Eric Burdon at the Royal Albert Hall

I got sent to the Royal Albert Hall to photograph the ex-Animals lead singer. I wasn't sure what to expect but it was very good actually. Unfortunately, it was an all-seater with a low stage so the photographers were required to kneel and bloody hell did my legs hurt afterwards!

Keeps you fit this photography lark!

PS: I'm anticipating a lovely relationship between the green in the image and green in the blog design when I post this...

Portishead's Beth Gibbons

Portishead's Beth Gibbons, originally uploaded by ben-yacobi.com.

I've started providing some images on a casual basis to a picture agency. The first gig they sent me to was Portishead last week. Not exactly the easiest task - see that pose that Beth is holding in this picture? Yup, that was it. That's all she did. This and occassionally turn so she was completely facing backwards. Ah well, maybe, just maybe, you'll see this is Rolling Stone Magazine.

But probably not.
