The last entry of the year, I feel this year has gone at light speed, though very productive, I can’t wait for more exciting shoots and productions in 2011.
The site has recently seen some improvement and the landing page now features direct links to the four main sites: this one for the general photography but also my video portfolio, the music photography collection Loud Pixels as well as the newer music related videos on Loud Pixels Live.
Here for a sample of the recent works from this end of year 2010, in which I shot 183 bands that’s one every 2 days on average, in no particular order:
The recent highlight in my opinion was a great interview of Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead that I filmed backstage at the Brighton Center for The Quietus.

And the video:
Another of the big highlights was going on tour across Europe with the Californian girls of the band The Like to document the tour. The documentary hasn’t been broadcast yet and can’t be shown here at the moment but will be in my Videofolio as soon as it is!
The Like in Hamburg - Oct. 2010
Far less rock’n'roll, you probably all know this chap, or have heard him maybe too often, Gio Compario for a shoot to promote his Christmas single in the press, shot at the Hyde Park Winter Wonderland Santa’s grotto.

To stay in the winter vibe, the promotional shots for the Natural History Museum ice rink, featuring an army of penguins.

The US band Mona, frequently tipped to be one of the bands to make it big in 2011, shot at Rough Trade East, published in the Guardian on the Christmas edition. Keep and eye (or an ear) on them.

October has also seen the great festival Oxjam in lots of Oxfam stores all across UK. The opening was made by The Charlatans and Diana Vickers, among other artists.

A great interview with American band Needtobreathe filmed at their headline show at the Borderline. Hopefully catch them again this summer at Hard Rock Calling in Hyde Park in company of Bon Jovi.

The very sweet presenter Zara Martin who I was shooting presenting the very crazy Sarenza high heels race in bricklane (a French race on high heels recruiting the UK team to meet the French one in Paris).
