 Music Photography: The Eyres Promo

We have worked with The Eyres many times since their inception as Sink Or Swim. They have gone through several line-up changes so keep us busy with lots of photography! The latest line-up needed some new photos ahead of some upcoming shows at The Box, Crewe and other great venues so we got together and produced a set of studio images. As it warms up outside we are planning to head out for some location photos to add to their vast collection!

It’s always good fun working with The Eyres. Lead singer Oli Ng was also with us all day for Boxjam V, the charity event we organise every year at The Box in Crewe. Thank Oli, and the rest of The Eyres!

We were commissioned by John Bramwell of I Am Kloot to get a set of promotional portrait photos. John wanted a set of images to use for publicity purposes for his latest solo tour. John decided on the location and we met up on the platform at Crewe Station. Complete with winter hat and guitar in it’s travel case we made a set of images for John to use.

Although John is well known for I Am Kloot, he is embarking on a solo tour in the first few months of 2014. He also has a live CD out to compliment the tour.

 Business Portrait Photography: Heather

We were recently commissioned to produce a set of portrait images of Heather Carter, founder of the 1st National Sales Academy. I spent some time to get to know Heather so I could really represent Heather in the portrait photography. I decided to photograph Heather in her workplace, as well as a few outdoor shots to compliment the selection.

Heather is currently using the portrait photos on her social media profiles. The images were also used in a short promotional video as stills overlaying audio. Heather is a thoroughly engaging character and I had great fun meeting and photographing her!

The Doors Alive recently made their debut at The Box in Crewe. Tina went along to photograph the tribute band. It represented the second time that Simon J. Newbury Photography has photographed the band. Back in 2007 we photographed them at DeBees in Winsford. As memory serves this was their first gig with their singer (an absolute dead ringer for Jim Morrison). The Box gig was well attended and below is one of Simon’s photos from back in 2007 followed by some of Tina’s photos from The Box, Crewe!

I’m a big fan of Placebo and was pleased to get a chance to photograph them at the O2 Manchester Apollo.

We were approached to step in at short notice to photograph some of the months for a charity calendar for DEBRA.

The organisers had booked a set of beauty queens to be the models for the various months and had also arranged the services of hair stylists and make-up artists. The shoot took place on Sunday 24th November and we had the company of little Lexie-Mae who stars on the cover of the calendar with model Sivahn. Lexie-Mae suffers with EB.
