Liverpool Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner - some photos from another spectacular occasion

Was delighted to be invited to photograph the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner again for the third year running. The return to the spectacular Anglican Cathedral made my job a lot easier with such a stunning backdrop. I had to remind myself that there were well turned-out Liverpool businesspeople in the frame also! The introductory speech was from the Earl of Derby, followed by Chamber chairman Jack Stopforth. The key note speaker was Charlotte Hogg - head of retail division - Santander. As a sponsor of formula one racing - I soon worked out why there was a Formula One racing car in the nave of the church! They all had positive messages for the future of Liverpool and the Northwest. The evening was bought to a close nicely with 80's group Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark. Anyway - enough banter - here's some photos from the night...

The People of Mathew Street Festival 2011 - some photos of the festival goers...

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 to roam" if you will. Previous years I have been given long lists of bands that need to be ticked off and i've found myself racing between stages and focusing mostly on the acts themselves. This year I had more of a chance to stop and look around me. The amount of people who make a big effort is astounding. People getting dressed up in all sorts of fancy garb - reminds me of the heady days of Big Day Out's in New Zealand. It was always a time to grab the face paint and don a whig! But Liverpudlians are unique in their own right. They're a special bunch, these Scousers - and this selection of photos goes out to you! the people of mathew street festival Liverpool 2011

Oh, also - the ladies in the ambulance outfits dancing... they are, um, actual paramedics! Rock on ladies...

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 into a mass sing-a-long. Very cool to see!Oh, and last shot - if a little random - I spotted Alice Cooper on the way to the next stage. You just gotta love this festival. More photos to come...
