Wychwood Music Festival 2016

Just a very small selection from the 1000’s of images I took at this years Wychwood Music Festival in Cheltenham over the weekend.
It was a roaring success as it is every year and I really enjoyed myself. Lots of images uploaded to my agency, lots of fun and lots of interesting people.

I was also chuffed to bits as I got to meet Craig Charles and he signed one of my images of him from a previous year at Wychwood and he genuinely liked it. I also got Pauline Black from The Selector to sign a print I made of her from a previous gig.

Wychwood is a really good family friendly festival. It isn’t so big it is a problem but big enough to attract decent named acts and huge crowds, all of which were and are very well behaved.

All in all for me a very good weekend.

The Face of Remembrance Day in Swindon 2015

Today was Remembrance Day in Swindon. I was there as usual and true to (my) form I have recorded some of the faces of Remembrance in Swindon. They are all locals and that includes Robert Buckland Conservative MP for Swindon South and Solicitor General for England and Wales. Along with Justin Tomlinson, Conservative MP for Swindon North and Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Disabled People.

I had a number of interesting discussions some of which centred around the fact that quite a few of the RBL standard bearers are getting older and wont be able to carry them for much longer there are not many younger people joining and willing to carry the standard at all of these type of events. Despite there being a very large contingent of Army, Army Reservists, Cadets from all three branches of the services not many of them are joining the RBL.

After saying that I am sure this event will continue for many years to come.

Swindon Gay Pride Parade August 2015

Well, first thing to say is that I have failed to keep up with my at least one blog post per week this year. I have really just been either so busy or I have just lost my enthusiasm for it. Either way I am going to try to make up for it and post loads of images from what I have been doing.

Last sat was Swindon Gay Pride 2015. I had fun photographing the parade but to be honest my heart wasn’t in it when it came to the music and just hanging around. I think I left about 4.30 and probably missed quite a bit but I firmly believe that photography is an art form and your heart has to be in it as well as your head.

More catch up posts to come.
