The British weather is quite often a nuisance that we have to work around but the last couple of week’s have been a nightmare. Luckily I’ve not had a home devastated or had a road turn into a river but work has gone all over the place with the amount of rain we’ve been having and after spending a couple of days in a hotel in Birmingham waiting for the right conditions to shoot a London Festival event, I returned home to find out that Africa Oyé had been cancelled. Whilst the weekend weather itself was mostly ok, the organisers hadn’t been able to build the site due to the wind and rain over the preceding days but luckily they managed to pull together a genius one day event whereby some bands played the Picket with DJs and stalls taking over the The Blade Factory at Camp & Furnace and, although very different, the concentrated atmosphere and the die hard Africa Oyé fans meant the atmosphere was fantastic and hats off to the promoters and venue managers for pulling it all together so quickly!
Whilst I also blog some of my commercial work and commissions outside of Liverpool on my main portfolio site, Rivercool is dedicated to my work in and around the city and maybe sometimes just a little bit further afield as I work regularly across the region. Rivercool features both photo and video content from past and present and will include other photo news from the city and beyond.
