Last year, local rock guitarist Al Harrington commissioned me to shoot some pictures of him for his then upcoming new website. This I did mostly down at South Gare, being a great location albeit rather windswept most of the time. It is as you may gather from browsing my galleries, one of my favourite haunts for shooting landscapes too; seemingly there is always something different to find there…..
Anyway, after much time his website finally went live to great effect, here:- http://alharrington.co.uk/
A selection of the shots will be uploaded in the next few days.
Again, much of this work was undertaken on toy cameras, mainly one of my trusty Dianas, and may appear on Al’s next CD cover, both back and front images.
I also submitted some of this and other toy camera shots to the new Toy Camera book being produced through Blurb by a team in the USA, and one of the shots of Al was selected for inclusion, page 106, here:-
Unfortunately, this doesn’t bring any cash in, just the kudos of being involved!
So I guess I’lljust have to get on with my next book (apart from the new Redcar JazzClub one) – all taken with toy cameras, and also produced through Blurb. Watch this space!
Other news on the Rock Music front is that many of my classic rock images are now marketed by Getty Images, and the latest use is in the current issue of ‘Classic Rock Presents’….Whitesnake, with a number of my shots, both landscape and an early David Coverdale pic from Redcar Jazz Club. This magazine also has a fair few pieces of ephemera from the RJC, a little taste of what is to come when our new RJC book is published later this year……
