Firstly, I apologise for the the word “oldies”…

Saturday afternoon was spent traveling in the heat by train, tube and bus to Kenwood house; a place that I have many fond memories of. I was born just up the road and I remember Sunday mornings, walking down the shaded paths feeding the squirrels ending up at the coach house for tea and cake….

So, Saturday… I arrived early with the hope of taking a set of “feature” shots, maybe talking to a few of the audience. However, upon arrival we were kept waiting for over an hour for our passes, gaining entry minutes before the support act (Little Fish).


I had traveled with the expectation (and hence preparation) of shooting Blondie from in front of the stage. Upon arrival we found this was not the case and they wanted us to shoot from the rear (a really long way way!). Had I known this, I would not have travelled. So what do I do? Walking round it was obvious that there were plenty of audience members with decent cameras. I am not traveling for 4.5 hours, leaving my family having a barbecue in wonderful sunshine to not get the images I am commissioned to get…

Sunday was the O2. Michael MacDonald was easy to shoot, if not a little un-intresting due to sitting behind a keyboard (he sounded great though)..


For me though, my shot of the weekend was soul legend Al Green enjoying the sweet sounds of the sax……
