Cannes Lions Facebook Photographer 2018

With May gone and the trip to Berlin now in the distance, June was looking to be a busy month. Cannes Lions Festival is held in June and Facebook were planning on making their presence felt.

I was attending for 10 days photographing on behalf of Facebook. This was going to be epic. I was Facebook’s official photographer. What a priviledge!! There were 17 crew, with myself being the only stills photographer alongside 16 other video production members. We had a whopping villa booked to house us all for the week, a swimming pool with BBQ, indoor games room, piano and games consoles.

Mini Lingfest 2016

Here are a few images of the day, there were loads more but can’t pop them all up on here. Also here are the links to the mobile music stage and ice cream van.
