2015 was the year I pushed myself to do more as a photographer, I tried new things and got onto my first mini tour with an incredible band. Over the course of the year, I produced some of my favourite photos that I’ve ever taken and shot some huge names, outside of the typical rock genre that I’m used to. Here’s my favourite shots from the year, with a little story with each.
Pierce The Veil are one of those bands that I grew up on, really. One of the few that I was super into in high school and enjoyed taking photos of whenever they came by Newcastle. I never imagined in a million years that I’d have the opportunity to work with them, as their photographer, for a few of their shows. I can’t thank their management, crew, their label and the band themselves for being so kind and accommodating at every date I did. I hope we can cross paths again soon – until then here’s some of my favourite shots from each date.
There’s been quite a lot happening in the past few months, that I haven’t had the most ample of opportunities to update. University is drawing to a close for another year and I’ve been graced with two firsts, marks I never imagined I’d receive this year. I’m rather fond of them regardless. On the photo front, I’m still working my ass off continuously by bouncing my way around the country to cover some pretty cool bands. Most recently is the pictured Pierce The Veil, who’s management were happy for me to go along to three of their shows to be their photographer for the night. The last of which happens tomorrow, Newcastle’s date of The World Tour.
