Ashtray Electric are recording their new album Measured in Falls with Darryl Torr of Openroom Productions. I was lucky enough to shoot a few photos while the guys were up in Johannesburg recording the drums and bass. These are a few photos from one of the days. The little bit that I heard sounds amazing, think its going to be one of the first albums I buy next year. Onward to the photos…
One of my favourite bands, Zebra & Giraffe, released their second album The Inside last week and played the first of their launch shows last Friday at the Alexander Theatre in Johannesburg. The guys invested a lot of time and money and put on a really good show. The lighting was amazing but pretty difficult to shoot in, other gig organisers could learn a thing or two from Zebra & Giraffe. Normally I only post few of the shots from […]
The super talented guys from Zebra & Giraffe are busy recording their second album and I was lucky enough to join them during a few of their recording sessions at Darryl Torr’s Openroom Studios. Their first album, Collected Memories, is one of my favourite records so I am super excited to get my hands on this album once it is released in a few months. Based on the few tracks I’ve heard while shooting the guys in studio I can […]
I shot a few portraits with the guys from Dead Alphabet recently. They’re a super bunch of guys and I really love their music. Check ’em out at their webspace.
In the last few years of shooting I have somehow managed not to see a single Flash Republic show(not sure how that happened). I finally got to see them at the MNET New Year’s recording… and they’re one of the best live shows l’ve seen. I was there to shoot Zebra and Giraffe(post below) and was not really interested in shooting any of the other bands… anyway… I shot some of the Flash Republic performance and now I can’t wait […]
Not much to say here except that these guys rock, oh, and it was fun shooting in the rain.
10.28.09 Last week Friday I spent the day at WITS with my friends from Dear Reader. They were playing their final show for the year, this after a insane touring schedule which took them all over Europe. I got there at about twelve and basically just tried to shoot the day in a documentary kinda way. When processing I decided to go with a high contrast black and white look… The show was fantastic, I didn’t get that many shots […]
Spoke to a friend on mine today and he suggested that I post a few in a series, so these two go with the previous post. Very little post processing on the second one, just a curves adjustment… the auto-focus on my lens jammed and that was the result. Listen to Off He Goes by Pearl Jam whilst looking at the first one. Been listening to a fair bit of Pearl Jam’s No Code record, reminds me of growing up and the people […]
