Paul Weller Concert Photography 2019

Thetford High Lodge Concerts

Concert Photography. Paul Weller performs at High Lodge 2019

2019 marks our six year anniversary shooting Concert Photography for the national and International Press. In 2013, as a huge fan of Paul Weller, I’d almost begged my very good friend and then Picture Editor of Norwich’s Archant Newspaper, Steve Adams, if he would let me shoot the concert. He agreed and so began an affinity of Music Photography that would forever fuel the need to photograph Concert Photography. I’d been operating as a part time photographer and full time Police Sergeant, but the opportunity to combine creative imagery of The Modfather, one of the most influential and legendary British Music Artists of all time, was amazing.

Fast forward to Concert Photography 2019

I already look back on what is a wonderful career shooting music and a Concert Photography. My portfolio ranges from Robbie Williams, Tom Jones, Muse, Taylor Swift and Coldplay to name just a handful of successful artists. I grew up listening to P{aul Weller and there;’s something particularly special about photographing your music heroes. Particulary, when they are playing a real forest. For the sixth consecutive year I was assigned the humbling role as the official Photographer for Forestry England.

 Paul Weller stepped out onto the stage at Thetford High Lodge Friday night at High Lodge in front of 9000 fans on a beautiful midsummer’s night.Weller repaid the loyalty with a gig out of the very top drawer. He and every member of his band were simply magnificent. With a career spanning 42 years, his voice remains amazingly powerful and untainted. Concert Photography at at a Paul Weller concert ids always an enjoyable experience, with great lighting from the first song and Weller took fans on a journey through his years of producing a wide range of superb music from Strange Museum off his first solo album to What You Give Is What You Get, Move On Up and That’s Entertainment from his Jam days.

No Weller Gig would be complete without his guitarist of choice, Steve Cradock. A former member of the rock band Ocean Colour Scene who also plays bass, drums, and keyboards, Steve Cradock has toured with Paul Weller for what seems to have been a lifetime. Cradock joined Weller’s band in 1992, having supported him with Ocean Colour Scene. Cradock has appeared on all studio albums by Weller, playing the guitar and other instruments.

The crowd was treated to an excellent support act set by Stone Foundation. The R&B band is touring the summer outdoor series with Weller and recorded their latest album in his studio, and he has appeared on several of their tracks. There are clear influences from Weller – especially from his Style Council days – in Stone Foundation’s material and will be well worth seeing when they come to Norwich’s Waterfront in November.

Business Stock Photography

Bespoke Stock Photography Norfolk

STOCK PHOTOGRAPHY HAS A PLACE IN YOUR BUSINESS

BUT IS THERE’S ANYTHING QUITE LIKE BESPOKE STOCK PHOTOGRAPHY?

Trawl the internet for Business Stock Photography and there are literally hundreds of stock image libraries and hundreds of thousands of images that can be purchased for your business needs. So what it’s it that we all go on websites and find the same images over and over again. Stock Photography range from completely free photos, all the way through to renowned high-end providers. The problem is that purchasing Business Stock Photography is exactly that, It’s Stock Photography and everybody and their brother or sister is likely to also have it on their websites or Promotional material. To put things into perspective, Eight months ago I submitted the following generic image that I had taken, onto a completely Free Stock Image Platform to see what kind of response I would receive offering the image in a Free Business Stock Photography format. I have to say the results were pretty staggering.

Business Stock Photography

The image has received almost ONE MILLION VIEWS and has been downloaded over 6000 times by people. That’s 6000 potential brochures, webpages, blogs or other digital or printed media platform usage. From a photographers perspective, it’s absolutely great that people think the image is creative enough that they want to download it, but it also demonstrates why individuality in business is so essential when producing marketing and PR material. We already know just how important visuals are to people, so why take your most powerful medium of speaking to people and make it generic? Using stock photos misrepresents what your company stands for and lacks originality every time. If a client sees an image on two or more different websites, the meaning behind the photo becomes redundant, as it creates inconsistency in the photos. How many times do you see Shiny offices with sleek interior design, professional Armani Clad staff portrayed on Stock images only to walk into your client and find an untidy, dark office space with dishevelled, tired looking staff. Stock Photography can be a huge “smoke and mirror’ area for your business. We already know just how important visuals are to people, so why take your most powerful medium of speaking to people and make it generic? Using stock photos misrepresents what your company stands for and lacks originality every time.

So how can a businesses be seen as individual when we use stock images? It can’t! And stock images at the higher end can cost a serious amount of money when compared with creating affordable bespoke Stock Photography for your own business. For example, we worked with a client to produce a set of food based images for an advertising campaign. They had looked at purchasing images for their brochures. A set of three, high resolution Business Stock Photography images showcasing Food Products, with limited time usage, would cost around £1000. For the same cost, we were able to offer a comprehensive pre-shot consultation, on-site photography for a full day and deliver a set of 30 high quality Bespoke Business Stock Photography that can be used across the business without the fear of re-licensing or anybody else using the images for campaigns. The power of bespoke stock imagery simply can’t be under-estimated. It really is so valuable. We all live in a world where the high-resolution phone camera has become part of everyday life. I agree with many people thats smart phones and the editing software that come with them can take amazing photographs. The truth though, it that the parameters of an experienced professional photographer combined with a professional camera and post shoot editing will out way smart phone photography every single time.

Norwich City Football Team Open Training Session

Norwich City Football Team Hold Open Training Session.

Norwich City Football Team held a very special Event with a chance for Norwich City supporters to get a good look at Daniel Farke’s 2019 squad at Carrow Road. As Premier League preparations picked up pace over 500 Canaries fans attended an open day, watching the Championship winners go through their training routines in the sunshine, despite a few rumbles of thunder rolling around the summer skies. Norwich City Football Team were getting ready for their fifth pre-season friendly, away to Championship new boys Luton at Kenilworth Road on Saturday There were encouraging signs for star striker Teemu Pukki, who took part despite being rested for Wednesday’s 3-1 defeat to Brentford at Colney with a slight toe issue. New boys Patrick Roberts and Ralf Fahrmann were among the players on show, with some supporters taking the chance to get selfies and autographs with the players.

The Club’s preparations for the new season began with the  City touring of Germany between July 12-20. Daniel Farke’s men returned back to UK soil for four fixtures before the Premier League commenced, beginning with a behind-closed-doors match against Brentford and he Norwich City Football Team set off the season with great form and a legendary win against Manchester City. Daniel Farke had an injury plagued squad to select from and despite Manchester City dominating the opening exchanges, City sought to impose themselves onto the game, with a prolonged spell of possession culminating in a 3-2 victory against all the odds.

Apart from the seismic home win over champions Manchester City, Norwich’s return to the Premier League has largely been a difficult one.

Unfortunately, latter from has not been quite so impressive. The Norwich City Football Team have lost all four away league matches this season, culminating in a disastrous 5-1 defeat at Carrow Road today against Aston Villa, who had not earned a Premier League away win in 21 matches – a run going back to August 2015.

Norwich currently sit in the relegation zone Norwich and are predicted to concede more goals than any Premier League team this season. If the defeats continue, City will become the most relegated team ever from the Premier League, a title that they really could do without.
