World Pipe Band Championships 2010/2011

These photos are from a while back, shot for the BBC for their website covering the World Pipe Band Championships in 2010 and 2011.  The brief gave me the opportunity to shoot with a lot of creative freedom, which I really enjoyed.  As you can see from the sample of some of my favourite images I’ve posted here, this included the pipe bands tuning up and performing, behind the scenes of making the television programme, people enjoying the event, and the odd animal or two in attendance!

Hope you enjoy looking at them, please remember that the copyright of these images is owned by the BBC, so don’t copy or use them without seeking consent from them first.  Thanks!

A few shots from this year’s programme launch.  I’ll be doing some more shooting for them over the festival period.

Pianist Steven Osborne after his performance – we weren’t allowed to shoot the artists during the performances, and had to be very fast to catch them just after they finished!
