Each New Year whilst most people are snuggled up with their loved ones a few brave souls who work in the AV/ production arena brave the cold night and huddle around screens to bring the festivities to life. This year I was working with an amazing team from across the country unique events, mcl, CT to name a few to do just that in the only place to be for New Year - Edinburgh!
I was vision mixing for one of the live stages and above is a pic of my view for the night!
Its not all bad though, I got to vision mix some amazing bands and reverend and the makers were AMAZING!
So its been a while... (I feel obliged to start each post like this!)
I thought it would be interesting to talk a bit about why I do what I do because exactly a year ago today I was in the North West of Australia filming chemical tank cleaning operations for an oil and gas service provider! - glamorous I know! Here's a pic to prove it! :
And then 5 years ago today I was shooting a commercial in New York (had to attach classic pic!) :
In-between these 2 incredibly different and yet strangely similar shoots I have had the honor of meeting and working with some of the most incredible people on earth. I've laughed until my sides have hurt, i've cried with friends at the horrors of what we are filming and I have been lucky enough to experience and see some of the most beautiful sites on earth.
I have been involved with over 2500 productions and along the way shot over 800,000 stills which take up ALOT of hard drive space!
I know a little about very very many things if you want …
So a couple of weeks ago I got the privilege to run some great photographers for the new festival in Dundee called Carnival 56 and this took quite alot of my time and so i didn't get to shoot as much as I would have liked to but I was lucky enough to be allowed on stage for Rudimentals headline set and I thought it would be a good time to crack out the hassy and here are some of the pics:
Its safe to say it was alot of fun using the hassy!!!!
