Glastonbury 2015 -Kanye and the rest

There can be no doubt that Kanye West’s Glastonbury booking and eventual performance created a lot of social media ‘noise’. The petitions and threats that followed the announcement of his booking mirrored that which greeted Jay-Z’s booking a few years back. With Jay-Z he quickly showed that he appreciated that UK events are different from those across the pond and Glastonbury is also very, very, very special.

For clarification, an ‘Uncle Bob’ is someone who has not been booked by the organisers to provide photography coverage of the event.

Quite simply, if someone has not engaged in the work for which they were vetted for 3 months their DBS check […]

Wedding Ceremony photography restrictions

Last year there were increasing numbers of media reports of snappers getting it completely wrong with regard to etiquette at weddings. One video that went viral was of a snapper being severely but correctly admonished by a Minister. This is an increasing problem and the restrictions that result are impacting on all photographers, not just the snappers. In the last century ( not that long ago ) when I used a Bronica at a few weddings some things were very […]
