Pineapple express

Catching up on past events, for all you poor suckers who missed out on the wonder-night that was LeithLate2012, come hop on board the pineapple express on a tour of Leith Walk ( no bumbling Seth Rogen thankfully )

LeithLate is an arts and culture event that takes place in the best place in Edinburgh at the best time of day. Its in the name. Bars, cafes, tailors, barbers, shops, studios, galleries and community centers all hold their doors open into the evening and host individual exhibitions that showcase the work of local artists across multiple art formats. It is a veritable treasure map of an evening with sculpture, photography, design, cinema but most importantly, music. There are sets of local musicians playing the length of the walk in so many venues to soundtrack the proceedings.

I was delighted to be able to return to photograph Leithlate again this year as well as hold my own exhibition,    f e e t  u pwith its mystifying (but fully formed) Hawaiian theme. Busy night for me then. You can see a full gallery of the night here. Below is the  f e e t  u p  pineapple tour as well as the full video tour, in which I merged every single photo from the night (even the wonky ones) into a wickedly fun animation. 

Enjoy, count my cameos and try to imagine it's summer.

Follow The Runner

Welcome to T in the Park!

Still reeling from two mega hectic weeks working for the EIFF, I was very fortunate to be asked by The Skinny to cover last weekends notorious, heady musical extravaganza. The following deluge of imagery represents the experience best. As a photographer, a music festival is one great stampede from stage to stage without pause. Me and Emily were part of the great three day media convoy that crossed the arena from gig to gig literally soaking, and I include every liquid you can imagine, it up. We saw everything, and what a bounty of footage I have at the end. Be sure to check out The Skinny's online T gallery and be patient for next month's issue to get the full rundown and reviews of the event in full.

The T is a festival on the largest scale. It boasts a line up that is impossible to see all of, even for a team of 4. All I can offer is a sweet scented sample of what is only a pungent celebration of bassey, messy, debaucherous abandon on a national level. Total sensation overload, photographing T in the Park is one seamless onslaught from Friday to Sunday. All my festival highlights are tied to my pictures, so get ready for the motherload. I would love to hear your favorite experiences and music from the weekend and see if my images have done it justice. Please, light up the comments section below.
