Gianni Russo plays Static Gallery Liverpool – One Night Only.

To have a legendary Hollywood actor from The Godfather come to Liverpool is amazing. To have him perform under the same roof as where you work is simply unreal!

As I was finishing up some editing from the aerial photography earlier in the day – Gianni Russo was warming up. He was still getting to know the musicians that were banded together from across Europe.

They rehearsed, they jammed, they joked. This was going to be a good night.

I went down and introduced myself. What a guy!

I asked if I could take a few snaps of him outside Static on Roscoe Lane. It’s a typical little Liverpool lane that I thought might be an interesting juxtaposition with his yellow pants. He was obliging as ever and happy to be photographed wherever.

The rest of the night as they say, is history…

Esco Williams, Lee Fields, Smoove Turrell and DJ Craig Charles were just some of the amazing acts gracing the waterfront stage in Liverpool this evening. And a little rain certainly didn’t scare away the passionate Liverpool crowd.

Here’s a selection of photos from tonight’s event.

Stairway to the basement – St. 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

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.
