Live music photography and performance photography
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.
These days 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.
