“One of the most naturally gifted eyes for photography in the northeast and beyond. Captures, and understands, the live dynamic and energy of live bands every single time. Top fucking guy too.” Mykl Barton – Enter The Lexicon

“Had the pleasure of working with Graeme on the epic “Kylver” video, he is incredibly diligent, thoughtful, co-operative, easy to work alongside and his imagination and direction is tremendous, I am very much looking forward to our next adventure”  Mark Burns – Actor.

“I booked a set of band photos and I have to say he was one of the most open and creative photographers I’ve worked with. We spent time together scouting locations, and I felt very happy with the service and the end result!” Conor Humphrey – Ascension of Isaiah.


“Graeme has the eyes and heart to capture live music at it’s finest, plucking these intense moments of clarity and beauty out of chaos and madness. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know him travelling on the road too, and his down to earth approach brings an ease to situations that help both on and off the stage. There’s trust there, which is an accolade that makes him, easily, one of the best photographers I’ve ever worked with.”  – Aran Glover – We Are Knuckle Dragger


“As most musicians will admit there is nothing worse than seeing that camera pointed at you. Well maybe the moment you are going in for that almighty scissor kick on your way to your mid gig prowl along the bar top and “Gadzooks!” some wazzock with a camera is in your way ruining the vital flow in that 5/8 bit with the 64th note run. I can testify that whilst playing in front of Mr Blank i never noticed him not never nor once but he got all of the shots. A true ghost snapper that we can highly recommend.” Skronk – The Smokin’ Coconuts.

“Great shots, great prices, great guy…nothing more to say….the mans got skills! Wouldn’t bother going anywhere else. Sesh on!” – Tombstone Crow


“Graeme has been involved with www.neonlinemagazine.com since 2012 covering a variety of things including events like Screen-Con, shooting bands, gig reviews and anything else he can help with. His amazing portfolio will tell you more than my words ever will as his work really does speak for itself, just know that he is an absolute professional, very hard working, an incredible artist and without a doubt one of the most genuine people you will ever meet. I can’t recommend him more highly than I do and I know you would not be disappointed, no matter what you need him for, be it a wedding, a special occasion, an event or even just for some really cool photos, you will not find anyone better!” – Wayne Groves Editor NE Online Magazine
