01 – Recent Bands…

The first gig I photographed professionally was in October 2009 and since then I have photographed a variety of bands at a wide range of venues.  Around Camden, Islington, Shoreditch and Kilburn, every venue is different.  Personally, I’m not a believer in using ‘flash’ when doing live music photography.  It can be distracting to the performer(s) and it also has the potential to drown out some of the atmospheric stage lighting.  Sometimes though, when used appropriately and correctly, it can work to the photographer’s advantage.  Some venues are very dark; even on the stage, and I think these places are the best locations for any photographer to practice and test their technical abilities.  After all, I believe that testing conditions determine how good we really are.  A photographer can be in a studio all day long with full control over everything from lighting, backgrounds, props etc and not be tested.  On-location shoots, such as gigs are the ones that are always different and test me…plus they get my adrenaline going too.

Here is a selection of a few Live Music Photos that I’ve taken recently.
