BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award 2012 Photographs

19th November 2011

I was very pleased to be asked again to photograph the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards Semi Final at the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal last month.  The evening was presented by Mike Harding and all ten acts nominated had to perform a 10 minute set to a packed audience and then judges had to choose four acts to go through to the final which will be part of the main BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in February 2012.  The four finalists  were Blair Dunlop, Graham MacKenzie, Sunjay Brayne & Ioscaid.  Good luck for the awards!

Dublin, St Patrick's Day 2009

23rd March 2009

My partner, Matt surprised me with a trip to Dublin for St Patrick's Day for a birthday treat. We had a great time doing all the tourist attractions – open top bus ride, Jameson's Old Distillery, Guiness Storehouse and a boat trip along the River Liffey and not forgetting the St Patrick's Day parade – We stood for hours waiting for the procession to arrive along with thousands of others all clad in green but it was worth the crowds and the waiting.  The Theme was “ The Sky's the Limit”  and the size of the structures in the procession, the energy of the performers and the bright vivid colours were great to photograph.
