The Brickyard, Carlisle

June 26, 2017

The end of an era, the Phantoms play their last gig with their bassist Tom, but what a power house performance!

Castle Hotel 3/3/17

March 11, 2017

WOW! What a gig, Great performance from all the bands we saw that night at the Castle Hotel, once again in Manchester. It was a spectacular one from Glass Phantoms, coming back to play again where they played their first gig. A bloody scary performance from Bones Shake, genuinely frightened at points. And, overall mind blowing one from Twisted Dolls, now only playing as a two piece (Still gutted we didn’t get to hear Electrify). Overall I got some pretty dirty photos…

The Lomo Project

April 1, 2016

The Lomo Project The Lomo project was something I embarked on for my A-Level computing project. It was a simple and minimal iOS application that allowed users to create and develop their own Lomography style images that incorporate the experimental style and feel of using real film cameras, without the expense. For this, I added a variety of different elements to the application to create a universal feel for the user. First, I added a section where the user can…
