Hi-Lights at Lumiere

Durham’s ‘Lumiere’ festival of light returned again this November and was even bigger and brighter than before.  Part of this was due to the hard work and skills of the folks at Hi-Lights who provided much of the equipment and technical knowledge to the artists involved.

Here’s a sample of some of the images I captured of their involvement this year.

Illuminating Hadrian’s Wall

Saturday 13th March saw a line a burning torches stretching the width of the country along the route of Hadrian’a wall.  I was commissioned by Newcastle Gateshead Initiative to capture this unique event along the Newcastle Quayside.

Shine 2010

As a part of ‘SHINE 2010: Urban Garden festival’ Sunderland’s Winter Gardens was open after dark for a week of dazzling light and sound shows for visitors to experience.

Here’s a few of the pictures I took for the guys who installed the lighting, smoke machines, etc.

Lumiere Festival

Lumiere was a 4 day festival of illuminations and installations held in the beautiful city of Durham in November.  I was lucky enough to be asked to photograph the festival for one of my clients who were involved with several of the installations.  It was great to have access all areas with my camera at a stunning event I would have attended as a member of the public had I not been working anyway.

Evolution 09

I’m a massive music fan and therefore when the opportunity to photograph the North East’s biggest music festival arose for Newcastle Gateshead Initiative I was really excited.  It was a fantastic weekend with great bands, fantastic weather and some really nice people.

Outdoor & Active campaign

Many of you who live in the North East will probably recognise the set of shots that I took for Newcastle Gateshead Initiative for their ‘Outdoor and Active’ campaign encouraging people to go and do just that.
