ProgDreams 2012

Airbag

After a hectic day at ROCKITtervoort 2012, we slept in and missed breakfast. Luckily our friend Martin from de Boerderij drove us to Scheveningen, a name which only Dutch people can pronounce, where we had pancakes for brunch. This set us up nicely for a international day of Prog at de Boerderij, recently voted 3rd best UK prog venue in Prog Magazine, beating the Royal Albert Hall. I have to say this is the best venue I have been to. The people are all very friendly and it has become a place to visit in itself, regardless of which bands are playing. Quantum Fantay opened ProgDreams 2012.

Konchordat at the Peel

Konchordat

Konchordat had hired me to shoot their first live gig. Since their debut album "The New Crusade" has been on heavy rotation I was really looking forward to this shoot.

Oh how I suffer for my art.

Tinyfish at Kew Gardens

Tinyfish

My first official shoot as bandshoot.co.uk featured my good friends Tinyfish. The main purpose of the shoot was to introduce their "new" drummer, Leon Camfield. I was very impressed by Kew Gardens and could have spent hours just walking around taking photos of the amazing landscape and flora. You can see more of the photos I took over at the Tinyfish website.
