Today is the last day to see and enjoy the Snowflake Trail in Liverpool...

It's not just incredibly gorgeous artistic pieces of snowflake glory... it's snowflake multimedia heaven too! It's that good that I took my 4 year old round - after downloading the iphone app - and making it all come to life!

If you get the chance - don't miss the opportunity to see this fantastic art installment in Liverpool City Centre. Here's some marketing photos I nabbed for Open Culture - the event organisers...

Expressions of a Princess... the day HRH Princess Anne visited the city of Liverpool

Another magical day of photography in Liverpool - with the christening of the new Atlantic Container Line vessel - Atlantic Sea. HRH Princess Anne made a special trip up for the event - and I had the pleasure of photographing her visit. I've photographed her on 3 other occasions, which in comparison were rather hurried affairs. This day there was plenty of time for her to relax and enjoy the wonderful hospitality that Liverpool brings! As you can see from her many different expressions - she had a fantastic day!

Ben Fogle tells his incredible tales in the Anglican Cathedral Liverpool

One of my favourite venues on the planet - the Liverpool Cathedral. I first spotted Ben Fogle early in the evening looking a little lost. It was the first time he'd been in the cathedral and was in awe of the sheer size of it. He wandered over in the near darkness and asked me if I knew where the client was. So we wandered through the incredible structure to the ornate Lady Chapel where guests were arriving. Lovely guy, totally chilled and just how I expected him to be. It never ceases to amaze me just how many British people have never heard of, let alone set foot in, the Liverpool Cathedral. Here's a few photos from the evening.

Fantastic day's photography today in Liverpool for the Sky Ride cycle round the city

The first thing I did before the Liverpool Sky Ride was look up to the sky. And all I saw was dark grey ominous clouds. But the sky soon cleared and the green leafy streets of south Liverpool were transformed into a sea of high-vis cycling vests cruising their way into the city of Liverpool. I jumped on my own bike and captured some of the action. Here's a few photos below:

Queen Elizabeth visits Liverpool - and being her official photographer...

There a few things in life you have to pinch yourself to make sure it's actually happening and real. This was one of them. Was very honoured and privileged to be the official photographer at the Liverpool Town Hall when Her Majesty the Queen visited Liverpool recently. The city of Liverpool also presented her with some of my photography as a gift. Pretty surreal stuff!

An 'Azamazing' Evening - some photos from the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral...

With the last major Cruise Ship of the season in Liverpool, the Azamara - the stage was set for an amazing event before she departed. Passengers from the ship were treated to some incredible performances in the grandest of venues. Once again the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral turned it on with atmosphere a-plenty. Local opera singer Danielle Thomas gave an incredible performance. Her voice resonating gracefully through the hallowed grandeur of the largest cathedral in the UK. Following on from Danielle the Cavern Club Beatles gave a rocking perfomance - much to the delight of the mostly American audience.

Again, feeling privileged - I had the honour of photographing in this amazing space. I really don't think I could ever tire of 'working' in this incredible cathedral.

Special mention must also go to Adlib who set up a stunning lighting display and also the staff from the Liverpool Cruise Terminal and the Anglican Cathedral.

Awesome effort everyone!

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...

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. photo of queen elizabeth cunard in liverpool 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

dj luciano cadenza photos from st georges hall 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!

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

photo of jack savoretti in liverpool photo of jack savoretti base player 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.
