Leeds megapost

August 31st, 2012

Spent last weekend picture editing and leading the official photo team at Leeds Festival which was really exciting and a bit surreal. Really happy with how it all came out, how hard we all worked and that I even got to shoot a little in between all the running around. Can’t believe it was all just beginning this time last week! Festivals always feel like a little school trip bubble, as if you’re there forever.

Fashion month starts next week (I’ll be in New York, London and Paris) so that’s the reason for the blog silence, I’ve been spending many hours with many spreadsheets planning stuff. Psyched to show you guys soon.

Kate Nash

Kieren and Kyle of The View

3/4 of Tribes

O.F.W.G.K.T.A.

Spector (playing the album on repeat since I got home, it’s dangerously good)

The Joy Formidable

Kasabian (being on stage in front of 80,000 people is some intense stuff, even if they’re not looking at you. I’m probably supposed to pretend to be cooler about this but it was really something and I feel so lucky that I got to do it because I had no idea how it would feel.)

    Awesome coverage, Kris! And I especially loved the candidness regarding being in front of 80,000 pairs of eyes while you were working. I would be shaking if I were ever on a stage like that, I’m sure of it!

  11. Your pictures are so great! I’ve been listening to Spector’s album on repeat since getting back from Reading and I’m still not sick of it, it IS dangerously good, I can’t even tell you why. x
