All Star Fairport Convention

29th July 2009

I was lucky enough to get a couple of tickets and a photo pass for All Star Fairport Convention at the Barbican last Saturday night so Matt and I took off for the weekend to London.  It was a fantastic show and full of very special guests.  Aswell as the usual Fairport line up - past and present, we had the pleasure of hearing Chris While, Kellie While, Teddy Thompson, Kami Thompson & Linde Nijland.  I was able to snap away for the first three songs of each set at the back of the hall and then was restricted to shooting behind glass in a 'booth' for the rest of the gig.  It would have been great to have been able to get a bit closer to the action but I was still pleased with the images.  Here are some of my favourites.

You really do have the nack Kirstie. These are really good. I know you might think that I am slightly biased (true, obviously), but I would also want to be honest as otherwise what is the point of commenting at all? These photos are great and I am sure all the artists captured by these images would be equally pleased with the results. I hope they have the opportunity to see them and enjoy them too.

Thea Gilmore is an amazingly talented singer songwriter and I have been a big fan of her music for about 10 years. She has just launched a brand new subscription website called 'Angels in the Abattoir' so we stole a couple of hours one afternoon last week to take some shots for the new site.  For more details or to sign up click here

The Lens is great but its the eye behind it that is seeing these amazing shots. Well done K. x

Great photos - as always. I bet Thea was very pleased with them. As Julie said, its the eye behind the camera and the lens that counts. xx

Kirstie, these shots are great - they are the most natural pics of Thea I have seen ever I think. Nice one! Liz x
