keep your eye on my twitter/instagram/blog etc. Photos of the recent Borderline gigs below, enjoy!
