So, who was responsible for pulling together letlive and Creeper as supports? That would be Pierce the Veil.Read More
Having posted my Creeper pics yesterday, it only seems right that my shots of letlive should follow today. They are, without doubt, one of the best live bands on the planet - ever - and, backed with a stupendous album earlier this year, they only continue to grow and evolve into something even more wonderful. Also, in Jason Aalon Butler, they have the best frontperson in music right now and the most adaptable vocalist you could ever wish to see. A real gem - hope you enjoy my pics.
I shot my first gig in an absolute age at the end of November - a show that featured two of the BEST bands around right now. My pics of letlive are still to come, but first, a band I've been buzzed about all year...Creeper.Read More

Well, 2015 is nearly done and dusted. I've decided to pull together a selection of my favourite music photos that I've shot this year into a little video below. I've included one picture from every band at every gig I've covered. Have a look and see what you think!
PS the music is taken from 'Nailbiter' by Looming, which was probably my favourite album of 2015.
Happy New Year - see you in 2016!
Lower Than Atlantis is a band I've really gotten into over the past 18 months, so it was great to get to shoot their recent headline run when it stopped off in Birmingham.Read More
