Dictaphone Blues live in Auckland

I’ve only ever seen Dictaphone Blues as a solo affair so it was great to see the full band version.  So many talented musicians in one tiny stage.  There was a great vibe and a friendly crowd.  You can see the pictures from Two Cartoons who were supporting here These pictures also appear on UnderTheRadar

Model Train Wreck – EP Release at Cupid Bar, Auckland

I got to catch the beginning of Model Train Wreck’s excellent set on Friday night at the Cupid Bar in Pt Chev, Auckland.  They are a fun band with great songs and really worth checking out. I always like to research the bands i’m going to be photoing and i discovered an earlier album of theirs on Spotify which really enjoyed.  I love recognising music while photoing a band so i was delighted they played some tracks from that album at […]

Halsey and Kehlani live in Auckland

I photoed Halsey with support from Kehlani for Getty Images this week.  Halsey’s stage show was really dramatic during the first few songs, but  due to the lighting and smoke, and the fact we were shooting from the sound desk near the back of the stadium, photoing was a challenge! Here are some of the photos with additional edits.

Gibbs Farm

I recently got to photo at Gibbs Farm for a fundraising event.  Gibbs Farm is an amazing private farm which is littered with sculptures – all of which are massive!  The fundraiser was for a school choir trip to Italy and the choirs sang by a wall sculpture just as the rains moved in!  Luckily it was only a passing shower and the clouds during the day gave the photos a bit of atmosphere and provided interesting shadows on the […]

Robbie Williams live at Spark Arena

I had the massive pleasure of photoing Robbie Williams at Spark Arena.  Robbie was my first arena concert a couple of year’s back so i knew it would be a fun concert to shoot.  And, as expected, Robbie didn’t disappoint.   It was the usual first three songs, no flash, but during this time Robbie was being Robbie all over the stage, hugging members of the audience, dancing with his dancers, posing for the photographers etc. These photos were taken for […]
