Stairway to the basement – St. Georges Hall Liverpool.

photo of saint georges hall liverpool

Spent an amazing morning taking photographs of the interior of St. Georges Hall Liverpool. This original stairway caught my eye as I made my way into the Catacombs (which have not been seen by public for 160 years).

This fascinating aspect of St Georges Hall will once again be used for different events throughout 2014. Definitely worth a look!

The Charlatans play the Great Hall. Some photos from their gig in St Georges Hall, Liverpool.

What an amazing night. After originally billed to play as part of the Liverpool International Music Festival – tragedy struck as the Charlatan’s drummer Jon Brookes suddenly passed away. A testament to their sheer resilience and professionalism as a band – they re-grouped, re-scheduled and another date was locked in the diary. Thankfully I would be in the country to photograph them this time also.

Arriving early I had the chance to capture the superb Tea Street Band. Keep an eye out for these guys – with their debut album due out shortly. Next into the majestic Great Hall steps the Charlatans. They soon had the parka-clad crowd hopping to their captivating early 90′s blend of Indie rock and roll. And the Liverpool crowd didn’t stop hopping for the next hour and a half…

Here’s some photos from the show…

Queen Elizabeth sails into Liverpool for the day…

Was so nice to be in and around the Liverpool Cruise Terminal today capturing the Queen Elizabeth as she gracefully sailed up the Mersey this morning.
It was not the hot, sunny weather we’ve been accustomed to – more of a “black and white” day.
Here’s the first shot of her as she berthed.

I also jumped on board the Search and Rescue boat for some photos this afternoon.
Will post a few very shortly.

DJ Luciano rocks the St Georges Hall – some photos from Saturday night in Liverpool

Usually reserved for lavish banquets, corporate functions etc… the St. George’s Great Hall was somewhat transformed Saturday night in Liverpool. Swiss DJ Luciano flew into town and had the place thumping within seconds. Hundreds of hardcore Liverpool clubbers were out in force and paying their respects to the world-renowned DJ.
Put on by Freeze – it was also a fund-raising event for Claire House.

Was a great opportunity to grab a few photos of St Georges Hall – as it’s never been seen before…

The Liverpool Post Business Awards and City Halls Photography

photos of st. georges hall liverpool daily post business awards 2013

Always a pleasure to be photographing inside the majestic St Georges Hall, Liverpool. It was my first official job after winning the tender for Liverpool City Halls photography. Was delighted to be selected to cover such incredible venues such as the Liverpool Town Hall and St Georges Hall. It’s the first official tender i’ve applied for – (usually too busy or too lazy!) so was great to have been chosen!

Such an amazing venue for events. Was great to be able to have a quick listen to Julie Meyer – and to photograph some of Liverpool’s finest…

 

I’ll be covering all sorts of events in the next year or so and capturing the essence of each of these amazing venues. They truly are “jewels in the Liverpool crown” and I look forward to helping the world find out about them!

The Christians – some photos from their recent Liverpool Waterfront concert…

Legendary Liverpool band The Christians played a fantastic gig on the weekend as part of the “On The Waterfront” festival.
Garry Christian was on fine form and rocked the Liverpool crowd. He mentioned he was late for a gig in Southport – but still managed to spend some time with the crowd and pose for a few photos.

Jack Savoretti (and cool looking Bass Player)… Some photos from last night’s On The Waterfront Concert in Liverpool

These guys would have to be the “unexpected/delight/discovery” for me last night. I think Jack has been in town before – but this was the first time I heard him play. It was almost textbook. The sun was getting low in the sky. Warm, long shadows were cast across the waterfront. We just needed some nice chilled rock and roll with a country twang to complement the moment. Step in Jack Savoretti. And his very cool looking Bass player.
Toes were tapping, crowds were smiling… the rest was history.

Since writing this blog i’ve now downloaded his latest record: Before the Storm.
If there’s another warm balmy afternoon in the country this year – I suggest you download, listen and ‘while away’ said afternoon. Even if there’s not – download and listen anyway. It’s very cool.

Was so nice to photograph Katie Melua playing live last night as part of the Music On The Waterfront concert series in Liverpool. With the Three Graces and new Pier Head buildings as a backdrop – it was a stunning location to start off her summer of touring. With tens of thousands of Liverpudlians out to enjoy the sounds – it was an amazing night to photograph.

Music On The Waterfront – Liverpool. Some photos from a spectacular evening event…

The Liverpool Waterfront. It has to be one of the most spectacular settings for an event anywhere in the world. A stage, set in the middle of the Three Graces, overlooking the Mersey River as the sun sets. Makes for a magical event, and makes photography all the more easier!
Here’s some shots from last night:
