Been a while since my last post!
I've got some gallery updates for you lucky people. Firstly, in my last post back in September I promised more photos from Southsea Fest - well, I delivered on that promise a while ago but forgot to blog about it. Anyway, please click the below image of one of my favourite bands of the day, Stagecoach, getting right into the audience.
Last week I was back in London to kick off the Winter gig season. I'd missed Death From Above 1979 the first time around so when they announced they were reforming for a tour I was pretty excited to say the least. Apart from being amazing live I also bumped into a lot of friendly faces in the pit, which is always fun. I also finally met photographer Tim Boddy in real life. He's very nice as are his pictures from the gig so be sure to check them out.
That's not all for Dan Smyth though. Last weekend I was busy taking portraits of unsuspecting people as part of Aviva's You are the big picture campaign, where they project people's faces onto the side of the National Theatre in London. Every picture I took they donated £2 to Save the Children wich was pretty cool. I was shooting with a bunch of really nice guys too which always helps. You can find out more information about the project here: http://www.aviva.com/about-us/our-brand/you-are-the-big-picture/
