Happy Birthday Mr Yule

mike50__2274The charming and effervescent Mr Mike Yule recently celebrated his birthday in the Rangataua Hall near Ohakune. It was an outstanding gig and a real lesson in always carrying a camera.

Wellington band “Uncle Trollable” were superb and combined with the lighting of Alan Baird-Smith (and the ability for me to slip onstage while they played) produced some great photo opportunities. Huge ups to Mike, the band and in particular lead singers that appear here: Rob Lenihan (in hats), Dave Ellis (an outstanding cover of Shadowplay) and Steve Aiken (with headlamp).

Happy Birthday Mr Yule. Chur.

Take Shelter!

Two shots from a gig featuring punk band Johnny and the Felchers (along with Numbskull and Meth Drinker) from a few weekends ago. Unfortunately I arrived after it started and couldn’t stay long but with any luck I will get to shoot these guys again. The gig was in an old Wellington WW2 fortress – a stonking venue. It fits nicely into a couple of new projects I a working on – watch this space there is more to come.
