I am a 19 year old freelance photographer from the UK. I’ve been interested in music for a majority of my life but got into photography at college and decided to combine the two. I’ve been thing it more seriously for the past year, and have so far managed to become a house photographer at KOKO, Camden, and shoot bands such as All Time Low, Mayday Parade, We Are the In Crowd, McFly and Kids In Glass Houses. As well as regularly shooting for local band Mimi Soya. I believe in capturing the atmosphere and emotion of the moment and images that make us see differently from the usual perspective. My photos have so far been featured on NME.com and Bigcheesemagazine.com

Samantha Stott: Lostprophets – Brixton Academy – 4/5/2012

Lostprohets are a band that I have loved since I was about 15 however never had the opportunity to see them live until this week. I definitely didn’t expect to be shooting the show but thanks to Ian pulling a few string I managed to get a pass! I have to say they certainly know [...]

Samantha Stott: All Time Low – 4th February – HMV Forum, London

Supported by We Are The In Crowd and The Maine. I had been looking forward to photographing this band for a long time, I first shot them on their tour in March 2011, they were the first band that ever gave me photo pass. The energy and enthusiasm they bring to the shows is unlike [...]

Samantha Stott: 30 Seconds To Mars – Lille, France – 18th November 2011

30 Seconds To Mars are by far my favourite band (to the point of having their triad tattooed on my wrist). I didn’t go to this show as I photographer, I went to be in the crowd but got front row, had my camera and somehow ended up on stage for Kings and Queens! I [...]

Samantha Stott: Switchfoot – O2 Shepherds Bush Empire – 8th November 2011

Supported by In Case Of Fire This was an interesting show to shoot simply because all the photographers we kicked out the venue (into the rain) between sets, not just out the pit. I had never heard any of Switchfoots’ music before the show and I was pleasantly surprised with how good they were. They [...]
