Photography > Gig Photography

I’m really into a lot of types of photography but gigs are my absolute favourite thing to shoot!

I’m a huge music fan anyway and love going to gigs and discovering new bands, especially when it means supporting new and smaller bands.

Gig photography is so exciting because you have this challenge of trying to capture so much energy and the style of the music and the personality of the band or artist, and you literally only have a split second to get the perfect shot.

The band is always moving, the lighting is always changing, you can never know for sure what’s going to happen next. Plus, technically, it’s challenging because of the low lighting and how quickly you have to work! But that’s why it’s so much more satisfying when you get a great shot and that’s why I love it so much!
