It's Xmas.

End of the photography year really, with Christmas and New Year nothing much happens in holiday season for commercial and press photography.Shortly I will be listing at top ten photographs of the year but for now enjoy some snow landscapes. Last couple of years winter is the only time I have photographed landscapes,something about the snow that makes me want to find cool places to shoot. I don't have a landscape photography website so hope you enjoy the three posted here.
First is Heckmondwike's Xmas lights,my old home town, a grim place in daylight,this makes it look suprisingly good.
 Fountains Abbey North Yorkshire,taken during the first winter spell at end of November.
 Third and final shot is over looking Laithes Reservoir on outskirts of Haworth, a favourite place of mine for Xmassy shots.Implements the rule of thirds nicely too!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from ImageviewPhotography

Shakira Manchester gig.

Shakira started her UK tour in Manchester Tuesday 14th December. I was there to photograph it South American sexy singer looked happy gyrating her hips to avrious latin pop dance numbers. Including her big hit "Whenever wherever", backed by musicians from her home land her set was a mixture of folk/latin America and pop with acoustic instruments,skin drums and harmonica! A cover of Metallica's Nothing Else Matters was performed in latino style at the end of the catwalk within touching distance of her fans.Her unique singing voice suits these ballad moments of which there were a few. But her finesse is her dancing, all hips and belly,twisting to the beats.
A couple of live shots are included below, more will be added to the music photography galleries.

Snow joke.

Recent heavy snow in UK provided many press photography opportunities, with towns cut off and roads unpassable.
Whilst it makes for good photo opportunites it is also difficult to get to places with bad snow, I travelled to Sheffield and Barnsley area looking for cool shots,didnt get stuck once!. Here are some photo images from Yorkshire. Keep an eye on my press photography site for more interesting  photography.
