Better late than never….

…. 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).

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.

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.

I think the shots are fairly self-explanatory.
