I'm back at uni, and the academic preparations, my job in the Venue and the work for the Photography and Modelling Society have kept me busy throughout September. So for now I'm just posting some photos from the Welcome Ball at the University of Kent, with Cricket Lane, City Girls, Fake That, and Coolio.
I present you a selection of 9 hours worth of photographs from last weekend's University of Kent Summer Ball 2008, organized by Kent Union. The three huge marquees hosted four bars, two stages, tatoo artists, studio photographers, casinos, 2 main stages and more. The main acts included top DJs like Colin Murray and Fearne Cotton on the DJ stage, and the Vengaboys and the Wombats on the main stage. All in all a packed evening - even though we were two photographers sharing the workload I didn't get a chance to grab dinner.
The Fashion Show promotional video which Lee Francis filmed for the UKC Photography and Modelling Society got quite a bit of attention. As a result, he was recruited to also film a promotional video for the University of Kent Summer Ball 2008. I was at the filming location, one of the exam halls at the UKC, to help with the lighting and to take some 'making of' pictures, which you can see above. Oh, and I also pushed the caddie for the zoom effects, which led to the Ben Hur photo (taken by David Cater).
There's no freshers' week without the traditional Freshers' Ball. For this year's line-up, Kent Union managed to get hold of BootyLuv, Scouting for Girls, xFM and the Venue's resident DJs.
The Union decided to make some changes to the Venue over summer and I have to say that I love their new light equipment. Makes for some nice photographs :) Now I can't wait to see their interactive dancefloor in action.
If you want to see the photographs in print, be sure to grab a copy of the next edition of inQuire, out across campus on October 23rd.
