I have a broad range of experience in concert photography, covering a number of different musical styles, and types of venues. While my own tastes in music have historically tended more towards the rock and metal side of the scale, working at events has given me a much deeper appreciation for all kinds of music, especially classical, folk and electronic. I love photographing musicians of any kind, and adore photos which show them and their audiences caught up in the moment.
Previously I have worked with various well known venues and organisations throughout Bristol. I regularly photograph performances for St George's Bristol, and in 2019 I also worked with Bristol Folk Festival. At the other side of the scale, I've also found myself photographing a cosy gig in a tiny Bath bookshop, and even home performances! No venue is out of the question, and I absolutely love the challenge or responding to a new space.
I'm very conscious that musicians who are just starting out might not have too much money to spare. While I quote each live performance on an individual basis, I also operate reduced rates, intended for those who are struggling financially. Please have a look at my pricing page if you would like to know more about this.
