t in the park 2014 in pictures

For the seventh year in a row I was lucky enough to be asked to cover t In The Park for the Daily Record and Sunday Mail newspapers. It Is such a privilege to be asked. Even though It is a huge and very exhausting job, I was really looking forward to covering It. Also as the weather forecast was for sunshine, I knew It was going to be a great one.

For this blog I’m just really going to use It to show off my pictures and keep the writing brief. If you would like a detailed description of what It’s like to work as a professional photographer at a music festival then have a look at my blog for last year.

I arrived at about midday on the Friday as usual. This year there was a full line up instead of a reduced bill, which has happened all the other years It’s been open on a Friday. This meant we were running about mad as soon as we arrived.

After doing the usual fans pictures, I covered my first band called Haim. They are an American pop rock band from Los Angeles and were one of the most entertaining to photograph of the whole weekend. This was thanks to the facial expressions of one of the band members. She reminded me of Steven Tyler from Aerosmith.

Next It was onto the main stage to cover Magic dragons. The organisers had built an extension to the stage which jutted out towards the crowd for Biffy Clyro who were headlining. Even though It wasn’t completed the lead singer from Magic Dragons decided to make use of It.

I’m so glad he did because the curse of the main stage happened again, where the singer wore all black which was a nightmare to shoot against the black background of the stage.

In previous years DJ’s were a nightmare to shoot because they were up so high. This meant you usually lucky to even get a head shot. This year was much better though as the stage was lower and the light show gave us some great pictures.

The head liners for the King Tuts arena were the Pixies. I was really looking forward to seeing them and they didn’t disappoint.

Saturday started cloudy and rain was forecast. Thankfully other than a few showers It stayed fairly dry until late on. Some fans had their ponchos at the ready though.

The head liner for the main stage was Calvin Harris. We had a tip that Will Smith was going to join him on stage at the end of his set. I thought this was unbelievable but when I got to the stage we could see a microphone stand. I started to get excited and think that It might actually happen. I was disappointed that I would miss It because we are only allowed In for the first three songs. Next thing a guy walked on stage and I realised It was him. My camera wasn’t even at the correct setting, by the time I got It sorted he left the stage. Luckily I managed to get a few shots of him. It was a shame he never sang but It was one of my best TITP highlights of all time. It was just so unexpected and bizarre.

Unusually we were allowed back In for the last ten minutes where Will was going to join Calvin behind the decks.

Seeing the bands is great, but what makes T In The Park special are the fans. Over the weekend I got some great shots of them having the party of their lives.

So that was my T, It was great seeing all the old faces again and meeting some new ones. It will be sad to leave Balado but I can’t wait to see what It will be like next year at the new location.
