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 memorable, but perhaps more so was the faces of the people who lined the streets. Liverpdulians have a reputation for embracing events like these and this was no different. Anyway, enough rambling - here's some photos! photos of liverpool sea odyssey giant spectacular photos of liverpool sea odyssey giant spectacular photos of liverpool sea odyssey giant spectacular photos of liverpool sea odyssey giant spectacular photos of liverpool sea odyssey giant spectacular photos of liverpool sea odyssey giant spectacular photos of liverpool sea odyssey giant spectacular photos of liverpool sea odyssey giant spectacular photos of liverpool sea odyssey giant spectacular photos of liverpool sea odyssey giant spectacular photos of liverpool sea odyssey giant spectacular photos of liverpool sea odyssey giant spectacular photos of liverpool sea odyssey giant spectacular photos of liverpool sea odyssey giant spectacular photos of liverpool sea odyssey giant spectacular photos of liverpool sea odyssey giant spectacular photos of liverpool sea odyssey giant spectacular photos of liverpool sea odyssey giant spectacular photos of liverpool sea odyssey giant spectacular photos of liverpool sea odyssey giant spectacular photos of liverpool sea odyssey giant spectacular

Au Revoir Giant Spectacular - it's been a special weekend of photography. Here's a couple of photos.

Fantastic photography I might add - from local professional photographers, sight-seers... you name it!

So it was nice to be able to hit the Mersey today to bag a few shots as the Giant Spectacular sailed gracefully out of town into the Waterloo sunset (well almost...)

In all - It's been an incredible past couple of days and a real testament to the people of Liverpool for making it happen. These events take months of planning and massive amounts of investment. But when you see the streets lined with excited smiling faces, it all becomes worthwhile.

Liverpool, I salute you.

The Little Girl is Taking a Chill Pill... a photo from the Giant Spectacular - Liverpool

  photo of giant spectacular liverpool

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 raced around armed with a healthy dose of caffeine to stave off any would be jetlag suitors...

But racing round for a Giant girl also takes it's toll... she's now sleeping at Pier Head with her humble companion... the cute but feisty dog...

Only thing left to say really is (if you haven't already) LIVERPOOL - GO HAVE A WEE LOOK!

 

 

 

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

Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra - some photos from last night's Beatles tribute at Reflection on the Waterfront

I love my job. Simple as that. Getting to photograph the Liverpool Philharmonic in such a splendid setting really is an honour. To have them covering Beatles tunes in their own style is truly something to behold.

Having legendary conductor and composer Carl Davis, baton in hand, might just be the icing on the cake.

Here's some photos from last night's Reflection on the Waterfront penultimate event.

As the event winds down with the final show tonight - it will no doubt be hailed as a massive success and a testament to Liverpool City for investing so much time and money bringing these fantastic events to life.

Next week the summer event timetable continues with another mind-blowing concept - "A real life disaster movie performed live in the night sky!"

Unfortunately i'll be on the south coast for a big event down there - I look forward to seeing the photos!

A very quick photo-driven blog post from the amazing Reflection on the Waterfront opening night in Liverpool. Have had numerous people asking me today how it was - so here it is! A fantastic blues set from Connie Lush got the night off to a cracking start. People poured in from all over the Northwest for the Macula Spectacular and it was great to photograph it with the atmosphere of hundreds of people in front of the lens...

Am currently editing a lifestyle shoot today - then it's back off again tonight to photograph the Liverpool Philharmonic orchestra performing on the waterfront. Gonna be another brilliant night - get down there y'all!

Getting to take photos of the lads getting the Macula Spectacular ready was a fantastic night (middle of the night mind)... and they started with a few of their own ghoulish images being projected onto the Liver Building... everything around, dark, quiet... gave an eerie feeling to the whole scenario. Contrasting that with tonight - the opening night of the "On the Waterfront Liverpool" event - it's sure to be buzzing! Get down there from 10:15 onwards to check out the Liver Building like you've never seen her before!

Commissioned by a Liverpool magazine I was lucky enough to capture a sneak preview with some photos of the "Macula Spectacular" last night. Dramatic 3D animations are being projected onto the walls of the Liver Building and the new Museum of Liverpool - telling the intriguing story of the history of Liverpool. This technical wizardry comes to Liverpool all the way from the Czech Republic and will be on show officially Friday night 10:30pm. I definitely recommend you go down and check it out!
