Photographing The Jive Aces



This past week I had the excellent pleasure of photographing the UK’s greatest swing bands, The Jive Aces. Some of you may of seen them on Britain’s Got Talent earlier this year.

It was a long day… we had to fit all of them on a stage and their equipment, something I’ve never done before, shooting such a large studio image. But I think the results speak for themselves.

The editing of the below images was done by a member of the band and he did a fantastic job extracting them from a white background.

Thanks to everyone for including me and I hope you love your images!

Band Photo Shoot in Forest Row



This weekend, my good friend and fellow professional photographer, Sam Wordie, invited me along to her photo shoot in Forest Row, East Sussex. She said she was photographing a band and not having that in my portfolio I jumped at the chance.

The day went brilliantly. The folks over at The Swan in Forest Row lent us the use of the pub for a bit, while we did our shoot and I’m very thankful that they did. The shots of the band in the giant fireplace are my favorite and we never would of pulled that off had they not let us take over the joint for a bit. So thanks guys!
