Ivan Ward Photography
My interest in Entertainment photography started 21 years ago. It started because of a group called CARNAVAL MAGIC. They played in the Showboat at Butlins (Funcoast World) Skegness and are four of the most talented musicians you could ever wish to meet and I wanted to be part of that. However, I can not play an instrument (although I am thinking of learning to play the guitar or Keys!!!). I can't sing and I most certainly cannot dance, so I thought I would use the skill I have in photography to still be part of the entertainment world.
Below you will find a small slide show containing photographs taken of Carnaval Magic in the Showboat at Butlins Funcoast World Skegness in 1997, a photograph taken at a reunion gig which took place in Skegness at The Vine Hotel back in June 2007 and a photograph taken this year (April 2016) at Southview Hotel, Skegness at a reunion gig for my wife's 30th Birthday Party and our 5th Wedding anniversary. A good time was had by all.
You will also find in the Slide show photographs of the band member's and two promo photographs, the promo photographs have been kindly provided by my friends and Carnaval Magic Fans Tony & Julie Prentice.
We live in hope that there will be further reunion gigs in the future.
