One final blog for 2017!

Following on from A Year In Photographs 2016 and A Year In Photographs 2015 this year’s ‘A Year In Photographs’ brings together every photo, person, scenario and encounter in my camera roll from 2017! This year I went on adventures in Manchester, London, Loch Lomond & Machrihanish and Romania, Norway, Denmark & Sweden.

Along the way this year I got the chance to see Steps, Little Mix, Perfume Genius, Trentemoller, Lana Del Rey, Lolly, The Cheeky Girls, Peter Andre, Whigfield, Haddaway, Dr Albarn, 2 Unlimited, E Type, Culture Beat, Sash and Snap! I finally, after a 20 year wait, got to see the awesome AQUA live in Gothenburg and saw the Vengaboys live three times in one year. Bucket list complete!

Can I just say I was this close to Lene from Aqua?! She is my Cartoon Hero.

Jack and I met some more Drag Race All Stars in the guise of Alaska, Latrice Royale, Tatianna, Alyssa Edwards, Darienne Lake, Valentina and Courtney Act!

Another year, another graduation, this time from the University of Stirling!

I finally made some progress with writing, recording and producing My First E.P. which after a slight delay due to starting my new job as Lecturer in Music and Sound Production at a new college, will be released in the Spring of 2018. If you wanna have a listen to the instrumental demos, head on over to my Bandcamp or Soundcloud sites!

And then there’s the folk I spent the year with. Whether every day, every so often, from a distance or on a group chat that would most likely get us into some serious shit… they’re all special and I wouldn’t have them any other way!

Some old friends went on to pastures new, and some new amazing friends came in and I look forward to seeing what adventures we got up to in the A Year In Photographs 2018!

In the meantime, here is A Year In Photographs 2017! Hit play! Enjoy!
