BANDS, GIGS & SHOWS

As a lover of live music, I love to support new bands with my camera

As soon as I got my first Nikon¬†one of my biggest pleasures became using it at gigs and to support young bands. A wedding photography needs to take time off, you know! Living in Haywards Heath, near Brighton, at the time meant an endless of supply of gigs to go to, with young and enthusiastic bands who were penniless but extremely cool. As a supporter of the arts in general, and music in particular, it wasn’t hard to shoot some great gigs – my pay being free entry, a few beers and sometimes my train money.¬†

I still shoot gigs – not as often, but with the same enjoyment. I have had the pleasure of seeing my work on a few album covers, and my videos getting a few hits on YouTube too.

If you are interested in obtaining prints of my gig photos, or want me to work with your band, either in the gig setting or in creating art work for your album, then please contact me. I still try hard to be supportive, and will be as economical as I can be in support of musical talent.
I’m here to help you create your image, by creating great images!
See below, a number of favourite bands, including Bastille, Polly & the Billets Doux, Errol Linton, Kings Mews, Bloom/Beautiful Word, Esperanza Spalding, King King, The Paul Shearing Trio, The New York Staff Band of the Salvation Army, Paloma Faith, Sculptures, Fresh like Dixie, Suzi Quatro, Martin Turner and many more.
