Lara Sunday

We all dreamt of a white christmas – but when everything was still covered in snow by new year the novelty value started to wear off. Always the optimist though I decided that snow may be cold but it is pretty and got to thinking how to make the most of it! So we braved the cold to do a promo shoot for the stunning Lara Sunday who is currently writing her debut album. I’ve heard a little bit of the work so far and trust me to say she’s a great singer would be an understatement!!  My toes have finally defrosted and here are a couple of the pics…

the end of the decade!!

Well 2009 has been a busy year for me – I decided to do a wee run down of some of my favourite shots of the year and its brought back so many good memories of the year!!  I’ve shot bands I’ve always dreamed off, worked with so many class people, travelled to festivals and seen some amazing shows, some of these shots  you’ll have seen before others you might not have! Thanks to everyone who I’ve had the pleasure of working with this year and here’s to 2010 being a great year for all of us!

My 2009 ….

I have always wanted to shoot ACDC they are one of my favourite bands ever so getting the chance to shoot their Dublin Date for Hot Press was a dream come true – made even better by this picture making it into Hot Press’ top photos of the decade in their annual out now!

ACDC at Punchestown


Then there was Download festival which I shot at for Kerrang this year – giving me the chance to shoot someone I’ve wanted to since I was a gothy teen  – Marilyn Manson – and also to snap some of the most hilarious characters I’ve ever met – it was an amazing weekend topped off my shooting Steel Panther – one of my fave bans of the year!
