Futures at Norwich Arts Centre

Last week, the awesome Futures played Norwich Arts Centre, in support of their debut full length ‘The Karma Album’ (probably my favourite album of the year so far). Here’s a couple of photos from the gig.


Feeder | Norwich Waterfront

Feeder | Norwich Waterfront

Excuse me for reminiscing, but Feeder are a band that had a big impact on music photography for me. Having first seen them as a fan back in 1997, I got the opportunity to interview Grant Nicholas in 1998. At that point I was mainly interested in journalism (but wasn’t very good), and had a […]


We Are The In Crowd | Norwich Waterfront

On Sunday I photographed We Are The In Crowd, The Summer Set and Super Prime at Norwich Waterfront. It was a good show with three young pop punk American bands. As I couldn’t use flash, I had to make use of the limited available light (mostly red and purple), but managed to get a few […]


McFly at Norwich UEA

Last week I got to photograph McFly at Norwich UEA. It was interesting to see McFly playing a small venue, as they have maninly been doing arena shows for the last few years. Norwich was the smallest venue of the tour up to that point, at just under 1500 capacity. From a photography point of […]


Relentless Energy Drink Kerrang Tour 2012

Relentless Energy Drink Kerrang Tour 2012

Although this was the third gig I’ve photographed in the last few weeks, it’s the first I’ve managed to get round to blogging. Think this was my 6th time shooting the Kerrang! tour out of the last 7, and it’s a tour that I always enjoy, Kerrang! always manages to pull some great bands. Headlining […]


2011 Live Music Photography

I’m usually pretty rubbish at this, but thought I’d do a little look back post over the live photography I’ve taken this year. Overall I’ve probably done less live photography this year, than any of the last few years. Part of this is because I’ve been busy doing a lot of portrait and commercial work, […]


Zebrahead + Army Of Freshmen | Islington O2 Academy

This was the second date of the current Zebrahead & Army Of Freshmen tour I’ve managed to get along to. Both bands are great live, putting on a high energy pop rock show. I was down at the venue hanging out early, so took a few shots of the Zebrahead guys soundchecking, whilst I was […]


The Get Up Kids | Camden Underworld

Anyone who knows me well, will know that The Get Up Kids are my favourite band of all time. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve photographed them/seen them live. This show was moved down from Koko to Camden Underworld. Camden Underworld would be one of my favourite venues to see live bands, […]


Rise To Remain | Breed From Within | Norwich Arts Centre

This gig was at the end of a long day of photography, then guitar teching for my friends Fiorentina at Norwich Waterfront, before heading to Norwich Arts Centre to photograph Rise To Remain. I manage to get to the Arts Centre in time to catch the end of Bleed From Within, and get a few […]


Shadows Chasing Ghosts | Polar | Avosetta | Depth | Norwich Waterfront

Wednesday was the first time I’ve been at Norwich Waterfront since they added the new smaller venue in the Studio upstairs. Although the stage is small, this new venue provides a place for smaller bands to play who would be unable to pack out the bigger main room downstairs. It also helps the Norwich music […]


Deaf Havana + Not Advised + The First

Another photo catch up, this time from the start of July. Deaf Havana toured back in July previewing songs from their new album, which is due out later this year. Was interesting seeing the change in sound for the new record, and that the band have grown into a better live band over time. Support […]


JLS, Olly Murs & Alexis Jordan | Carrow Road | Norwich

Mainly covering rock music, I do sometimes find it odd taking photographs of pop bands, but when offered the chance to photograph JLS, Olly Murs and Alexis Jordan at Carrow Road, Norwich City Football Ground, I decided to go along.


Mayday Parade – Norwich Waterfront

Another catch up of photography from the past few months. This time is Mayday Parade from Norwich Waterfront on Tuesday 31st May 2011. This was the first time I got to see Mayday Parade live, and I was really impressed by their live performance. A great band to photograph, as they moved about and had […]


Framing Hanley | My Passion | The Head Start at Norwich Waterfront

Here are some of my favourite photos from the Framing Hanley, My Passion and The Head Start gig at Norwich Waterfront back in May. Was a really good show, with some energetic bands. Especially impressed by My Passion. At the bottom of the post is a slideshow with even more images.


Rolo Tomassi – Norwich Arts Centre

Rolo Tomassi have always been one of my favourite live bands to photograph, mainly because of the huge amount of energy they manage to maintain for the whole set. These photos were taken at their gig at Norwich Arts Centre back in May 2011.


The Blackout / Swellers / Hyro Da Hero

The Blackout at Norwich Waterfront, April 2011 (Jon Luton)

Three great bands, all putting on amazing performances. I always love photographing The Blackout, so much energy and passion in their music, they always put on a show. The Swellers were awesome, I was so disappointed when their last Norwich gig got canceled (due to Gus from Young Guns being ill), so it was great to finally see them. And Hyro Da Hero was incredible, so good to have The Blackout supporting good rap music.


The Pigeon Detectives at Norwich Waterfront

Just Can’t Get Rid Of Us Tour

Just Can't Get Rid Of Us Tour

Bowling For Soup

The Just Can’t Get Rid Of Us Tour was a show I had really been looking forward to. I always enjoy watching Bowling For Soup, and bringing one of my favourite bands of all time, A, with them made it even better. Forever The Sickest Kids and The Dollyrots completed the line up. All the bands put on an energetic and entertaining performance, and it was really good seeing A, and them playing a load of old songs which I can remember singing along to back in the late 90’s.
