The Auckland City Skyline - some photos from the other night...

When i'm not photographing portraits out here in New Zealand - i'm exploring the coastline, shooting sunrises with the Nikon D800. So far the camera has been performing flawlessly. The detail from the 36 megapixel sensor is quite incredible. I was interested to see how it would perform at night also with city lights and dark skies often pushing digital cameras to their limits. Once again it allowed me to capture detail I have never seen before. I don't think i've photographed any skylines of major cities round the world (yes you may argue that Auckland might not be the most major city) - where you can so clearly see the stars in the sky above.

Liverpool's Epstein Theatre to open as a live music venue - some PR photos from last week...

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 a few PR shots for the local press. The brief was "group shot, possibly Vanity Fair style" which always makes me laugh! But hey, I gave it a shot... with a group of 32 people from the music industry - was always going to be a challenge! If there were only 10 to 12 to photograph - it might just have worked. I also had to grab a couple of quick portraits of Dave Pichilingi, chief executive of Sound City and Wendy Simon - councillor of Liverpool. I then fired the shots straight off to the Liverpool press and they were in the paper the next day. I look forward to an exciting future ahead for the venue and Liverpool Music!

Liverpool City Mag - Macula Spectacular Photography on the cover

Earlier last month I was commissioned to photograph the cover for Liverpool City Mag. It was a unique opportunity to get down to the Macula Spectacular event before it all kicked off. The shots ended up being taken around 1am once they had all the projection artwork lined up on the Liver Building. Another advantage was I could get the guys to freeze the animation so I could get a nice long exposure at low ISO.liverpool city mag cover photography
