Reb Fountain live at the Tuning Fork

New Zealand has more than its fair share of amazing musicians and Reb Fountain is up there amongst the best.   it was just her and a guitar, but that was plenty!  I caught hints of PJ Harvey in her singing at one point.   Check out her album Hopeful and Hopeless on spotify etc for some beautiful listening I was shooting the show Joshua Hedley for Getty Images.  You can see those below as well as a few bonus images !

Miguel live in Auckland

I had great fun photoing Miguel (an American singer, songwriter, actor and record producer) for Getty Images last night.  It was a front of house shoot which is a mixed blessing for photographers.  On one hand you’re a long way from the stage and are looking through waves of raised hands (and raised phones).  But on the other you get to enjoy the light show and the visuals as if you were in the crowd. It was a great show […]

Bernie Griffen And The Thin Men live in Auckland

i had the pleasure of photoing Bernie Griffen And The Thin Men on Friday night.  I’d heard of Bernie Griffen before but never properly listened to his music.  As i prepared for the show i listened to the new ‘Doors Wide Open’ album and loved its words and melodies.  Live it was even better ! Photos taken for UnderTheRadar.  Read more about Bernie Griffen And The Thin Men here

The Lowest Fidelity live in Auckland

I really enjoyed The Lowest Fidelity.  I was expecting a chap and a guitar (not a bad thing by the way) and what we got was a brit punk inspired racket.  And a wild jovial front man with a good line in punter patter!  A great support band for Bernie Griffen and The Thin Men. Photos taken for UnderTheRadar.  Read more about The Lowest Fidelity here

hackedepicciotto live in Auckland

hackedepicciotto are a mini supergroup. If you get a chance to see them, do – and also check out their album here!   I got to photo them for the lovely people at UnderTheRadar Rather than attempting to explain myself, their bandcamp page describes them perfectly: hackedepicciotto are Alexander Hacke and Danielle de Picciotto. Both are legends of their own making: Danielle de Picciotto moved to Berlin in 1987, to become the lead singer of the band „Space Cowboys“, the co-initiator of […]

The Brian Jonestown Massacre live in Auckland

I was lucky enough to get to photo The Brian Jonestown Massacre on Saturday night.  I photoed them a few years back too and they were the same shambolic genius!  When they are motoring, these guys take you off to another planet and tonight had all the highs (and between song frustrations) of a classic BJM show.  Highly recommended!  (with thanks to UnderTheRadar )

Arthur Ahbez live in Auckland

Auckland psychedelia-ists Arthur Ahbez supported The Brian Jonestown Massacre and were as excellent as ever.  I’ve seen them in venues big and small and this show was one of the best!  They are one of my favourite local bands.  (with thanks to UnderTheRadar )
