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 […]

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 […]

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.

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.

Rules Of Romance

Photos from the recent promotional photo shoot I did with Rules Of Romance.

Nervous Turkey Xmas Show

Nervous Turkey Xmas Show

Wednesday was the last gig of a long year of gig photography for me. This was a charity gig organised by Norwich band Lost? featuring some great local bands. The bands that played were Lost?, Underline The Sky, Tenex, Show Me The Coastline and Settle For Second.

Young Guns / Flood Of Red at Norwich Arts Centre

Young Guns / Flood Of Red at Norwich Arts Centre

Young Guns
If you saw my photo blog of Young Guns from Hevy Festival you’ll know that Young Guns have been one of my favourite bands this year. Not only did they release one of the best albums of 2010, but that have toured constantly, entertaining crowds all over europe. The one thing guaranteed is a high energy show, and this night was no different. Great set. Support band Flood Of Red were also great.

The Bluetones at Norwich Waterfront

The Bluetones
The Bluetones will always be a special band for me, they were the first band I ever saw live, back in 1996. It was watching them play, constantly listening to their albums, and live video (back in the days before DVDs) that made me want to learn to play drums and guitar.

Anberlin and Hawthorne Heights at Norwich Waterfront

Anberlin and Hawthorne Heights at Norwich Waterfront

Hawthorne Heights
I’ve photographed both of these bands before, Anberlin at Norwich UEA when they supported Elliot Minor back in 2008, and Hawthorne Heights at Norwich UEA when they were on the Kerrang tour back in 2006. Really enjoyed photographing both of them the first time round, this time it wasn’t as much fun. Both bands performed great sets, but the lack of light on stage made it very hard to focus and get a fast shutter speed.

Jimmy Eat World at Norwich UEA

Jimmy Eat World at Norwich UEA

Jimmy Eat World
When one of your favourite bands play it’s always hard to decide whether or not to go to the gig as a fan and watch, or whether or not to photograph. I’ve loved Jimmy Eat World for over ten years seen them many times, but always chose to watch the set from the crowd rather than photograph them.
