“Script This Lincoln” Event Photography

Script This Lincoln, Photography by Pixelglo Photography

So I’m sat in the pub, and my good friend and “Script This Lincoln” Stage Manager Darren looks at me from across the table of fresh drinks, and and gives me the silent ninja two-handed “clicky camera” signal.

I know means that the next instalment of Script This Lincoln is around the corner, and an opportunity for me to take some stage photos!

It was another successful outing for the team behind Script This Lincoln, featuring 4 excellent scripts, performed so well by the actors.

1) Aspiration, by Simon Littlefield
2) Tremors, by Sarah Gordon
3) Tomatoes, by Joe Hayden
4) Shed Man, by Kevin Jones

I do enjoy attending these performances as you never really know what you’re going to get. Sometimes it’s a monologue read by a single actor or actress. Sometimes it’s a group of performers. Sometimes one of the group will climb onto the floor or spread themselves out across a series of chairs to help create the scene. Even though the only stage props tend to be chairs, I’m always kept on my toes when the script reading begins!

One of the script writers, Joe Hayden who wrote “Tomatoes”, and represented by Kay Hayden (@assidens), very kindly got in touch after the session. I was delighted to hear that they wanted to use some of the Script This Lincoln photos for his own promotional work.

I asked for a little bit about Joe, and Kay said, “Joe has been working with Lincoln based Red Dog Film for the past couple of years. Red Dog Film have an arm to their company called ReBrand. ReBrand supports young people, many with mental health needs and disabilities to develop their skills via film making. And Joe hosts the “What’s On Show” on Siren Radio on Friday afternoon.”

“Script This Lincoln was incredibly helpful and we chatted to one of the other writers Simon Littlefield, who writes for BBC Radio 4 ‘The News Quizz’. Simon was very encouraging to Joe and suggested that Joe submitted his work to the BBC new writers program.”

So it’s safe to say the event was a sucess all round! Here’s a few shots from the session…

Motorcycle Live 2015 Photography – Best Bikes In Show!

Yamaha YZF-R1 2016 Yellow

As the nights draw in and the gritting trucks start their midnight vigil, the biking world turns its eyes to the NEC in Birmingham, and Motorcycle Live 2015! Here’s a selection of photos from the first day, and my “best picks” of the latest machinery!

As I walked through the door of Motorcycle Live 2015, I was immediately greeted with some MotoGP delights in the form of Scott Redding’s 2015 Marc VDS Honda. It was a solid season for Scott, who needed a good half season to settle into the rasping Honda. I’m looking forward to seeing him ride the Pramac Ducati in 2016, and already he’s reporting positive progress in the off-season testing!

Accompanied by my Dad who’s a huge Kawasaki fan, we immediately ran to the Kawasaki area and had a good long look at the new ZX10. It does look a bit menacing doesn’t it?

Much to our delight, 2015 World SBK Champion Jonathan Rea had a short interview on the Kawasaki Stage!

Next up is the new face of the Kawasaki Z1000.

One for the more “laid back” of the biking world, the new Kawasaki VN1700 Voyager 2016. Sitting on this was like sitting is luxury sofa equipped with dials and vintage looking goodies! You can’t help but think of cruising down an open American freeway on this bike. One for the bucket list!

The Kawasaki H2R. Like something from a Batman film, this is the colossal turbocharged superbike, or hyperbike, drenched in carbon fibre goodness and winglets all round to help keep it light and on the road. In terms of “what you get for your money”, this isn’t too badly priced compared to other top level machines.

A little dose of vintage class for you, a Yamaha RD350!

And for something a little different, the eco-friendly BMW C Evolution!

The BMW S 1000R. You cannot fault the excellent build quality of these machines, and the attention to detail BMW puts into the all the components, and refinement of parts.

Now one of my favourites of the show, down to its clean vintage looking lines, and simplistic yet refined finish. The BMW R nineT.

A funky looking electric powered mountain bike featuring big chunky tyres we’re so accustomed to seeing with modern pedal-power!

Another personal favourite of mine, the gleaming and instantly recognisable Honda “Repsol” Fireblade, and in my opinion the more comfortable and “wrist friendly” of the super sports bikes!

My personal favourite stand of Motorcycle Live 2015 was taken by Yamaha. Especially their “Yard Built” selection of custom bikes on show, taking inspiration from yesterday, and releasing it for today on the top of modern technology. And the prices were amazing considering the customisation and uniqueness of these machines. Bravo Yamaha!

The Yamaha “Yard Built” 900 ‘Faster Wasp’ by Roland Sands Design is an instant winner. Awesome Kenny Roberts design inspirations make this a bike eager to carve up the roads.

I remember seeing this bike and thinking it was something I’d like to have in the event of a zombie apocalypse! Rough and coarse styling with a matt black finish give the impression this ride can handle anything. The Yamaha XJR1300 Guerilla Four.

One cannot have a Yamaha stand without the presence of The Doctor himself. Valentino Rossi’s 2015 Yamaha YZR-M1 MotoGP bike. I love seeing these at the shows, and noticing the little marks and scrapes and “fixes” around the bike as it’s weathered some of the fastest and most thrilling races. This season was one of the all-time greats of motorcycle racing with the likes of Marquez, Lorenzo, Rossi, and Innanone stealing the show. Roll on 2016!
