Peter Murphy / Bauhaus

One of the highlights of my music photography career so far was photoing Peter Murphy and David J performing In The Flat Field by Bauhaus (and other assorted hits). i was an absolutely massive fan back in the day and i continue to love their music. They didn’t disappoint live and in fact were totally amazing. Such a privilege to shoot them. And because i was shooting for the ever excellent UnderTheRadar i could spend time editing the photos to […]

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 )

She’s quite a challenge to photo as she moves around quickly and is quite an expressive performer. You can see the full set of my images […]

The Dandy Warhols Live at the Powerstation Auckland

From a photographic point of view the lighting was a challenge. but that just adds to the fun and meant i had to edit […]
