Rival Sons - Cambridge Junction, Feb 1st 2017
I won't post a review as such here, as it's Sunday, and I've got shit to do (keep an eye on Roomthirteen.com, as I may post one there), I'll just break up the photos with a bit of text about how great Rival Sons are live (if you didn't know that already).
And finally, Todd Ögren-Brooks, sports one of the most impressive beards ever, and manages to fill the songs with keyboard-y goodness.
Well, it's that time again; after going into my usual semi-hibernation over Christmas & New Year, I now feel all invigorated, full of something approaching enthusiasm and ready to give my photography business a bit of TLC. I'm ashamed to admit I lost a bit of focus last year, and coasted along without putting much effort into my work (sounds like my old school reports!). This year, after giving myself a much needed kick up the arse, I am attempting to rectify last year's lackadaisical attitude, starting with a new logo (as well as photo books, prints, canvases and other cool stuff).
I've muddled through using my own poor attempts at logo designs for ages now, despite wanting a professionally designed logo since I started. I know a lot of people fail to see the value of using a proper, trained graphic designer and would rather knock up something themselves, but I'm not one of them. I admire good design as much as I admire good photography. And I know my limitations. So why have I waited so long? Basically, I wanted to wait for a designer I had faith in, and I ended up waiting a while!
I've been working with the super-talented Jess at Noxx Creative (www.noxxcreative.co.uk) since last year, and after seeing the quality of her work I knew that if anyone could come up with a logo design I liked it'd be her. She also has great taste in music, which may not be a prerequisite, but is certainly a bonus! The whole process of getting Jess to design my logo has been completely stress-free, and I'm super pleased with the result. I can't recommend her highly enough for any design work, whether it be a logo, marketing materials or even a magazine layout.
Jess can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
So without further ado, here's my new logo...
And business cards...
Ok, I'm officially rubbish at blogging regularly - I can't believe my last post was all the way back in January - shameful!
Anyway, that's my news. I'll probably update again in 2016, so I hope you have an awesome Christmas/Thanksgiving/New Year etc!
Savage Messiah - Norwich Waterfront, Jan 21st 2015
Savage Messiah: To me the name screams sweaty, no-nonsense metal/thrash with an 80s retro feel (truth be told, I was probably just reminded of actual 80s band Nasty Savage, but still...) The band certainly look the part; leather jacketed and wearing sweatbands and bullet belts, and there's a definite musical nod to the old school.
They may have been first on the bill, but Savage Messiah certainly had confidence and competence enough to get most of the crowd involved, and warmed up ready for Huntress and Amon Amarth.
Huntress - Norwich Waterfront Jan 21st 2014
Janus’s image may well be deliberately provocative, but Huntress put on a hell of a live show, and Jill’s theatrical, over-the-top performance works well, as well as making them great fun to photograph. She also has a hell of a voice.
