Shot of the Day – Carl Cox at Summerdayze-Auckland


Hi all,

Featured above is a photo of the legendary Carl Cox taken by myself just minutes before he went on stage at Summerdayze-Auckland last night. And, below, is a shot of Carl and myself that was not taken by me and it shows. ;)

It was an absolute pleasure to meet Carl as I’ve been a fan of his work for a long time.

I was so excited to meet him all I could do was introduce myself, ask for some photos and then run away! LOL!  Nah! I wasn’t that bad really…

I chatted with him for a few minutes; asked about his visits to New Zealand – I found out there had been many; asked for a few candid shots and then pretty much left him alone to gather himself before his performance. I wasn’t trying to go hardcore journalist on him; I’d much rather just take photos of him, which I did, and enjoy the show!

As always, and this is just based on what I’ve seen in documentaries and YouTube videos, Carl put on a stellar performance! Having experienced him live for the first time I can clearly understand why he’s considered one of the world’s top DJs.

After Carl’s performance was over I managed to wrangle my way into the unofficial after-party at the Pyramid Lounge in Auckland’s CBD – there was an official one that Carl was not at – that Carl and a number of the other international DJs attended.

Just something to look out for…

I’ve heard it from a very reliable source that Carl will be vacationing here in New Zealand sometime this month. And, that he’ll be touring the country on a motorcycle as well as playing some shows along the way!

More news as I come by it and please do keep an eye out for more photos from and a brief review of Summerdayze-Auckland!

Kind regards
