Going to Live Music gigs is something I really enjoy. Music is a fairly constant companion in my life, and whilst getting to concerts by internationally touring bands is a fairly rare occurrence, seeing friends perform locally and further afield is pretty regular.
Occasionally when I’ve gone to see friends perform at a gig, they’ve asked if it would be possible for me to capture some images of them playing too. I have far too many images to post them all here, so I have picked out just a few of my favourites from those gigs.
Black and White images work well for live music as the lighting/decor/situation is typically not great for photography and colour tends to blur edges instead of bringing out the details and drama.

Earlier this year the guy’s in Skindeep asked me to shoot the ‘Official’ band photo for the centre spread of their debut album ‘New Life’ – of course I was very happy to oblige – and they are very pleased with the result.
