BBC Radio Cymru – Lleisiau: Photography

07/04/2010

I have assisted on the large majority of photography featured in this BBC publication – ‘Lleisiau’ for Radio Cymru listeners. There were a number of locations, traveling the length of Wales from Bangor to Cardiff. This was a great opportunity to see some physical exposure of the photography I have been involved with recently. It’s a great little publication for the Welsh speaking public, but even if you can’t make out a word, you can appreciate the design and sensitivity to the photography and typographic treatment. This was pleasing to see, with my increased interest to combine both typical graphics and photography, it’s encouraging to see some literature that allows the imagery to breathe amongst clean and professional looking design.

While on shoot in my assisting role, I always have the intention to get out the iphone at any quiet lull and document the goings on of that particular moment. Here’s one of my little journeys at our final location shoot down by the sea at Penarth, near Cardiff.

Spillers Records 2010 Calendar

11/11/2009

This year, I was lucky enough to cover Record Store Day in Cardiff at the famous Spillers Records. Record Store Day is an annual event that encapsulates the love of the traditional record shop. During the day DJ sets by a number of different and varying artists, including Guto Pryce of the Super Furry Animals and Radio One DJ Bethan Elfyn, filled the shop on the Hayes with positively amazing tunes!  The Truckers of Husk made sure that the magic of Spillers instores continued!… playing at the far end of the shop, the crowds packed in! Bulging at all levels.. pedals filled the floor and their unique sound jabbed its way into every spillers soul..

Get yourself down to Spillers Cardiff, grab a 2010 calender for the new year!!  Record Store Day ’09 stands tall in my memory of great music events of 2009 at Spillers Records. The photography offers a time line to the past as well as this year. One of my fave photos is of the shop in 1994. With images from instores, Pop Peth exhibition at St.Fagans and Spillers around the world – Its a great capture from the oldest record shop in the world.

Treat yourself to the memories of the year that was..!
It’s almost Christmas after all!!
