Skyline Series - Future Islands

Sometimes you get a call about being booked for a band you don't know too much about - this was the case with Future Islands, I tried listening to them but couldn't really get in to it either. Still, it was a new venue for me - a recently refurbished Ashton Gate, home to the red side of Bristol's footballing interests. It was to be held indoors, in the concourse to be more precise, so it was a slightly odd place to shoot met with various challenges along the way.

The Skyline Series is a run of shows across the summer months put on by MJR Group bringing some great acts to Bristol - originally planned to be hosted at St Philips Gate, a new venue to the south of the city. Hold ups with the development of the venue meant that the shows have been spread out across the city, some here at Ashton Gate and others including the Harbourside Amphitheatre.

The show was littered with trademark dance moves from frontman Samuel T Herring, inlcuding some pretty hard slaps to his own head (which I must say I wasn't expecting).

Steve, Al and Ash eagerly await the doors to be opened.

Thanks for stopping by, Will

Hopefully everyone has been enjoying this heatwave, personally, I love it! It's been a little while since my last post, in fact it was just before we jetted off to Portugal for a working holiday. We had a really great shooting out at the Cosyfeet factories, which is in a small town called Lousada about an hour from Porto.

The factory also run their own brand called Portside - the factory is incredibly organised and impeccably clean, we had a great few days there and we were most welcome, even though we were disrupting production to some extent. I've been working through a mountain of images and footage over the last week or so since our return and it's all coming together nicely.

In other news, I've been working quietly on a new project for an international brand which started a few months back, although I can't really say too much about it - it's really great to be involved and am really enjoying working on it.

Gig-wise, everything is now confirmed for my 6th(?) - it may be the 5th... Looe Music Festival in September, which is always a great weekend - lets hope the great weather keeps up! I'm also confirmed for MJR's Bristol Skyline Series with Future Islands in a couple of weeks and there's a local show I've applied for which would be amazing to get, although the line-up hasn't been confirmed as yet - I want it to happen!

I still hope to have some news about another new venture pretty soon, I think this one could be a slow burner though - I'll keep you updated!
