Sunday Summer Jam at LIMF

Another beautiful day in Sefton Park. I couldn’t pick a favourite moment. I really couldn’t. It’s part blur, part amazing. So much happened. What I clearly remember though is the setting. Sefton Park is simply beautiful and a great place to host all these stages […]

LIMF Summer Jam Saturday

The sun came out! Everyone was dancing, partying and the sun actually came out. I think I got sunburn. What a day. I think my highlight was Swindle on the International Emerging Artist Stage. A mix of DnB and jazz. Funky stuff. So many artists […]

LIMFestival with the Philharmonic and fireworks

LIMFestival returns this weekend with a cracking line up. The Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra along with Ian Broudie and the Lightning seeds will open the weekend on Friday. That in itself will be a mind blowing event. The weekend event has Shaggy. Shaggy! Nuff said. There’s […]

Liverpool Pride Portraits 2014

I honestly didn’t think I would have time to photograph anyone at this years Pride event. Luckily I noticed an empty couple of hours in my schedule and headed over. I’m so glad I found that time as I met some great people. My favourite […]

Giants in Liverpool – final day

I watched the final day from two vantage points. The first was just by Tesco. Nothing could have prepared me for it all though. When that parade came down the Strand I was almost moved to tears. After I got a few photos I dashed […]

The Giants return to Liverpool

They’re back! The Giants have returned to Liverpool. The Giants first came to Liverpool back in 2012 and it was the highlight of my career. Easily the most incredible event I’ve ever witnessed and photographed. Giants roaming the streets of not only the city centre […]

Celebrity Infinity in Liverpool with fireworks

The cruise ship Celebrity Infinity docked at the cruise terminal over the weekend so people could visit the Open in Hoylake. Storms were predicted and I secretly hoped for lightning during the firework display. A crazy idea in all honesty as it would have made […]

Dragon Harald Fairhair in Liverpool

Viking ship Dragon Harald Fairhair in Wirral

The largest Viking longship built in modern times arrived in Wirral yesterday. I’ve had a connection to Vikings ever since I was a kid. I grew up in Thingwall. As I’m sure you know *ahem* Thingwall comes from the phrase for Viking meeting place, þing […]

Constellations

This is *the* new place in the Baltic Triangle. It’s called Constellations and its got to be Liverpool’s first kert. If you don’t know a kert is a type of bar in Budapest. They’re also called ruinpubs as they’re based in run down sites between […]

Light Night Liverpool 2014

Liverpool Light Night was incredible

Liverpool Light Night returns! Once again the team puts on an epic show of music, art, culture, dance, and well everything we’re good at. It’s all packed into one night that can’t be contained. Dance spills out onto the streets. Music bounces from cathedral to cathedral. […]

Craig Charles at the Liverpool Waterfront

I loved the Craig Charles gig at the waterfront on Friday. Funk n soul isn’t my normal tipple of choice. By that I mean I’m happy to listen to it but I probably wouldn’t browse the artists on Spotify. That said I can’t deny the […]
