Festival No.6

I was fortunate enough to head back down to Portmeirion this year to shoot the stunning Festival No.6, it's truly unique setting puts it far ahead of many other festivals the UK has to offer. The way they curate the line-up to merge both music, art & performance is something to behold. Here's a selection of my favourite shots, enjoy.

Reading 2016

So the last three years I've shot Leeds Festival for NME, this year it was the turn of Reading. We only had a small team this year but I had a blast, here's a few highlights, enjoy.

Tomorrowland

I've heard about this festival the past few years but hadn't chance to go witness or shoot it till this year. The only way to describe this festival is to say its like entering into another world a completely EDM world. The attention to detail is mesmerising the production of the stages looks like it has come straight from a film set, which transforms at night with the use of light, smoke, streamers, confetti & pyro. The whole theme and detail is very important to the organisers 'we wanted to create an ice cube with the Tomorrowland logo on, which took months of sampling, if I only get one person to notice it and smile then we have achieved our goal' that level of detail is apparent throughout the entire site and makes the festival truly unique. When you hear that 2.4 million people clicked to buy tickets within the first few seconds of them going on sale you can see the reach it has! Only 180,000 are lucky enough, EDM fans from across the world, Australian, American, Indian, Kenyan, you name it there was a flag for every country. I'll let the photos tell the rest.

Open'er Festival 2016

Second time heading over for this festival covering it for NME, the line-up gets better year on year! Wonderful people, wonderful place, can't wait to get back over there. Here's some of my highlights.

Capital FM Summer Time Ball 2016

This year I was invited to be on the team to shoot this years Summertime Ball hosted by Capital FM. Pop isn't something I often shoot so I was well up for the opportunity to photograph something out of my comfort zone, first time shooting at Wembley Stadium as well.  The day was manic with around 20 artists performing! Some for only one song. Here's a few of my favourite shots from the event, big shout out to Victor Frankowski, Mike Massaro, Patricia Board, and always awesome to work alongside my mate Jordan Curtis Hughes, thanks to the amazing Capital FM team as well.
