A Snapshot Of 2014: Music and Portraits and Things

Here we finally are, the last of my 2014 round-up blogs! Last year was pretty awesome. As well as somehow being allowed to plaster my photos all over Cecil Sharp House as part of my “Folktography” exhibition earlier this year, I got to photograph some absolutely incredible people in 2014. I almost definitely confused the local valley folk on more than one occasion, popped over to Belgium, lace-bombed a wood, hung squillions of playing cards from my ceiling, wore a tutu on my head for the sake of art and probably became incomprehensibly excited at the prospect of being allowed to take portrait photos at a beautiful stately home. I may have had more than a bit of mare attempting to decide which images to feature in this little selection. In fact, some of them may even get their own dedicated blogs later in the year so I feel marginally less torn about the whole kaboodle.

As well as doing lots of promotional work for creative people, I got to play around with some documentary and event photography for projects such as The Elizabethan Session, Made In The Great War, Folk By The Oak and The Battle Proms – all of which were far too brilliant (and extensive) to condense into this post and very definitely need their own blogs at some point. (In the meantime, if you like the sound of outdoor classical concerts avec cavalry, live cannon fire and spectacular fireworks, you can see a selection of my snaps from the Battle Proms right here!)

Now, without further ado, here’s what it all looked like. If you’d like to know more about each artist pictured, just click on the image to go to their website!

Alongside taking pictures, I also did a bit of album design work. Here are just a few of the lovely releases I had a hand in putting together this year:

All the very best to the lot of you,
