Last week I had the pleasure of taking photos of Hip Parade.

Hip Parade have just been confirmed as the support act for the UK arena Stereophonics tour and were quite rightly in very good spirits for the shoot.  They kindly gave me creative control over the concepts used in the shoot so here is what we got up to!

A relaxed start in the Rio Cafe…

Next was a fun take on the song ‘Getting Chased’ which is about growing up in Easterhouse.

Then onto the City Barbers where the lovely hairdressers actually gave one of them a free haircut!

Went a bit wider with this one to include the paper and chairs, not so much a press sort, rather something that could be used for album design.
