Stiff Little Fingers at The Cambridge Junction

Thanks to Slate the Disco, I was lucky enough to be offered the opportunity to photograph 70’s punks Stiff Little Fingers earlier this month at The Cambridge Junction. It was quite the performance and their energy was still incredible, I was most impressed!

Below are my personal favourites from the night.

Matt Banks Portraits

After finally setting a date to meet up and braving the (literally) freezing weather, Matt Banks and I ventured into the Cambridge cityscape for a profile portrait shoot at the start of February.

Within minutes he gave me reason to question his sanity, by removing his Parka without prompting in the snow!  It yielded a great result though, the air vents on the side of the residential block were a great backdrop and he successfully looked at least 20 degrees warmer than he was! You’ll be pleased to know that after 5 minutes dressed back up to avoid hypothermia…

Our second location, an underpass near the station, also yielded some great results. Matt took something of a liking to an abandoned shopping trolley which made a great additional prop to his Epiphone acoustic guitar, giving the shots a harder street feel which suits his indie/britpop acoustic stylings superbly. Matt chose a selection of colour and B&W versions of his photos, but my personal preference leant on the B&W processing of his selection as it gave a grittier feel.

My favourites from the shoot are below and are among my favourite portraits I have made to date! Thanks to Matt for being such a good sport!
