Another captivating event as part of the “In Other Words” festival was had at the Bridewell in Liverpool this evening. Facilitated by Writing on the Wall the authors gave some gripping insight into the hard-edged underworld of organised crime in Liverpool and neighbouring Amsterdam. Fascinating dialogue was shared in another engaging connection between panel and [...]

This time last year – The Giant Spectacular turned into a Sea Odyssey… some Photos from the Incredible Spectacle
This time last year I had just arrived back from a job for Conde Nast Traveller in Buenos Aires. I put jet-lag to one side and hit the streets of Liverpool to capture the final day of the Giant Spectacular/Sea Odyssey. And what an incredible day it was! Following and documenting these Giants was truly [...]
What a superb day at the races! The Aintree Grand National kicked off with blue sky and sunshine yesterday. Well turned-out Liverpudlians were out in force!

Flagship cruiseliner of the Cunard fleet – the Queen Mary 2 made her maiden voyage to Liverpool last year. I was invited on board by Cunard to photograph the interiors of the ship. Truly an iconic vessel it retains all the charm and elegance of ocean-liners from days gone by. I’m just double-checking with Cunard [...]
Au Revoir Giant Spectacular – it’s been a special weekend of photography. Here’s a couple of photos.
Stepping off the plane from Buenos Aires – I came into Giant Spectacular ‘fray’ late in the piece – there were already photos from every conceivable street angle posted on the net. Fantastic photography I might add – from local professional photographers, sight-seers… you name it! So it was nice to be able to hit [...]
16 hours from Buenos Aires and an extravagant wedding day of photography later I hit the streets this morning to see what the hype was all about… and yep, you guessed it… it certainly did not fail to impress… Liverpool streets once again came alive and embraced the spectacular… which is the Giants. I [...]
Was great to be back at the Wavertree Sports Park to take some photos of my old Waterpolo team – Liverpool City. They’d organised an international tournament with teams from all over Europe coming to Liverpool to “play ball.” It’s been a couple of years since I played and it was very cool to photograph [...]
I was lucky enough to be invited along to photograph Laura White‘s live show to celebrate the launch of her debut album “Lyrics in my Underwear” Set amongst the splendid grandeur of the Lowry Theatre – the show delivered on its promise. Laura White, a natural star in the making, sang songs from her debut [...]
Sue is a Beatles Fan. She travelled all the way from California for the John Lennon Candle Vigil in Liverpool
It’s a massive shame that her Liverpool cab-driver didn’t know where it was then! Hey-ho… I’d just finishing photographing the chilly outdoor vigil when I first saw Sue. I was with the ‘Creative Concern’ crew (a top draw Agency from over Manchester way) heading over to the Beatles Story for the second half of the [...]
What amazing news for the Liverpool Music scene with the re-opening of a classic theatre. It’s been renamed after the Beatle’s manager Brian Epstein. The venue will be operated by Liverpool Sound City, which will also use the venue to showcase pop culture in art and drama productions. I jumped on my bike and grabbed [...]
Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark play the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral – some photos from the concert
Topping off a spectacular Annual Dinner from the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce – Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark or quite simply “OMD” played the awe-inspiring Anglican Cathedral in Liverpool last Thursday night. A little bit before my time – I could still appreciate the resurrection of the classic 80′s tracks – played in an even [...]
X Factor Star Rebecca Ferguson sings in Liverpool on the eve of her album launch – some photos from last week’s event
As it’s been proven time after time – the best artist in the X-Factor competition doesn’t always win. One such artist – Rebecca Ferguson had a special homecoming gig in Liverpool One recently. She even spared time to have a cup of tea and a few photos with some fans nearby before the concert. Singing [...]
Was delighted to be invited to photograph the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner again for the third year running.

I had to remind myself that there were well turned-out Liverpool businesspeople in the frame also! The [...]
First the Beatles – then Gok Wan… some photos from the hysteria surrounding his recent visit to Liverpool One
As I arrived to shoot the Gok Wan fashion roadshow event – I wondered if i’ve mistakenly got the wrong event… Groups of screaming girls (and boys) crying helplessly at the thought of seeing their iconic fashion hero – Gok Wan. I have to admit I did actually ask some of the girls why they [...]
At the end of the day – this is what it all comes down to… You. The people. This was my third year as the official photographer of the Mathew Street Festival. Each year I try to capture something a little bit different. This year I was given a nice open brief – a “freedom [...]
The first morning of Mathew Street Festival had “positive impact” – some photos from a Motown tribute band.
Photo-wise – might as well start from the top! First band on the bill was Positive Impact. Quite possibly the perfect band for a festival like Mathew Street. Instantly bringing a soulful groove to the streets, they had the Liverpool crowd dancing away from the outset. Numerous incarnations of famous motown artists later, it turned [...]
Another year, another brilliant Mathew Street Festival – a quick photo whilst the rest are uploading!
This was one of the last shots taken today… Was definitely a good call of ‘Amy Winehouse’ to jump down and get intimate with the lovely Liverpool crowd! Got plenty of shots to go through from the past couple of days. Stay tuned – they shall be blogged very soon! Ant Clausen Liverpool Photography [...]
Was up nice and early to get some photos of the German Aida Blu cruise ship arriving into the Mersey on Saturday morning. There was a handful of avid “ship-spotters” lining the river waiting to catch a glimpse also. The one thing I wasn’t anticipating was the ship turning a full 180 degrees and reversing [...]
