Hot Stuff!

Open up the pages of the new issue of Hot Press and you’ll spy yours truly looking back at you (and its a rare occasion you see me on that side of a camera!) I’m well chuffed to be listed in the featured contributers section this fortnight right beneath Adele from Sons and Daughters, a band i love so that makes me even happier about it! Also have photos in from several gigs so go have a nosey… its the issue with Brian Cowen and Duke Special on the cover (vol 32 issue 22)

Also had a shot from the last Airbourne gig in the Belfast Telegraph with an interview by Edwin too (edwinmcfee.wordpress.com) – they’re back in Belfast next week so hoping for a repeat performance of Joel jumping off the stage and fighting his way through the crowd to pour himself a well deserved drink behind the bar!

Swan lake!

Spent today shooting for the paper – for a change the weather was lovely and I managed to cover everything from footee to fishing!  The swan wasn’t involved in either of them…

Give us back our land!

I was working a day shift for a paper today so I spotted this when I was between jobs – seems Minister Richie isn’t too popular in west Belfast – have to admit the little poem made me laugh though!

In celebration of my love of all things spooky and all things rockabily I’m heading to a rockabilly night in McCrackens tonight – before that though its off to photograph the Lisburn Firework Display for the organizers so here’s one of my favourite shots from the evening – I’m so jealous of these kids’ costumes!

Fancy Dress

Took a wee spin down town to go to Forbidden Planet earlier today and they were having an event with loads of folk dressed up in the most amazing costumes ever.  So I fought my way through the sea of kids to get photos of the predator and a storm trooper (they were both very friendly despite bein the bad guys!!)

Saturday Night Fever!

Tonight was the relaunch of the Coach nightclub in Banbridge so I was there shooting it for the owners.  Turned out to be a great night with appearances from local celebs including Titty Von Tramp, Miss NI and DJ Gareth Stewart – pics will be appearing in the press and the Coach website soon but in the meantime I had to give this dude the honour of being my pic of the day… bless him I’m thinking that’ll be a hell of  hangover!

 

One too many!

don’t feel too sorry for him though he cheered up pretty quickly when I asked could I get a photo…

Cheers!

Cheers!

day of rest???

 

Today was crazy busy but fun – started this morning shooting football again, then onto a Housing Rally in Carrickhill and then on to do a commercial shoot for a restaurant in Belfast so all in all a bit of a mixture but an enjoyable day none the less.

Couldn’t decide which pic I liked best for today’s post so you’re getting spoiled with two!!  The football shot is from one fo the matches I covered this morning- i just love the look on the guy’s face.  The other just made me laugh (yup I’m a big kid I know!)
