Blythe Majors – O2 Academy Oxford 2011

BlytheMajorsOxford2011-038BWWhilst covering a couple of dates on the East 17 ‘Back to the Future’ tour I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing an emerging new talent, Blythe Majors

Hailing from Edinburgh, Blythe is a solo artist with an amazing talent for songwriting and performing. He has been working on his debut album over the past few months and is now recording the final tracks before adding the finishing touches. He never set out to be in the music industry but with some complimentary comments whilst singing along to songs with friends, he moved along the path to become a songwriter and has gained the acclaim of CBS television network who are looking to use his songs in some of their top shows.

Blythe has a clear passion for music which comes across in so many of the pictures, making him a great subject to shoot. I hope to be catching up with Blythe again soon in the recording studio.

Windfest 2011

Hey guys, it’s been a while! Sorry for the lack of updates of late, it’s been a busy summer! I headed down to Sandbanks again this year for Windfest which had another great turnout. Although it was due to rain, the sun decided to stay all day, much to everyone’s delight.

Windfest has an amazing assortment of sports from windsurfing and kite surfing to paddle boarding, beach volleyball and ultimate frisbee

The Animal Bike show as always was awesome Martyn Ashton and Blake Samson entertained the crowds with their amazing skills. They do shows all round the country so check them out next time they are in your area.

I feel my wakeboarding pictures have improved from the last time I photographed the sport. I was less fearful of getting close to the action, which I’m sure has helped me get much better images, though you do have to be fully aware of what’s going on around you not just what’s happening in front of you!

Congratulations to all of this year’s competition winners!

Here’s hoping the weather for next year event is as glorious as this year’s!

For now, stay tuned to see what else I’ve been up to over the last few months!
