Model Aeroplanes XXX-Mas Party - Reading Rooms, Dundee

On Christmas Eve-Eve, The Reading Rooms in Dundee was host to MA's XXX-Mas Party. It was billed to be a sweaty and messy night, and it certainly lived up to expectations.

Model Aeroplanes // La Belle Angèle

Last week I decided (very last minute) to take a trip through to Edinburgh to catch Model Aeroplanes as they took on La Belle Angèle. It's been an absolute age since shooting these guys and it was so much fun getting back into the swing and trying some new shooting techniques out during the gig.

Unfortunately I arrived to the venue to only catch the tail end of support band, NOAH NOAH, but what I heard was what set the crowd up for a cracking night of music.

It was also good fun to catch up with the Indigo Velvet lot after last shooting for them at T in the Park. They'll be on tour very soon, and it's thoroughly recommended you get along to at least one night of it. Not to miss!

Anyway, here's the goods...

Model Aeroplanes - Tour 2016 - The Caves, Edinburgh.

Model Aeroplanes kicked off the first date of their headline tour at The Caves in Edinburgh. The EP hadn't been released yet and fans were expecting big things. Safe to say no one left disappointed!
They were supported by Into the Ark and Edinburgh's own Retro Video Club.

You can read a review of the gig over on the site.

Model Aeroplanes - Something Like Heaven EP Cover

Not long after they were signed by Island Records back in September 2015, I was approached by Scottish band Model Aeroplanes, to collaborate with them on a cover for their first ever EP release. We put together ideas and pitched it to the label, and once signed off, we went ahead and shot both the cover and some promotional material with the band. The edited work was then sent to the talented American graphic designer, Samuel Adam, for him to add the finishing touches. Read more about his side of it here.

With the EP not out until March 4th 2016, the artwork was embargoed until late February/beginning of March with the promotional work being sent to blogs, magazines and newspapers.

The LaFontaines / Eliza and the Bear / Model Aeroplanes

Saturday past I travelled through to Glasgow to shoot a gig that was a long time in coming. A few cherries were popped that night with the bands playing their first ever show at the Barrowlands Ballroom and what a show it was!

It was also the first time shooting with the new kit and I was thoroughly impressed with the results.

Take a look for yourself!

Twin Atlantic / Fatherson / Model Aeroplanes

I was recently lucky enough to get the opportunity to photograph Model Aeroplanes as they supported Twin Atlantic as part of Perth Concert Hall's 10th Anniversary. I also managed to sneak in some shots of both Fatherson and Twin Atlantic as they stunned the Perth crowd. 

Below are some shots from the night.
