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 live music during busy recordings for television.
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. Live music performances recorded in intimate settings. I’m watching for patterns and fleeting moments.
Live music photography was where my photography career began. 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 camera and, over a few years, taught myself my craft.
