Birmingham band Planet Loco

Planet Loco

Planet Loco, Digbeth Birmingham October 2016

A return to my roots for a recent band shoot.

I used to photograph a few musicians and bands in Manchester when I lived near there, Northern Uproar, Marion, Human League to name a few. Some of my portraits appeared in the NME, when it was required reading, not the comic version we have today.

More info about the band can be found here

 

Royal visit pictures used by the Royal Family

Today’s pictures I took of the Duke of Kent’s visit to Wolverhampton have been used by the Royal Family on their twitter account.

Can’t think of a better way to get excellent PR for the nursery.
