RIP Frederick "Toots" Hibbert - Liverpool 2011

Published on Thu Oct 8, 2020 by

Sad to hear Jamaican reggae pioneer Frederick Nathaniel "Toots" Hibbert has died at the age of 77. The legendary musician fronted the reggae and ska band Toots & the Maytals from the early 1960s.

I've seeen them perhaps half a dozen times over the years but only photographed them once in 2011 when they headlined a gig at the Academy here in Liverpool. Of course they played all their hits including Pressure Drop, Sweet and Dandy, and 54-46 That's My Number. A legend.

Colour reflection experiments

Inspired by some recent colour and reflection experiments when on a holiday in Newcastle, I've had a delve back through my archive and found some nice image contrasts.

Exhibition Stand Photography at Trade Shows and Conferences

I have been photographing exhibition stands for many years and just realised I have never really posted about it before. Perhaps a few images in the end of year review, or as part of a bigger conference job. But I've been commissioned recently by a few stand designers and thought I would write some thoughts and highlight some favourite images from the archive.
