Although the blog may have been empty over the past week or two, my diary has not. There was the premiere of “Eat Pray Love” (Julia Roberts), a corporate poker party and a few other small shoots.
In this time I have only shot 2 music events, both at the Royal Albert Hall in Kensington. It’s a lovely building although not always the easiest to shoot at. The first event, just over a week ago was the “Orange Rock Corps”; a free gig for persons who had volunteered for community projects. The line-up included PlanB, Tao Cruse and N-Dubz. The acts moved at a fair pace but I managed to keep up, filling the images to my agency between acts. The headline act were Pendulum:
Last night I was back there again for a special one off A-Ha gig where they played the whole of thier “hunting high and low” . As we only have the first three songs it is always nice when the artist starts with a well known number, in this case it was “take on me”, their first and biggest hit.
The audience were seated and so there was no pit. We therefore kept low in front of the first row and in the aisles. Its always interesting to see which shots other photographers post from concert shoots. I always try to vary mine and in this post I have chosen two images that show the artist in context with the audience and the hall.
Next week starts with the “Despicable Me” premiere and finishes with a residency at The Albert Hall in my capacity of official photographer for the “Concert for Care“. If you have not brought tickets for this Or the screening, time is running out!
