The Return of Colmcille

On a stunning summers day in Early June I arrived in the beautiful city of Derry/Londonderry to work as the official photographer of The Return of Colmcille, a large-scale extravaganza taking place as part of the UK City of Culture festivities.  Produced by outdoor art experts Walk the Plank and written by Frank Cottrell Boyce, the writer of the Olympic opening ceremony, visitors could expect “storytelling on a grand scale, music, art, comedy, procession, performance and fireworks during this once in a lifetime weekend”.

…. Happy New Year!

Ok, so this isn’t the first post of the year but it the first post of NYE related photos.  Here’s a couple of my favourite pics from the 2012 new years eve parade in Newcastle, and one of the fireworks, because who doesn’t like fireworks?

Danza Cuba

Just a couple of weeks back I had the honour of being asked to photograph the world premiere of ‘Sombrisa” being performed by the amazing ‘Danza Contemporánea de Cuba’.  For those of you who missed it I hope the photos below give you a good idea of how stunning it was.

Enchanted Parks

Now in it’s 5th year, Enchanted Parks is an outdoor arts event held in Gatesheads’s Saltwell Park over 5 nights every December.  Produced by Newcastle Gateshead Initiative, it brings together not only fantastic regional artists and performers but, also gives emerging student talent from the universities a chance to shine (excuse the pun).
