I enjoyed shooting these images 25 or so years ago and it’s great that they are still popular years on. Of all the bands I shot it was The Smiths I loved seeing most and none of the albums really beat the atmosphere of their live shows.Bit by bit I am adding other artists to the collection – so far U2 ,Miles Davis,Prince , Madonna, John Lydon,Nina Simone,Gregory Isaacs,New Order…but more will follow
These days these images continue to crop up in magazines and books and remind me fondly of my time in Manchester. Many are available as Limited edition prints which I sign and edition and have been sent all over the world. I love the idea of my photos of my favourite band being framed and cherished. Prices start at £65 and each is produced on real silver halide photographic paper and printed with a white border. I’m pleased that people enjoy them years later and also they have raised money for a variety of charities.
These prints are individually produced and signed – in the unlikely event that a print should need to be returned: please notify me first and then return in pristine condition for review within 7 days as is standard with web based sales
I’m still enjoying working as a photographer and photograph portraits weddings and civil partnerships – anywhere really!
The original image was shot at the Hacienda first birthday party in 1984-the white splodge is a mark made by a cream cake….used years later on the Paen to Wilson album sleeve The portrait of Tony Wilson on his own – was shot in the Hacienda dressing room in 1985 Sales of these prints are different from other photographs and I will donate £25 to Christies Hospital Manchester from each print sold.
