Another Brighton Gig Shoot – in Hove actually

Posted on 15th, August 2012

I did another shoot last week for The Beautiful Word and Kings Mews - basically because I didn't feel that I did justice to the bands themselves at the Blind Tiger Club last time.

From Haywards Heath, West Sussex to Silicon Roundabout (Old Street) via Stevenage, Hertfordshire, it was good to arrive...
