Nerina Pallot

Nerina Pallot

Both Nerina Pallot’s and Imogen Heap’s concerts were due to take place last October, but were both postponed until this week; this made for a busy week of photography, but great for my listening entertainment! Nerina is starting her latest tour, promoting her recent album “Fires”, which contains the excellent singles “Everybody’s Gone to...

"Elemental" – CUCDW Dance Show @ ADC Theatre

As I wasn’t able to get photographs of the whole show last Monday evening (see previous post), I went to the last performance of the week, and took photographs from the lighting box, accompanied by the show’s very talented lighting designer, Eddy Langley. Having spent well over an hour just downloading the photos, rotating them, sorting them into each of the 25 dances,...

Cambridge in the snow

Cambridge in the snow

I woke up this morning to find snow lining the tree outside my window. With great glee, I grabbed my camera and headed in to work, taking a long scenic detour through St. John’s college backs. The last time I remember snow settling in Cambridge, and when I got photos, was in March 2005 (see the album on Cantabphotos). I tend to gravitate towards St. John’s, my alma...

Imogen Heap @ Cambridge Junction

Imogen Heap @ Cambridge Junction

The second of my photoshoots this evening was Imogen Heap’s concert at the Cambridge Junction. Postponed since October 2006, this was the last date of her UK tour, and her last tour performance until she completes a new album, sometime in 2008. Hounded with technical problems (misbehaving Mac and repeaters (her ‘Parrot’)), she nevertheless wowed the crowd with her...

"Elemental" – CUCDW Dance Show @ ADC Theatre

I’d been looking forward to this year’s CUCDW Dance Show (Cambridge University Contemporary Dance Workshop), as I used to dance with people who performed in previous shows, and have always enjoyed the performances, lighting and music. Last year, I managed to get some wonderful photos of the show, called “Touch”. This year, I was asked back to photograph the...

Coloured Discs

Coloured Discs

Haven’t had much time recently to sort through my latest photos, but as I’d like to update this photoblog regularly, I’ll add some older photos that haven’t had public airing yet. Here’s one I took at Strawberry Fair in June 2006.

Landscape fading into the sunset

Landscape fading into the sunset

Another clear and mild day in Cambridge, so I took my camera out to capture some of magic hour. This time, I wandered around the St. John’s backs briefly, before heading up to my favourite haunt, Castle Mound, to watch the sun set. These next two photos were taken 4 minutes apart, and are quite similar to a stunning mountainscape I took in Edinburgh. I love photos...

Cambridge Sunset Panorama

Cambridge Sunset Panorama

I took a panoramic view of a stunning sunset back in November 2005, viewed from Castle Mound in Cambridge. Lord knows why I waited a year to stitch together the photos. I only stiched about 340 degrees of the view, so don’t have a full wrap-around, but there were 40 photos, resulting in an output file weighing in at a hefty 108 megapixels. I’ve cropped it down to 70...
