The weather was amazing and, unlike yesterday, I spent the whole day at the main festival site.

First up was a blast from the '90s past, the amazing Mr Motivator on the main stage. He got the crowd moving with his exercise routines!

Suitably warmed up we then headed over to see The Seamonsters. They were at the same school as my son and I first photographed them 2 years ago at KESJam, the school's talent contest. It's been great to see how far they've come (via Outlines in 2017) and I was thrilled that they opened the T'Other Stage.

We then headed off to the Leadmill Stage for a comedy marathon. We saw Tanyalee Davis, Jarred Christmas, Tom Wrigglesworth, Bethany Black and John Shuttleworth. The highlight was definitely Jarred Christmas - he was fabulous and very funny.

Next, I headed to the Main Stage to see The Sherlocks. Unfortunately, there had been a schedule change and Loyal were playing instead. I then headed to T'Other Stage and shot Little Comets, followed by the fantastic Sheafs. Sheafs were brilliant live, especially their frontman.

Next up was some old skool hip hop from De La Soul who were as great as they were in 2015 when they last played Tramlines.

The final act I photographed was Teleman on the Library Stage. They were another band I'd photographed at a previous Tramlines, this time in 2016. And like in 2016, they were fantastic too!

So that was Tramlines 2018. It was FANTASTIC! If this is my last year of photographing Tramlines it was a fabulous way to end my 8 years as an official Tramlines photographer.

Tramlines 2018 - Saturday Highlights https://www.simonbutlerphotography.com/blog/2018/7/tramlines-2018---saturday-highlights Saturday at Tramlines 2018 was a mix of the fringe and the official festival for me.

First up, after a wonderful lunch in Tamper, was a wander around the city centre to take in the street entertainers around Barkers Pool where I greatly enjoyed The Cling Film Guy, Granny Turismo, The Bee Gees and the two blokes having a rave. I made GIFs of 3 of these (see below).

I also popped into The Crystal Bar and caught two acts: Ivory Wave and Tyni. I enjoyed both but Tyni were especially photogenic!

We then headed over to the Red Lion on Charles Street to photograph two bands: The Silver Darlings and Sieben. The Silver Darlings were great, playing laid back tunes in a lovely old boozer.

But Sieben were something else. At this point I have to admit to a conflict of interest here: my son was singing backing vocals for the band. Photographing, and videoing, him performing at Tramlines was probably the proudest moment I have had in 8 years of covering Tramlines! However, even if my son hadn't been singing, I'd have enjoyed Sieben immensely.  As it was, I loved them!  They played to a packed pub who all seemed to enjoy the gig as much as I did!

We then headed back to the main festival. We were very fortunate to catch Boy Azooga; they were possibly the best band I've seen live at the main Tramlines festival (although I've seen some equally cracking live bands on the fringe, like Sieben earlier today). Boy Azooga were fantastic and were a real treat. Especially as they were a late replacement for a band who pulled out.  Although they didn't pull in a big crowd to the Leadmill Stage, they had a contingent of super fans in the crowd who made it a great atmosphere!

We saw Rat Boy after Boy Azooga but the lighting for Rat Boy was awful so I didn't get any good shots of the band but I did get some of the crowd.

Finally, after some amazing pizzas, churros (for me) and crêpes (for her), I took a few photos of the massive crowd for Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.

You can see a selection of the photos and GIFs from Saturday below. But you can see more my Tramlines 2018 gallery.

Tramlines 2018 - Friday Night https://www.simonbutlerphotography.com/blog/2018/7/tramlines-2018---friday-night For the 8th year in a row I have a photo pass for Tramlines. But it is all change this year. The festival has moved to be all in one location - Hillsborough Park - outside of the city centre.  This means that there are 4 stages in one park and the festival is now much more like a smaller version of something like the Leeds Festival than a city centre festival.  There is still a fantastic fringe festival in the city centre but it seems quite removed from the new location (especially as unfortunately the trams were on strike).  However, the park was rammed with people and the atmosphere was amazing.

I loved the new Leadmill tent - and craft beer bar behind it! - and I can't wait to photograph at the new T'Other Stage once it opens today. There was a very good range of food stalls and I also liked the Library stage even though I didn't get a chance to photograph there - I hope to rectify this today.

For me personally, there is one major change: unfortunately the festival organisers have decided not to use the same photography team as their official photographers this year. This means that I - and my 6 extremely talented colleagues - are not directly working for Tramlines this year. We all still got photo - and VIP! - passes but we are working for ourselves rather than the festival. It's a shame, but things change. I'm determined to enjoy this festival to the max just in case I don't get a pass next year!

So, on to the photos and short write up of the first night of Tramlines.

After what felt like weeks of 25C permanent sunshine it was disappointing to report that it rained but it didn't dampen the atmosphere - I had a blast! I managed to avoid most of the rain in the excellent new Leadmill tent but I did get wet during Everything Everything on the Main Stage. It was worth though because they were fantastic. Other highlights of the night included the wonderful Mystery Jets in the Leadmill tent and the Into the Trees 80s DJ after the bands had finished.

Below are some highlight of my photos from the night; you can see more in my Tramlines 2018 gallery here: Tramlines 2018 gallery.

The team was the Global Engagement Team who wanted some team group photos as well as some headshots.

We met up in the wonderful Weston Park to take the photos. Weston Park was as lovely as ever but you could tell it hasn't rained in Sheffield for weeks: everywhere was very parched.

University of Sheffield Graduation 2018 https://www.simonbutlerphotography.com/blog/2018/7/university-of-sheffield-graduation-2018 University of Sheffield Graduation 2018University of Sheffield Graduation 2018Photo from the University of Sheffield Graduation 2018 I was booked by the University of Sheffield to take photos of their graduation on Monday. The brief was to take photos of the graduates and their families outside of the Octagon Centre - where the graduation ceremony takes place - and the Student's Union next door.  I went slightly outside of the brief to cross over the road to take photos of graduates outside of Firth Court, the main building of the university.

It was fantastic to photograph all of the graduates and their families. There was so much positivity in the air and everyone was more than happy to have their photo taken.

I was, however, slightly gutted that I didn't get booked to cover the ceremony on Wednesday because McNulty himself, Sheffield's own Dominic West, was one of the honorary graduates. It would have been amazing to photograph him!  Maybe next time.

Anyway, the graduates I did photograph were amazing and you can see a selection of the photos below.  

One of the things I got as many of the graduates to do as possible was through their mortar boards in the air. I turned a number of those into GIFs:

Lorah and Terry's Scunthorpe Wedding https://www.simonbutlerphotography.com/blog/2018/7/lorah-and-terrys-scunthorpe-wedding Lorah and Terry's Scunthorpe WeddingLorah and Terry's Scunthorpe WeddingLorah and Terry's Scunthorpe Wedding at St Peter ad Vincula Church and Grange Park Golf Club

I had a blast photographing Lorah and Terry's wedding at the weekend. It was a wonderful day fun of lots of sunshine, laughter and love.

I was booked to photograph the wedding by Lorah's brother Deyne, an old photography friend of mine. He said that when his sister got married he wanted me to photograph the wedding. Thanks for the booking Deyne!

Lorah and Deyne certainly know how to organise a great do. They chose two fantastic venues: the Church of St. Peter ad Vincula, Bottesford for the ceremony and Grange Park Golf Club for the reception and evening do.

I started off the day with the bridal party taking photos of the girls getting ready. It was a busy, yet very relaxed, couple of hours mainly thanks to the great organisational skills of Emma, one of the bridesmaids. The bridal party were getting ready at her house and she had them all up at 8AM for a 2:30PM wedding start. So it was easy for me to wander about taking snaps as they had their hair and make up done. Not even a bird flying into the house before I arrived put them off!

I then headed over to the church to photograph guests arriving and also speak to the vicar. She wanted to speak to me about the photography and she couldn't have been more lovely and accommodating to my photography needs. She ran a really lovely, relaxed ceremony and I loved her attitude to including children in the ceremony: they will make noise and parents should just let them. She didn't want any parent to say "shush!" or similar and provided lego at the back for the children to play with.

I made a few GIFs from the ceremony as well as one of the happy couple driving away from the church in a wonderful classic car.

 

 

 

 

The reception and evening dos at Grange Park were lovely too. The venue was very tastefully decorated and the BBQ was delicious (thanks Lorah and Terry for letting me have some as well as a lovely Eton Mess too!).

All in all it was wonderful and below are my highlights from the day.

There were two reasons for this: firstly she is very photogenic and the second was that we did the shoot in her wonderful garden. It made for the perfect location!

As well as photos of Charlotte we were able to take a quick few photos of her with her husband Luc too.

Big CACTUS end of study event - University of Sheffield https://www.simonbutlerphotography.com/blog/2018/7/big-cactus-end-of-study-event---university-of-sheffield Last month I was booked by the University of Sheffield to photograph an event to mark the end of a 4 year, £1.5M, research project called Big CACTUS. The project looked at whether people with aphasia can continue to improve their ability to talk after completion of traditional NHS therapy, and whether this can be achieved cost effectively by offering computer treatment at home. More than 350,000 people in the UK are living with aphasia. The language disorder, which is caused by an injury to the brain, can make it difficult for people to talk, understand, read and write. One in three people are affected by aphasia after a stroke.

It was a fantastic event held in Firth Hall at the historic Firth Court at the university. The audience was made up of people living with aphasia, researchers and their families, carers, health care staff, service providers and commissioners to mark the end of the project.  There was such a positive atmosphere and it was a pleasure to photograph 

My brief was to document the event, then photograph some of the teams who worked on the study.  You can see some of these photos below; all of the photos I took can be found in this gallery: Big CACTUS end of study event photos.

By the way, I can report that the cakes tasted as good as they looked!

Jack's Sale Christening https://www.simonbutlerphotography.com/blog/2018/6/jacks-sale-christening I had the pleasure to photograph the christening of 6 month old Jack on Sunday. He was christened at St Joseph's Church in Sale followed by a reception at the Belmore Sale. The event was a delight to photograph and I can recommend both venues if you live in the area.

Below are a few highlights from the day. You can see all of the photos in this gallery: Jack's Sale Christening.

Awards Ceremony at the fantastic Lambert's Yard, Leeds https://www.simonbutlerphotography.com/blog/2018/6/investors-in-the-environment-and-pennine-pack-awards-ceremony-2018 I was very fortunate to be booked to photograph the Investors in the Environment and Pennine Pack awards event on Wednesday afternoon. It was at the fantastic Lambert's Yard in Leeds which was the perfect venue: trendy loft conversion style layout with lots of low light filament bulbs, red brick walls and vintage floors. And not forgetting a lovely little bar serving beer, wine and soft drinks.

The event was organised to highlight, and present awards to, companies and organisations who have made significant reductions in resources such as electricity, water and other resources. The highlight for me was the fact that Barnsley Metrodome have installed two 'superloos' that use 80% less water per flush!

I took lots of initial photos of people arriving and networking followed by the talks by John Mooney, Director of Pennine Pack and by keynote speaker, Tony Juniper. Tony is a campaigner, writer, sustainability advisor and leading British environmentalist. His talk was fascinating.

Following on from the talks Becky and Graham from Pennine Pack then gave out awards to members of Investors in the Environment and Pennine Pack for their environmental achievements. i then took a group photo of the winners.

I'm thrilled to say that I've been provisionally booked to photograph the same event again next year and I already can't wait!

Nat and Ryan's colourful Sheffield pre-wedding photoshoot https://www.simonbutlerphotography.com/blog/2018/6/nat-and-ryans-colourful-sheffield-pre-wedding-photoshoot Last week I met up with Nat and Ryan ahead of their September wedding to scout out locations for "photos with the graffiti and industrial places around Sheffield" that they wanted as a backdrop to their wedding photos. Sheffield has so many locations with both that it was difficult to choose the best location.  But we decided to start in Neepsend and see if that had enough suitable locations. And it certainly did!

Neepsend is home to fantastic graffiti from Pete McKee - his wonderful Frank the hobnob dogPhlegm at the House skatepark and Kid Acne at piña (plus loads more by artists I didn't recognise) as well as loads of industrial units. Perfect for a graffiti and industrial photoshoot.

I took my camera with me to take some test shots. I took so many that it kind of became an informal pre-wedding photoshoot. I was concentrating more on the backgrounds and colours than what Nat and Ryan looked like but I am really, really happy with the locations we found. I can't wait to shoot their wedding in a couple of months!  I just hope the weather is as good as it was perfect on that Monday evening.

Robots, bridges and balloons: a school science event https://www.simonbutlerphotography.com/blog/2018/4/robots-bridges-and-balloons-a-school-science-event I was recently booked to take photos at a STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) event at Batley Girls' High School.  It was a great event and featured robots, bridge building, keyhole surgery and chairs made of balloons.  

My photos are featured on page 1 and 15 of the school's spring newsletter here: Batley Girls' High School Spring 2018 Newsletter

You can also see all of the photos below.

Lucy - contortionist . gymnast photoshoot https://www.simonbutlerphotography.com/blog/2018/2/lucy---contortionist-gymnast-photoshoot

I was contacted by Laura, the Mum of 9 year old Lucy, back in late 2017.  She wanted to buy a portrait photoshoot as a Christmas present and I was more than happy to oblige by making up a voucher. And I was looking forward to the shoot as Lucy is a talented contortionist and gymnast - see her Instagram to see some of her amazing moves. We had the shoot today and we had a blast! Contact me if you'd like to buy a similar voucher for your child or relative.

I was very fortunate that Lucy's Dad runs the Creative Arts Hub in Mirfield as this made for a fantastic location for the shoot. And that Lucy could contort her body into many painful-if-I-tried but amazing looking positions!

You can see a selection of my picks of the shoot below as well as a wider view of my "studio" set-up.  And you can see more in the full gallery of photos. By the way, Lucy's friend Tia accompanied Lucy to the shoot and I took some of her and the two of them together. I've not shared any photos of Tia until i've had a chance to speak to Tia's Mum. So I will add these photos once I get permission.

Louise photoshoot https://www.simonbutlerphotography.com/blog/2018/2/louise-photoshoot

I was really pleased to be book by Louise to take some headshots earlier this week. It was great fun and we got some great shots that she was really happy with.

The lounge in my new home makes a perfect pop-up studio for these sessions as you can see in the behind-the-scenes photo I took with my phone below. The eagle-eyed amongst you may have spotted I have two new bits of equipment for my studio: a Neewer 47"/120cm Octagonal Softbox and a YongNuo YN-560 III Flashgun, both of which are excellent additions to my arsenal of equipment!

You can also see some more of the photos I took of Louise below.

Let me know if you want me to take some studio style headshots for you or your business!

Wedding fayres agogo! https://www.simonbutlerphotography.com/blog/2018/1/wedding-fayres-agogo

As I mentioned in my previous post, I am now able to devote more time to photography, which I am thrilled with. This has allowed me to actively seek out photography jobs rather than rely on people finding me as I did before.  One area I wanted to grow my photography in is definitely wedding photography. I LOVE photographing weddings and am keen to photograph as many as I can.  So I am thrilled that I am booked to exhibit at 3 wedding fairs - or fayres as they are called - over the coming days, weeks and months.

And there is an extra special reason for brides and grooms to visit the wedding fayres: If you book me for your wedding at the fayre you can get a free pre-wedding shoot that usually costs £125! 

First up is on Sunday this week: the Yorkshire Wedding Fayre at Leeds Crowne Plaza. This will be my first wedding fair and I can't wait to meet lots of prospective brides and grooms!

Smiley face

Then on Thursday 22 March and Thursday 13 September this year I am really excited to be exhibiting at the wedding fayres at Dewsbury and District Golf Club in Mirfield.

Smiley face

I look forward to meeting as many brides and grooms as I can at all 3 fayres and showing them examples of my past wedding photos!

Exciting times! https://www.simonbutlerphotography.com/blog/2018/1/exciting-times For the last few years I have been an evenings and weekend photographer, fitting in my photography with my full-time day job. Because of this, I have had to turn down photography jobs during the week because my day job prevented me from being available.

However, in November 2017, I was given a brilliant opportunity: I started working part-time in my day job, allowing me to dedicate more time to photography.

I couldn't be happier with this new arrangement. It has already led to lots of wonderful photography jobs and I am very keen to add more photography jobs for 2018!  So please do contact me if you are looking for a wedding, event, portrait or corporate photographer.

Another change for me is that I moved from Sheffield to Mirfield, West Yorkshire, in September 2017. My day job is still in Sheffield so I am very much available for photography bookings in Sheffield and surrounding areas as well as in West Yorkshire (i.e. Leeds, Huddersfield, Bradford, Dewsbury as well as my lovely home town of Mirfield!).  And of course I'd be more than happy to travel further afield - I'm thinking of you Doncaster, Manchester, York, Nottingham, Liverpool etc - so please let me know if you need a photographer in far flung places.

Below is a selection of photos I have been booked to take since November 2017.  I have had more bookings than those I show below; this is because quite a few of my bookings have asked for the photos to not be shared publicly.  For instance I have photographed a 5th birthday party, a 6th birthday party, a new-born baby shoot, photos of University of Sheffield Computer Science students undertaking research with robots (!) and a science event at a secondary school, none of which unfortunately I can share.

Sheffield Hallam University Graduation 2017

I was booked by a number of Sheffield Hallam University graduates to take some informal photos of their graduation with their families.  Please get in touch if you want me to do this for you when you graduate!

Sunday at Tramlines 2017 https://www.simonbutlerphotography.com/blog/2017/7/sunday-at-tramlines-2017 Sunday at Tramlines 2017 was even more magical, spine-tingling and amazing than the first two days. It may even have been the best day ever at Tramlines for me!

This was mainly due to the first band I covered: the Sheffield Sgt. Pepper Project. This was a collection of 30 Sheffield musicians and singers who performed a note perfect version of the whole of The Beatles Sgt. Pepper album. It was one of the best gigs I have ever had the privilege to photograph and experience. Magical doesn't really do it justice.  It was on at 1PM in the Folk Forest and they drew an enormous crowd, which was amazing for the opening act of the day.  If all I did was watch the gig and take a few photos it would have been wonderful but I was asked by the Folk Forest organisers to get on stage at the end and take a photo of the crowd. And that was FANTASTIC. So many people were there and they all, mainly, followed the instructions to raise their hands in the air as you can see from the photo below.  The performance is being repeated at the O2 in November so I'd highly recommend you getting tickets if you can.

So how do you follow that?  This was a question posed by John Joseph Brill who was next on stage at Folk Forest. I didn't take any photos because I was too busy eating a wonderful chickpea curry with pakoras from the lovely curry stall followed by delicious rose lemonade and a wonderful-as-usual Forge Bake House brownie from the coffee truck.

I then headed to see Loyle Carner at the Main Stage. I think he's great and loved all of the songs that 6 music have played of his over the last year. I was gutted that I didn't know who he was last year when he played Outlines so I missed him then (I missed him because I rely on 6 Music to introduce me to new music and as they weren't playing him in Feb last year, and I'm not quite cool enough to get my new music from other sources, I missed out).  Am so glad I caught him this time as he was really excellent.  A real show man and really very expressive so a joy to photograph.  Just wish that someone in the crowd hadn't thrown him a t-shirt as he held on to it which made keeping him in frame difficult.

Unfortunately the soles of my girlfriend's boots came off her old boots so we had to quickly nip home to get her some different shoes so I had to miss a bit of the festival. However, once we returned, we headed to Devonshire Green to see The Coral. It was great to have Dev Green back as a stage as it's an excellent venue for photographs. The banked stage which is higher at the back than the front makes taking shots of the whole crowd really easy.

The Coral were fantastic and it was wonderful to see a packed Dev Green bouncing along to Dreaming of You, their final song despite the rain.

As with Saturday we headed to The Crystal Bar for the end of the night and the festival itself.

Here we saw two very different bands to those we saw the night before. The first was a band based around a singer called Keir. Keir was a real talent who seemed a mix between Prince and Mika (but in a good way!).  He really gave his all while singing and in a more tender song about unrequited love he actually broke down and started crying 3/4 of the way through the song.  He was very embarrassed and kept apologising but everyone in the crowd were cheering. It really added to his performance. If he's not a big star in a year or two I will be very surprised.

The final act of the night, and of Tramlines 2017 for me, was Faerground Accidents.  They were very entertaining and an excellent end to the festival. I'd heard good things about them in the past but I'd never seen them before. So it was great to finally see them.

So that is Tramlines over for another year. I had an absolute blast and I already can't wait until Tramlines 2018!

Saturday at Tramlines 2017 https://www.simonbutlerphotography.com/blog/2017/7/saturday-at-tramlines-2017

 

 

 

Days 2 of Tramlines 2017 was one of the best, and most eventful, days of the 7 years I've been covering Tramlines. It had everything: exciting and amazing gigs, crowd surfing, torrential rain, glorious sunshine and wonderful festival goers.

I started off my Tramlines Saturday by covering the street entertainment. As per usual they were incredibly entertaining and a great free gift to the city of Sheffield from Tramlines. I caught the Beegees, Granny Turismo, the SWANK girl guides and two street theatre performers. All really entertained me and made me laugh loads.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I then headed over to the main stage to catch Toots and the Maytals followed by Cabbage. Toots and his band were fantastic and drew an enormous crowd. He played all of his hits and was thoroughly entertaining while being the coolest, and most laid back, 70-something in the world. It also helped that the sun was shining so I also was able to take lots of photos of punters enjoying the atmosphere.

Cabbage were a complete contrast and, although I enjoyed them, they weren't as popular as Toots; the crowd dissipated quickly after Toots finished which was a shame as Cabbage were great high energy indie punk noise pop. 

Next up was Cate Le Bon at the Folk Forest where I met up with my girlfriend Sarah. Unfortunately the glorious weather was replaced by torrential rain so my camera stayed in its bag for that one.  It's just as well it did as we got completely soaked (and I discovered that my rain coat wasn't so waterproof after all! 

Afterwards I was supposed to cover Primal Scream but I didn't fancy getting wetter still so we headed to the Crystal Bar as this was indoors and dry!  And I was so pleased that we did as I finally, after 7 years, managed to experience and photograph some crowd surfing at a gig! It was during the performance of Avalanche Party. The lead singer was singing really closely to the front of the mosh pit and he suddenly launched himself onto the crowd. I quickly grabbed my camera, put on the trusty ultra-wide lens and got in amongst the throng to capture the action.  Unfortunately I forgot to put on my flashgun so the resulting image is a little dark and grainy but I think it works.  You can see the crowd surfing photo at the top of this post.

The next band on the bill, October Drift, were every bit as entertaining as the previous band. Instead of crowd surfing the singer of this band jumped up onto the roof and sang down to the crowd!

And that was Saturday done and dusted.  You can see all of my photos from Saturday here: Tramlines 2017 photos

Stay tuned for my Sunday report coming soon...

Friday night at Tramlines 2017 https://www.simonbutlerphotography.com/blog/2017/7/friday-night-at-tramlines-2017 For the 7th year in a row I am again one of the official photographers for Tramlines. And for the 7th year in a row I am having an absolute blast covering the festival!

Last night was the opening night and I based myself at the Main Stage at Ponderosa Park.  It was a great night despite the light rain that accompanied some of headliners The Libertines barnstorming set.

Below are my highlights from the night. Can't wait for the rest of the festival!

Outlines Festival 2017 - Out of this world! https://www.simonbutlerphotography.com/blog/2017/3/outlines-festival-2017---out-of-this-world Last weekend I had the enormous pleasure of being one of the official photographers for the Outlines Festival.

Now in its second year, Outlines 2017 was a bigger and better event than last year, mainly due to it expanding to be a 2 day festival having added a Friday night to the programme.  And I was really pleased to see that despite the rain the crowds came out and supported the event.

Highlights for me this year included the Nirvana and Pixies-influenced - and very hairy - The Wytches at the Harley, the amazingly photogenic Law Holt at Plug, the loud and punky Cowtown at Queens Social Club and the R&B with attitude of Bossy Love.  But one of the proudest moments was photographing The Seamonsters - a band from my son's school - playing to a large crowd at 6PM on a Friday night in the smallest room in Plug. They were excellent and hopefully this will be the stepping stone to greatness...

Anyway, below are a selection of the photos I took (you can see them all in the Outlines 2017 gallery here
