Live music photography and performance photography
I take photographs of musicians, dancers and performers, capturing their energy and professionalism, for their publicity, for producers and for press. This often combines with my experience in a broadcast environment, photographing public performances or live music during busy recordings for television.
Live music photography was where my photography career began. The adrenaline-fuelled ‘three songs, no flash’ in dark photo pits, jostling for an angle in front of a baying festival mob. Fast-moving, unpredictable people in intermittent, ever-changing lighting.
During my time at the BBC, I was lucky enough to have access to household names at T in the Park and Celtic Connections, and indie bands in weekly radio sessions. I picked up a new-fangled digital camera and, over a few years, taught myself my craft. My media career means I’m not star-struck or nervous around big names. I can comfortably work in production environments, backstage and front-of-house.
I am based in Glasgow and work all over the UK. Fill in this contact form, call me on 07710 777121, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to tell me what you’re working on so I can help you promote your band or production.
