GITs, Ian Rush and a Sabre Tooth tiger.

Things have been busier than ever here this year. I can’t believe it’s May already, this year is FLYING by. I’ve been a bit slack on the blogs – once you get a bit behind with it, you keep putting it off and the more you put it off, the bigger the blog gets. So this is a quick recap of whats been going on. Image heavy post incoming!

Liverpool held it’s inaugural GIT Award (brought to life by Get Into This blogger Peter Guy) – held at the awesome upstairs venue in Leaf on Bold Street, 10 acts performed. Loved Ones won, which was a brill surprise. I share a studio with them and shot their video for ‘Are you hiding out in Hell?’ so it was great to see them get some recognition, they’re pretty special, go check ‘em out. Well done folks! Some other fantastic people nominated, Liverpool’s music scene is probably one of the few in the country that could pull off their own awards. Big ‘grats to Mugstar, Outfit, Stealing Sheep, Esco Williams too. Awesome seeing John Robb compere too.

I spent an hour with the Financial Director of Hill Dickinson in Liverpool for a story on his role and his climb to becoming a successful FD. Some folks made my images in nice little video. Colin was ace and the view from his building is fantastic. I got to shoot in B/W too! :O

I normally don’t post the press bits that I shoot from time to time, but Ian Rush is a personal hero from my childhood and the chance to meet him was awesome. He was supporting Sport Relief with a signing in Speke.

I’ve had some portraits at LJMU, these are for external marketing and profiling, some great folk always mega friendly.

The lady at the bottom was heavily involved in analysing the skeletal system of the ancient Sabre Tooth tiger. She was so so so into it, I love shooting people who really love what they do. Mega interesting and lots of fun.

More blogs coming today…
