All Time Low have been one of my favourite bands for a few years now, so having the chance to shoot them at such an incredible venue was a dream come true! The lighting was great and the band were good fun on stage! A night which will definitely stay in my memory.
I thought this would be a great gig to photograph and partly I was right, the venue itself is incredible, and the light (although darker than it looks) was nice and even. The projection of Frank behind the band was also a great touch, particularly given how good the band were, as it synched perfectly.
However, due to the venue being seated, my shooting angles were pretty limited, and although I am happy with my photographs, I would have loved to get more central in order to get a nice close shot of Dweezil in front of his dad. Anyway, that’s life, hope you like the photos!
Up until the end of December I’ll be shooting all the bands/singers/rappers below.
Keep your eyes peeled on the blog to see the photographs

After December I’m going traveling for 12 months in Australia, South America & North America so my band photographs will be few and far between although a travel blog will be set up somewhere!
I’ll be dividing my posts into sections.
Posts called ‘Golden Oldie‘ that will have pictures from past shows that I’ve photographed.
Then posts called ‘Alive & Kickin” which will have pictures from recent shows that I’ve photographed.
This is my first ‘Golden Oldie’ post. Pendulum 2010.
First of all I’m not a fan of Pendulum but I knew that their music would offer a fantastic lighting display so I worked effortlessly to get a photo pass.
After many hours of nagging it eventually come off and I was confirmed for Pendulum at Birmingham’s NIA.
Here are some of the results:

Good friends of mine ‘Sharks’ were asked to play the Lock Up stage at Reading/Leeds Festivals. They had just got back from a lengthy tour in America that involved a support slot for Social Distortion and featuring on nearly every date of the Vans Warped Tour.
After doing many photo shoot favors for the band their manager got in touch and before I knew it I was confirmed to be photographing the Lock Up stage at Leeds Festival.
This was to be my first festival experience of any kind. Other than muddy, cold and tiring it was a great day and I hope many more festival experiences come my way.
Rock Sound did an online gallery of their favorite photographs that I took backstage when the Sharks lads were preparing for their Leeds Festival debut (see link at the bottom of this post).
Here are some of my favorite shots from the day (click the thumbnails for full size):
