Paloma Faith – MasterCard Priceless
MasterCard presented Paloma Faith for the fourth Priceless event at the Savoy Ballroom in London 26/08/15. Guests were provided with free nibbles and drinks whilst the incredibly quick witted Paloma entertained the crowd with a varied set of old classics and some of her own amazing tracks. I have to say that in 25 years of shooting gigs this really was one of the best gigs I’ve ever been too mainly due to the intimate vibe but not taking anything away from Paloma who was truly amazing.

Wow March Already!
The past 4 weeks have been mental. Due to non disclosure agreements I can’t even tell you the highlight of the last few weeks but it I will soon. In short, I shot interiors for James Wallis in Beaconsfield, Gruff Rhys at Koko, I directed and shot a viral ad for Gumtree, more watch videos for Christopher Ward, shot the Hidden Charms supporting the Mavericks at the Eventim Apollo, a press shoot for Ballin’ Jacks, The Brits after show for Sony Music at the incredible Samba Sushi, and finally the Sony Music International Directors meeting including signings with Paul kalkbrenner and an album playback tonight with Miguel.
Fink – Koko, London
Fink returned to London in November 2014 and performed a sell out gig and blessed fans with new tracks from their latest album Hard Believer as well as old tracks from their catalogue. It was an awesome gig in such an awesome venue and has to be one of my highlights of 2014.

Hidden Charms at The Macbeth
One of the best bands I’ve worked with in years! The Hidden Charms performing at The Macbeth pub in London 03/10/14. Its all happening for these boys right now having just finished a UK tour with XFM’s This Feeling and features in Tatler and Loaded magazine. They’re set to fly back to L.A next month to record their next single with legendary producer Shel Talmy who worked with The Who and The Kinks back in the 70’s.

The Session 58 Collective
The Session 58 Collective hosted a brilliant night of raw music talent at the prestigious Jazz Cafe venue in Camden, London last night. The fabulous Ilana Lorraine and brilliant Nate James introduced some outstanding talent including Dawson, Josh Kyeot, Miss Baby Sol, Alex Vargas and Ruth Royall. Who needs mundane TV talent shows when you can absorb a night of pure talent just down the road.

Julio Iglesias at the Royal Albert Hall
The legend that is Julio Iglesias came to London this week to perform a one off show at the Royal Albert Hall and receive a life time achievement award from Sony Music for record sales of more than 300 million. 12/05/14. Unfortunately, us photographers were forced to the back of the venue so my 200mm with 2 x adaptor was not ideal. Photo by Chris Lopez Copyright Chris Lopez
