It’s been a busy weekend, Sunday night saw me shooting at the Coronet Theatre for Lets Go Crazy. The night was a sell out and around 3000 teenagers flocked to the venue for what was set to be another night to go down in Lets Go Crazy’s history books. The production team had gone all out to create an amazing set and a specialised laser team was flown in all the way from Ibiza! The aesthetics were simply stunning and the line-up was made to match, consisting of sets from Chase & Status, Friction, Trolley Snatcha, Boy Kid Cloud and Biometrix (of which it was his first main stage set). Here’s my favourite shots from the night, the rest will be up on the Lets go Crazy facebook page soon!
On Saturday night I was lucky enough to have the chance to photograph at the Pukka Up 9th Birthday Party at Proud 2. Having never been to a house night before I didn’t really know what to expect but the vibes were good and the music was energetic with Starkillers coming all the way from Las Vegas for his set! Oh, and there was a giant robot with lasers and pyrotechnics to top things off.
As I was shooting with my new project in mind I shot more slowly than normal as I was shooting on the Hasselblad too. It was nice to slow down my shooting and take everything into more consideration before I pressed the shutter, however I didn’t come out with as many final images to send off as I would have liked which was a bit of a bummer! Anyway, here’s my favourite few as per usual:

Last night I had the opportunity to photograph at Nero’s Aftershow at Electric Brixton following their show at the O2 Academy earlier that evening. The night was a sell out and by 11 the club was absolutely rammed. With the bass thrown up to ridiculous levels every act threw out banger after banger, shaking the walls of the old theatre. I was mainly focusing on shooting film last night for my Self Direct university project but here a couple I shot on digital:
I haven’t actually posted anything ‘proper’ here recently as I’ve been busy with uni and haven’t done much else really.. On Saturday I got the chance to document the happenings of a video shoot for Wideboys soon to be released track ‘Addicted to the Bass’. It was a busy yet funfilled day that consisted of crazy antics with fireworks and general party shenanigans for the video with the whole crew being treated to a set by Wideboys themselves with Majestic alongside to get everyone into the St. Patricks day mood! Here’s a few photos the day to wet your appetite for whats in store from the video directed by up and coming film-maker Sam Hurlock (www.samuelhurlock.com)

Sunday night saw the biggest night Lets Go Crazy has ever pulled off. The queues outside the venue were HUGE, going all round the block. It was easily a sell out night with the massive main room of the Coronet Theatre absolutely crammed from 10 through till 5.30 in the morning. The energetic 16+ crowd were treated to an amazing night of huge production (Think stage performers, massive lasers, extra lighting, fire cannons and popcorn, confetti and co2 cannons!) and an absurd line-up consisting of Hospital Records Netsky, Camo & Krooked and High Contrast playing alongside the likes of Borgore and Subscape. It was an incredible night, lets hope ‘Bunny Up’ on April the 1st (with Friction and Chase & Status already confirmed) lives up to last Sunday night. Here’s a few of my favourite shots from the night:
Couldn’t write this up last night as the internet at the hostel was down.. I went to the highest point in Berlin, Teufelsberg, which stands for Devils Mountain. It’s an artificial hill made from 12 million cubic metres of rubble collected from Berlin after World War Two! On top is an abandoned US listening station and the views from the roof were stunning on such a clear day. I didn’t venture inside as it was too dark and I didn’t have a torch but I’m happy with the shots on the roof! Later on I went to the Holocaust Memorial which was different to what I was expecting, I’d like to know what the significance of the blocks was though. Here’s some shots from the day as usual:
