They Can Be So Expensive!!

 

Hi

I hope you are all enjoying the few days of sun we are getting here in Ireland (mid July 2021) as I am at the moment. Normally July is frantic with weddings as it is possibly the most popular month for couples as you have the best chance of good weather, schools are off and people coming from abroad can combine a couples wedding into part of their summer holiday plans. 

So with a little extra time that I have compared to most July's I wanted to explain why wedding photography can be one of the more expensive items on a couples list when planning a wedding and how to pick a good one and get the best value for your money. From the outset I am obviously biased but I hope to give an impartial view of what a wedding photographer does which might help explain the cost and when picking a wedding photographer some guidance on how to avoid the cowboys. 

When a couple is planning a wedding they have the choice of getting a friend to do it or for all the guests to share their images with the couple and then they can pick the best or if they choose to hire a wedding photographer they will see they need a budget anywhere between €400 and €4000. You can see what I charge here Wedding Photography Packages and Prices

 

Option 1: Friends and Family Doing the Photos at your Wedding

Why Hire a Professional Wedding Photographer? Do you need a professional Wedding Photographer?Why Hire a Professional Wedding Photographer?Do you need a professional Wedding Photographer? Maybe a Friend Can Do It!

Let's start with the family and friends option. You're thinking I am going to knock this but I'm not!. It is a perfectly valid option. We are in the middle of a pandemic and lots of people are hurting financially so budgets can be tight. Couples also sometimes want a small intimate wedding and the memory of the day is enough.

The difference between getting a professional and having a friend (Assuming they are not a pro wedding photographer....then you've struck gold) do the photography is this. The friend may have attended a lot of weddings as a guest but wouldn't have the experience of a professional. They will turn up and capture what is happening and will likely get some nice shots. They wouldn't know the pitfalls of what can go wrong. For Example in church weddings it is very important to speak to the priest and ask where they are comfortable for the photographer to go. I have had every answer from "Do what you need to do" to "Don't step past this point" and everything imbetween.  

After the ceremony is the time for Family Photos. I have yet to meet a family that doesn't have a good proportion of the guests roll their eyes at this point. They're having a drink and having fun and the dreaded photographer is now going to ruin their buzz. A pro will deal with this in good humor and in their stride and get all the shots needed quickly so everyone can get back to the fun. An amateur will take longer and will lack the experience of getting people into position to get the shot done quickly.

After the family photos usually the couple will get some portraits done alone. Again a professional photographer will have picked a nice spot and will get the shots done quickly and get the couple back to the party.

Later in the evening when the dancing starts most amateur equipment can't handle dark rooms with flashing lights and guests dancing. We have all seen the blurry, grainy images on social media. This is the most challenging part of the day from a photography point of view and only the best equipment will produce a satisfactory result. 

After the wedding the friend may give you the cards out of the camera or download them for you and send them to you. A professional will curate the images to select the best ones and then individually edit the ones chosen to bring out the best in them. This is the most time consuming part of photographing a wedding and producing a professional looking result.

If you understand the above and appreciate a friend is unlikely to produce the quality a professional will and are happy with that then go for it.


Option 2: Hiring a Professional Wedding Photographer

Why Hire a Professional Wedding Photographer? Not Everything Might Go To Plan On Your Wedding Day but You Might Get a Great Photo From It With a Professional Photographer on Your SideWhy Hire a Professional Wedding Photographer?Not Everything Might Go To Plan On Your Wedding Day but You Might Get a Great Photo From It With a Professional Photographer on Your Side

Not everything might go to plan on your wedding day but if you decide to hire a professional wedding photographer you should be guaranteed picking someone with great experience, great testimonials and a large portfolio of previous work to give you comfort in your choice. It is hard to hide on the internet these days so if you do a little research you can weed out the cowboys.

6 Steps to Picking a Great Wedding Photographer

Step 1: Shortlist 5 photographers that you have seen and like their work

Step 2: Email them and check availability on your date (Tip: If someone takes forever to reply to an email beware as you don't want the stress that can produce close to a wedding)


Step 3: Check Independent Testimonials: All photographers will put great testimonials on their own website. Check testimonials on their Google My Business page, Facebook Page, Weddingsonline.ie etc These will give you a more complete picture of who you are dealing with

Step 4: Get a detailed package and price list. Understand exactly what you are paying for. Some photographers bundle everything into a package (Eg 2 photographers, a main album for the couple, parents albums etc) Some offer the photography as a stand alone and you can add on the extras. Don't pay for anything you don't want just because it is part of the package. Ask if it can be reduced if you don't need everything offered.

Step 5: View several full wedding galleries they have done. If you are considering a package that will produce 300 images then ask to see a gallery from a similar wedding with 300 images. Don't accept a highlights gallery of 50 or 60.

Step 6: Have a chat. The couple will spend  a lot of time with the photographer on the day. Make sure you get on. This will give you confidence and help you relax on the day which in turn helps the photographer get the best shots. If you are happy with all the above then you are probably ready to hire your photographer

 

Always Make Sure When Hiring a Wedding Photographer

1. Get everything agreed in writing. A professional will insist on it anyway
2. Understand what you are paying for. This should always be in the contract or booking form
3. Understand what happens if something goes wrong. EG is the deposit refundable or can it be transferred to a new date

4. Great Independent Testimonials. (Hint: On my own website I can write whatever i want)
5. Good communication from the photographer. Personally I think 24 hours to answer an email is plenty and can often be a lot less. Silences can cause stress to couples which can be easily avoided

 

Things to avoid in Hiring A Wedding Photographer

1. Anyone who guarantees a turnaround within a few days. Individually editing hundreds of images can be done in a couple of days but it is not advised.
2. Anyone who does not offer post production on the images.
3. Anyone who tries to find out the size of your wedding or budget before giving you a price. If you want a photographer from prep until the 1st dance it makes little difference to the photographer if there is 25 guests or 250 guests
4. Vague testimonials. We have all seen them on websites of all kinds
5. Only being shown highlights galleries
6. When a contract/booking form with terms and conditions attached is not offered

So Why Can Hiring a Professional Wedding Photographer Be So Expensive

Hire a Professional Wedding Photographer and Get Amazing Images. An Investment for Yourself and Future GenerationsHire a Professional Wedding Photographer and Get Amazing ImagesAn Investment for Yourself and Future Generations

So bringing it back to the cost of all this. I am going to ignore all the items usually trotted out such as equipment, insurance, fuel etc and base it on the number of hours put into a wedding.

A professional wedding photographer will spend at least a couple of hours dealing with the couple before the day including emails, meetings, sending contracts and showing previous work etc. On the day there is usually an hours traveling time each way to and from the wedding. For a full day prep could start at 10:30am and the first dance can easily start at 10:00pm with the photographer leaving at 10:30pm. So this is 16 hours work in total which is what most people think the wedding photographer does for their money. I wish :) 

After the day the photographer will upload and back up all the images. Then the fun begins. Typically a full day wedding will produce between 1600 - 2000 images. The first job is to bring that number down to what amount you said you would deliver. For me that is normally around 350. This takes approximately 2-3 hours. Then each of the 350 images needs to be edited individually. No matter what presets a photographer uses an image will always look better going in and individually editing it. Even if each image takes 2 minutes to edit that is another almost 12 hours work. So in total for a full day wedding a photographer will put in approximately 30 hours work. So if you divide the price of your package (After you take out albums/USB Boxes etc) and divide it by 30 you will see why wedding photography can be expensive

So with all that in mind why do some photographers charge €400 and some €4000. Well let's start with the €400. It can be an option. Most photographers were there at the start of their career. I certainly was. I was a professional photographer that worked for magazines and newspapers and corporate clients but had never done weddings and at the time I advertised a package outlining I had no wedding photography experience but showed the quality of other work I had done. I got a few bookings from couples that weren't going to have a photographer but took a chance. They got a budget package and I got the start of a wedding portfolio. So don't rule it out but understand there is a risk involved.

Next you have the majority of  Wedding Photographers that charge between €1100 and €1700 for a full day from prep until the first few dances. The difference can be in the level of experience they have. How much they are in demand and is there any extras included in the package such as a luxury wooden box for the USB key or a significant amount more images delivered etc

Then there is the a the group that charge over €2000. These can vary from a photographer that has a day job and wants to limit the amount of weddings they shoot during the year as it is a supplement to a full time job. Simple law of economics, price goes up and demand goes down and they are happy to hold out for the couples that really love their work and are happy to pay a premium for it.

In this group there are also photographers that are in very high demand with decades of experience and have worked their price up to this point and know the amount of weddings they want to shoot in a year and have delivered quality work to couples for that time and new couples are happy and confident in the service and quality they will get. In this group you will also usually find it will include a second shooter, albums and prints of some sort.

Clontarf Castle Wedding Pre Covid Dee and Pauric February 2020 https://www.simonpearephotography.com/blog/2021/6/Clontarf-Castle-Wedding-Restrictions-Are-Lifting

Clontarf Castle Wedding Dee & Pauric 
Looking Back to Look Forward

 

Hi

I wanted to revisit some weddings that happened pre-covid to remind ourselves what times were like back then and what life will hopefully be like again quite soon. This was a wedding that I shot in Clontarf Castle in Dublin in late February 2020 and was a typical Irish wedding.  Looking through the images now it is amazing to see everyone together enjoying the day. No social distancing, no masks, no hand sanitiser and large HSE yellow signs informing us how to keep safe in a pandemic. How lucky we all were and probably didn't realise it.

Another strange thing was I was on holiday in San Francicso in January when I got an email from Dee. Remember foreign holidays!! The amazing Wedding Singer Laura O'Neill  gave Dee my details as she was looking for a photographer for her wedding in February. As I was away and with the time difference and patchy wifi it was a challenge to arrange all the details but we got there.

The couple had to change their plans at the last minute and were having their wedding ceremony in Clontarf Castle with the Everyday Priestess Rev Medbh Boyle conducting the ceremony. It was originally meant to be in a local church but it had to be changed the week before the wedding. Their theme was black & white. Despite all the changes everything went off without a hitch and was a fabulous day. You can see the full article on weddingsonlie.ie here

Looking back on this now and knowing the vaccination programme is powering ahead (I'm getting my second jab on Friday) and restrictions are lifting. 50 guests will be allowed in July and hopefully 100 guests will be allowed in August normal might be returning and weddings like Dee and Pauric's will be on the way back. We are still waiting for the restrictions to be lifted on live music at weddings but there is a lot of pressure coming to argue for musicians to be allowed work once more. There seems to be little logic in allowing 100 people at a wedding and indoor dining and not having live music. I can feel a huge sigh of relief coming on from couples, venues and suppliers.

Getting Married in Ireland During the Covid 19 Pandemic

Hi everyone, I hope you are all keeping well and safe at the moment. Challenging and stressful times especially for couples who planned to get married this summer. While many have rescheduled some have decided to go ahead on the original date with a micro wedding and possibly having another larger celebration when it is safe to do so.

From the information the government has put out small weddings will be allowed to go ahead from July 20th with social distancing in Ireland. This is great news for couples that have been waiting to find out if they can go ahead with their wedding. While lots of couples have postponed to the end of 2020 or early 2021 there are still many who want to go ahead and get married on their original date regardless of the restrictions and then possibly having the big day in a years times with another ceremony and celebration. If you are in this situation and are worried that you will not be able to have it captured then I hope I can help.

Below I have put together a wedding photography package for micro weddings during the covid 19 pandemic. It is specifically for weddings of less than 20 people to cover the bride and groom, the celebrant, 2 witnesses and parents and grandparents of  the couple. It aims to capture your ceremony and bridal party/family photographs after the ceremony to capture your wedding day. During the ceremony and any photos after the ceremony social distancing will be maintained by staying the recommended distance (currently 2 meters) from the bridal party and guests at all times.

If you need any help rescheduling you wedding and you think I may be able to help please contact me at info@simonpearephotography.com or phone/Whatsapp +353 86 8137668 or if you are going ahead with a micro wedding and want to have it captured then please have a look at micro wedding photography package available for €399 from July 20th 2020 here Micro Wedding Photography Package During Covid 19 or if you want to see some more general information about my wedding photography please click Simon Peare Wedding Photographer

Hi

All weddings are special and some come along that you just smile all day even though you are meant to be working. Don't tell anyone :) Jacinta & Lorna's wedding was one of those days. The plan was to have the ceremony outdoors but even though it was in September the rain poured down. There were breaks in it but not enough for everyone to feel safe sitting outside. Kippure were brilliant and had Plan B put in place as soon as Jacinta and Lorna decided to have the ceremony indoors.

I was delighted when RSVP Magazine got in touch and wanted to highlight their wedding in their magazine and on their website. You can see it here Jacinta and Lorna RSVP

Some Advice About Rescheduling Your Wedding Due to Covid 19Rescheduling Your Wedding Due to Covid 19Sometimes things don't go to plan

 

Hi

I hope you are all keeping well and safe at the moment. All our lives have been turned upside down and planning a wedding at the best of times can be stressful without the added uncertainty of Covid 19.

If you are in the unfortunate position of having to reschedule your wedding due to the outbreak of Covid 19 I hope the below will point you in the right direction of making the rescheduling a little less stressful. All advice is purely my own opinion from my own life and conversations with couples and other suppliers over the last few weeks. I've divided it up into a few sections and probably won't cover everything. 

Do You Have To Reschedule Your Wedding?

As of April 6th the country is as close to lockdown with restrictions on a lot of movement. My guess would be when the restrictions are lifted they will be done gradually and possibly the last item to be lifted will be the pubs and large gatherings. So if your wedding is in April or May then I would bite the bullet and reschedule. Even if it is allowed to go ahead everyone will be on edge and guests may not want to attend particularly anyone that has elderly relatives.

If your wedding is in June then I would wait until the next review of the restrictions by government which will most likely be the end of this week. If the restrictions stay the same or increased I would look at rescheduling a June wedding.If you are a July wedding I would wait for another couple of weeks. If you do have to reschedule I would suggest having a winter wedding or planning for the first half of next year. If you postpone for a few weeks you don't want to have to postpone again.

If You Do Have To/Want To Reschedule Your Wedding

So you've bitten the bullet and decided to reschedule. Before you do anything read the contract with your venue and other suppliers and talk to them about your concerns. They are probably expecting the call so don't worry about that bit. Ask your venue about what is involved. Will they give you a similar new date. EG if you had a Saturday will they give you another Saturday. If it's not available what are your options. Can you change venue and get your deposit back if a suitable date is not available. If you move to a weekday is the price lower? Is there a choice of dates?

When you have a possible new date then get in touch with your other suppliers and see if they are available for the possible new date. They will want to fulfill it but depending on the supplier they may not be available. A supplier for your cake can service several weddings in one day so might not be an issue but for the band or the photographer they can only be in one place at a time so if they already have a booking there may be an issue. An experienced supplier should be able to put you in touch with possible alternatives for you to choose from. Deposits are normally not refundable but most suppliers will transfer them to a new date. Any money paid over and above the deposit should be refundable but please check your contract with your suppliers

If you have bought accessories for your original wedding date with the date written on the items why not still use them. Make a thing of it. No need to spend the money twice. There will be extra cost in changing so may as well save a little bit

Let Your Guests Know

As soon as you have decided to reschedule let your guests know as soon as possible. Flights and hotels may be booked. Most accommodation can be refunded and if the airline cancels their flight then they would be entitled to a refund. There may also be guests just about to book so you may be able to save them the expense.

On The New Wedding Day

The new wedding day will be different from what you originally planned. Some guests might not be able to make the new day. The band/Photographer you had your heart set on might be different. Try not to let that worry you. Focus on your day and your partner. It is your day and everyone there is there for you and to make your day as good as it possibly can.

The Bigger Picture

It is terrible that you are in the position that you have to postpone your wedding and all the stress and possible cost involved. However, you will still get married and all the current restrictions are to keep us all safe. Just as an example I was meant to be in Spain this week and if the restrictions were not in place I would have considered going which would have been a terrible idea. The restrictions are to keep us all safe. If we don't catch the virus then we won't spread the virus. So weddings is the most important day in someones life but at the moment we need to look after each other. The wedding day will happen and hopefully all this will be a bad memory.

The Contemporary Digital Wedding Photography Package from €799. Affordable Wedding Photography in Dublin, Meath, Kildare, Louth, Wicklow and IrelandThe Contemporary Digital Wedding Photography Package from €799Affordable Wedding Photography in Dublin, Meath, Kildare, Louth, Wicklow and Ireland

 

The Contemporary Digital Wedding Photography Package is a very popular package. It is especially popular for couples with large bridal parties as it captures all the preparation in the morning before the ceremony. It is fantastic to see all the bridesmaids looking after every detail to make everything perfect for the bride to be. This can be a nervous time for any bride and to have her friends and family around her as she is getting ready can be a great source of comfort.


Most people are also not used to having a photographer following them around all day and the preparation time can settle any nerves with the camera. I usually say as soon as I arrive in the morning to everyone "please ignore me and pretend I am not here". Often brides think they have to pose or act in front of the camera and the exact opposite is what I try to achieve. Natural relaxed images of the bride with her friends and family can create precious and real memories. Nobody wants to remember feeling awkward as the photographer had a great idea for a great shot! My job as a wedding photographer is to capture your wedding day, not to create it.

So onto all the details of this wedding package.

Last month I was asked to go up to Lucan Boxing Club to photograph some of John Joyce's last training camp before his fight in Boston on  March 16th the day before St. Patrick's day. Not only was John there with his team but local teenagers where there training as well.
John was kind enough to get into the ring and throw some punches at me! We got this nice shot from it

A new year rolls around and a lot of couples planning their wedding. Possibly after getting engaged at Christmas or on Valentine's Day. After setting a date the scramble is on to arrange everything else for their upcoming wedding. My advice is always plane your wedding well in advance. This gives you the best pick of suppliers and you can make decisions with a calm head.

So what should be first on your wedding checklist. I would suggest get the wedding venue sorted. This gives you a fixed time and place to arrange everything else. No point in arranging something hair, make-up, flowers, bands, photographer, videographer from suppliers in Donegal and then pick a venue in Kerry.

After that I would suggest the wedding band and/or DJ, your wedding photographer and videographer if you decide to have one. The more in advance you book your suppliers the better choice you will have. 

So if you are picking a wedding photographer in Dublin or anywhere Ireland you have a great selection to choose from. All unique with different styles and for different budgets. For 2019 I have introduced a new wedding photography package called "The Essential" for smaller weddings or for couples who want the main events of the day captured or for couples working on a tight budget.

Weddings can be costly and especially for young couples starting out the cost of a wedding could be the same amount of money as a deposit on their first home together so it is sensible to cover the essentials and not go too crazy with the budget. Below is a description of what you will get if you decide on this package. 

 

The Essentials Wedding Photography Package
Wedding Ceremony to Arriving at the Reception - From only €679

If you working on a budget or having a smaller more intimate wedding then why not choose the Essentials Wedding Photography Package. This package covers the most important parts of your Wedding Day.

Pre-Wedding Day Consultation to Discuss Your Requirements
Wedding Ceremony Photographs
Bridal Party Photos, Group Photos and Bride and Groom photos.

So you have an event or wedding in Dublin and need a photographer. What do you do? Google and hope for the best. Well here are my 5 top tips for what to do when looking for a professional wedding or event photographer in Dublin. If you have time after reading below please visit my Wedding Photography Page or my Event Photography Page for even more information

Tip Number One - How To Research The Best Photographer For Your Event in Dublin

So if you have never hired a professional photographer before then the easiest option is to use Google. Now the question is what should you Google. If you search for a photographer then the number of results will be mind boggling. Try to define your event. For example if it is a Wedding and you live in Dublin then try goggling "Wedding Photographer Dublin". If your event is a corporate event then try searching for "Corporate Event Photographer Dublin". You will still have loads of professional photographers in Dublin to choose from but at least you have narrowed the search. 

Tip Number Two - Does The Photographer's Previous Work Meet Your Expectations

Now you have narrowed your list of professional photographers in Dublin to a manageable few. Next thing to do is to check out their website. "What am I looking for?" I hear you ask. Well, look at their previous work at similar events to your own. Consider if the photographs produced are similar to what you require. If you need social shots of the attendees enjoying themselves at your event then you don't need a photographer that only does landscapes. Also check if the website is updated regularly. This shows they are active, in demand and take pride in their work. A website that is updated often will also give you an idea of the consistency of a photographer's work. You can also look at images the photographer has produced that may be on different subjects than you require. This will give you a sense of how adaptable the photographer can be in different situations. At this stage you should pick two or three photographers that you like so you can make contact with them.

Tip Number Three - Make Contact With The Potential Photographers

Now you have a very short list of potential photographers for your event and it is time to make contact with them. Whatever your preference may be, contact the photographer by email or phone to discuss your requirements. Personally I prefer the phone as you should immediately see if you have a rapport with your potential photographer. Each wedding or event is different but the first question to ask is whether or not the photographer is available on the date you require. If the photographer is available then other good questions to ask include. How much will hiring a professional photographer cost? What is included in the price quoted? If you require physical prints of the photographs how much extra would this be? What can the images be used for?  How quick will the images be turned around? Even if your wedding or event is in Dublin confirm if traveling expenses are extra or included.

Tip Number Four - Make A Decision And Pick Your Photographer

After you have been in touch with the potential photographers you can now decide who to pick. Price is always a good place to start. If you are happy with the quality of each potential photographer's work and they all fit your requirements then the cheapest quote is always very tempting. However before diving in consider whether a more expensive quote is giving you something extra and does it represent value for money. Also consider how the photographer considered your requirements and how adaptable they were to meeting them. Good communication between a photographer and their client is essential to produce the images you need. It can be better to pay a little extra if you feel you have a rapport with the photographer you are hiring. If you are choosing a photographer for your wedding then consider you will have several meetings with them over a period of months to get all the details correct so dealing with somebody you feel comfortable with and have confidence with is essential.

Tip Number Five - Put It In Writing

To avoid misunderstandings with what is required it is always best to put your expectations in writing and ask the potential photographer to confirm they understand what is expected. It doesn't need to be drawn up by a team of lawyers or anything like that. A simple email can do. If the event has a larger budget such as a wedding a contract may be advisable. The photographer may be able to provide this. If they do then read it carefully and get advice if you feel you need it. Hopefully after all your careful research and discussion it will not be needed, but just in case there is a misunderstanding then you can refer to it. If you are not dealing with the photographer directly on the day of your wedding or event then forward the requirements to the person that will be and let the photographer know who the point of contact is. 

I hope the above has pointed you in the right direction for choosing a professional photographer in Dublin but please contact me if you have any questions at all.

Till the next time thanks for reading.

Limited Edition Fine Art Photograph to Commemorate 40 Years Since Elvis Presley Died https://www.simonpearephotography.com/blog/2017/8/limited-edition-fine-art-photograph-to-commemorate-40-years-since-elvis-presley-died On August 16th 1977 Elvis Presley died at his home Graceland in Memphis Tennessee. He was just 42 years old. For half of his life he was probably the most famous person on the planet. Now 40 years later he is still instantly recognisable and part of our popular culture. In Ireland only this year the National Lottery started using his song "If I Can Dream" in their advertising campaigns. Whether is the young 50's Elvis, The 60's movie star or the 70's Las Vegas superstar his image is iconic.

In November last year I was lucky enough to be able to visit Memphis and Graceland to experience this corner of Rock and Roll history. It is amazing to see even 40 years after Elvis died that people from all over the world come to visit his "gaff" (Irish translation for "house"). Although he was born in Tupelo Elvis moved to Memphis when he was thirteen that is where he called home for the rest of his life. Memphians are very proud of their famous son and the fact he stayed in Memphis and didn't move to the Hollywood Hills or some other celebrity hang out. 

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of his passing I am presenting a limited edition of the below photograph depicting Elvis' fans graffiti at the gates of his home Graceland in Memphis. The edition is going to be only 99 16x20 inch prints done on archival quality 308gsm photo rag paper. Each print will be signed and numbered. A nice gift for the Elvis fan in your life :) I hope you enjoy it.

From Elvis Presley Boulevard Memphis Tennessee https://www.simonpearephotography.com/blog/2017/7/from-elvis-presley-boulevard-memphis-tennessee So time to leave New Orleans managing not to get murdered or arrested. Apparently there are 27 other cities in the world that you are more likely to get murdered but number 28 was as dangerous as I was willing to go for the moment. Anyway, it was off to Memphis, home of the Blues, Beale Street, Sun Studios, Elvis and Graceland. Where to start?

After a ten-hour train ride from New Orleans the first stop was the hotel to drop the bags and figure out a plan. The hotel had a free shuttle bus into the centre of the city. Well when I say free the driver hustled me out of 5 Euro but that's another story. Beale Street was the first stop. The police had barriers on all the roads to allow everyone to walk on the street.

The city is proud of its musical heritage. Streets have been renamed after Elvis & BB King. Everywhere you go you are reminded of their musical history. Even stepping out of the elevator in the Carlton hotel we were greeted with a six-foot picture of Elvis in the seventies. Everywhere on Beale St. was either a music venue or a souvenir shop. You could feel the music in the city. In New Orleans sometimes you felt the music on Bourbon Street was sometimes just for the tourists. In Memphis it felt like the musicians were playing for themselves and we were allowed join in the party.

As it was the first night in town a lot of it was spent bar hopping trying to find the best places. They were all as good as each other it just depended on the type of music you wanted to listen to. Honky Tonk, Blues, Rhythm & Blues, Soul, Funk and even 2 guys doing a piano duel for tips from the audience. They would only play a request if it was written on a 5 dollar bill.

The below photograph was taken at the famous gates of Graceland where we decided to go the next morning. For as long as Elvis lived at Graceland there has been a tradition of writing messages on the outside wall. You could spend many hours just reading the messages from fans from all over the world who have made the journey. It is fascinating to see the amount of different places people have come from. Even if you're not a fan you would feel the love people have for Elvis even now almost 40 years after he passed.

If you click on the image below it will bring you to the gallery with a few more photographs from Memphis. I hope you enjoy and Keep on Rock'n

Singing and Dancing the Blues in New Orleans https://www.simonpearephotography.com/blog/2017/6/singing-and-dancing-the-blues-in-new-orleans So after a day of being immersed in the French Quarter of New Orleans it was time to be immersed in some music and some bourbon. To Bamboula's 514 Frenchman St we went. There was a kicking three piece Blues band playing in the corner. The beer was flowing and the music was pumping.

The main man was playing to the crowd and encouraging people to get up and dance and so they did. Young or old it didn't really matter. Nobody seemed to have any inhibitions about getting up and shaking their stuff in front of the crowd.

The below photograph was taken late in the evening, well after midnight. The crowd was thinning out, the night was getting a bit cooler and the dancers a little bit more inebriated. The girl on the floor didn't care. She was going to enjoy herself. The girl at the table looking on looks a little envious maybe wishing she had the same confidence to just get up and dance. No judgement, I wasn't dancing either!

The blue tint is a nod to Lloyd Russell Sherman. His photograph of Elvis Presley in 1956 was used on the cover of a compilation of blues songs recorded by Elvis called "Reconsider Baby".  Check it out. As we were heading to Memphis next (The home of the blues and Elvis) it seemed appropriate

As always if you click on the photo it will bring you to the gallery from New Orleans. Enjoy :)

New Orleans Dixieland Jazz at Halloween - USA Travels Pt 2 https://www.simonpearephotography.com/blog/2017/6/New_Orleans_Dixieland_Jazz_at_Halloween_USA_Travels_Pt_2 So American Travels Part 2

After a few days visiting friends in Mobile and before heading to Memphis we stopped a few days in New Orleans. It was Halloween and from all accounts New Orleans is a party town at the best of times but Mardi Gras and Halloween are extra crazy. It didn't disappoint. All day every day the streets were filled with people in Halloween costumes. Everything from Jesus to Darth Vader. It was a place where anything could happen and it did.

You can see the city is still suffering from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Lots of poverty and depravation can be seen once you are outside the French Quarter. You wouldn't blame the locals if they decided to leave their city for somewhere new as their government seems to have neglected them but they have a fighting spirit and are proud of their heritage. A big part of this is the music that echoes through the streets day and night.  

The below photo was taken on the way back to the hotel one night when these musicians just pitched up on Bourbon Street, put a cardboard box in front of them for tips and started playing the most amazing Dixieland Jazz. There was no Galway Girl or Sweet Home Alabama here. You could see this was the music they were brought up on and they were now carrying the torch for the next generation. To these guys it was probably just another night but for the onlookers it was a piece of New Orleans magic they had come to see. Unforgettable!

Please click on the photo to see a few more shots of them. Enjoy!

Some American Travels - Part 1 - Montgomery Alabama https://www.simonpearephotography.com/blog/2017/5/some-american-travels---part-1---montgomery-alabama Last year I was able to visit some of the southern states of America in the run up to the Presidential Election. After flying into Atlanta, Georgia the first stop was Montgomery Alabama. In 2016 it was a very quiet town but it has a remarkable history. From 1954 to 1960 Martin Luther King Jr was the pastor in the Baptist Church on Dexter Avenue (Pictured Below). It was here he organised the Montgomery Bus Boycott where Rosa Parks an African American woman refused to give up her seat to a white person in December 1955.

It was also here where Martin Luther King Jr in 1965 spoke to 25,000 people to demonstrate African Americans desire to exercise their voting rights. There are a few more photos in the gallery if you click on the picture below.

The Hags with the Bags on Dublin's Lower Liffey Street, just over the hapenny bridgeon the north side of the liffey.

Very laid back city with loads of history and only a direct flight (from everyone's favourite airlaine) away :). The locals were very helpful and friendly. So much so my dreadful french wasn't an issue. I'm sure my French teachers would be either hanging their heads in shame or laughing their heads off!??

Dom & Dorte Kelly Family Fundraiser https://www.simonpearephotography.com/blog/2015/4/dom-dorte-kelly-family-fundraiser I had the pleasure of attending a fundraiser for friends of mine that have had a hell of a bad run of luck. In typical musician fashion a gig was organised to raise some funds to help repair their house which has been infested with a fungus that's not covered by their insurance. This is just one of the issues they have had to deal with recently. Over €2000 was raised on the night thanks to the generous support from Dom & Dorte's friends

I took a few pictures on the night and any of the proceeds from sales of the images will go to help Dom & Dorte. Click on the image below and it will bring you to the gallery.

All support is very gratefully received. Many thanks.

Vintage American Cars in Cuba https://www.simonpearephotography.com/blog/2015/2/vintage-american-cars-in-cuba Yes, inevitable, predictable but still fascinating to see cars made over 50 years ago being the main form of transportation in Cuba and particularly Havana. You will see Fords, Buicks, Pontiacs, Chevrolets, Desotos, Cadillacs and many other vintage American Muscle cars from the 50's & 60's. Some barely held together some lovingly restored. You will also see the odd Lada the Russians donated as well. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
