So here is the summer and festival season gets underway.
The road signs all pointed out to Ballinlough Castle, Co Westmeath… campervans and tents ready thousands set out for a weekend of good vibe music, fun and of course, drinking and who knows what..
The lineup was grand, with the likes of M83, Django Django, Little Dragon, Spiritualized, St Vincent and WhoMadeWho.
I could only attend the Sunday gigs, maybe next time I will take my tent too and stay the whole weekend
Here follow some shots, on assigment for State.ie :
Back in December I meet Simon Bird for a portrait shoot assignment for State.ie annual issue, Faces of 2012, which highlights the best music artists in the Irish scene.
Simon is a music producer who has put out some distinct tracks recently and got the attention of State.ie editors.
This time my assignment was not a live music performance, but a dedicated shoot 1-to-1 with the artist. I did a bit of researching and listened to Simon tracks to get a feeling and some inspiration/ideas for the portrait.
Turns out that the day was overcast but with colorful breaks of light. This created a dramatic feeling that matches Simon music work and we were both happy with the results.
Here is a screenshot of page where the portrait is featured:
