Lebanon. Yes, I know that most of us have a perception of “a war torn country”..Yes, I did, I have to say…..I was so wrong!!…. I would recommend anyone to go there and visit…its one of the best places I have experienced.
I had the honor of photographing this beautiful couple’s wedding in the mountain of Lebanon. The beautiful town of Bcharre, 3 hours north of Beirut. I was amazed to hear (being in the middle east) this town gets up to 10 metres of snow in the winter. The ski fields are amazing!
As usual, I cant describe in words the absolute beauty of this country, just go there, discover it for yourself….you will be flawed…I know I was.
I apologies for the amount of images.
Recently I was blessed enough to be commissioned to photograph an amazing wedding in the mountains on Lebanon. (Which I promise I will blog very soon)
As we were so close to Egypt, we decided we would do a quick whirl wind tour of this extraordinary and historic country. A lot has happened to this poor country in the past couple of years, but you can see that it’s really is on its way to a strong recovery.
I certainly cant put into words the experiences we had, you just have to go there……And I can honestly say, my photography certainly doesn’t do it much justice either.
I was in the archives looking for some images when I stumble across some images that I still just love…just thought I would share.
It truly is amazing what images can do to remind you of where I was, what I was doing, what my goals were and what kept me inspired, motivated, passionate about what I was doing.
Yes, there may be a couple that have been seen before, but for me its a happy reminder.
The extremely talented and good friend Killian Gavin generously allowed me to come to see the show and take a few snaps.
My first time seeing the boys live was truly humbling experience! I know these boys have talent, but when you hear these guys play ‘live’, it makes you realise why they received as many ARIA’s they did!
I was fortunate enough to have time with them all before and after the show, and not only do they all have an extraordinary gift with music, work perfectly in harmony with each other, but they are the most easy going, laid back, and generous with their time guys I have ever met.
After been hassled by the boys about getting a shot on stage, from behind, audience in the background, I was, “Yep, no worries, I will jump out, get the shot, and jump back in behind the curtain” Well, lets just say as soon as I saw 8 or so thousand people out there, I tried my best…haha
Boys, the future is super bright for you all! Keep the music coming!!! I am so looking forward to hearing the album!
Thank you again for allowing me to share that time with you all!
Here are just a few of my favs.
