Commercial Photographer Chichester, Sussex
This year I’ve been so busy with my usual wedding and portrait photography work, I haven’t had much opportunity for shooting my other love: Bands and music. I’m very lucky to have a husband who works in the music industry. It makes my access to great music and gigs much easier. The downside of course, is we need more babysitters to go on these gigs together!
A recent Arkyard Tour featuring the great Rivers and Robots, Josh Gauton and Tom McConnell saw me hanging out in small, quirky venues. The Green Door Club in Brighton and Mole in Bath. If possible I love to structure a portrait of a band or musician before their gig as well as capturing the live action.
As a commercial photographer in Chichester and Sussex, I come across a whole range of industries requiring products or people photographed for commercial purposes, but I do think the music industry has to be my favourite. The sounds, smells and visuals all combined to capture moments shared by hundreds of others, hopefully taking them right back to that moment when they see the images. I like to play with both Colour and Black & White photography. Sometimes by choice, sometimes due to the colour of stage lighting beaming down on someones face. I do love atmospheric lighting…add a smoke machine too for an absolute winner!
Here’s some moments captured of Housefires from their recent UK tour put on by The Big Church Live. The venue in Bristol was filled to the brim, tickets sold out. The atmosphere in the venue was incredible, and to top it off, they were the most lovely band too. A real honour to be up close and personal with these guys.
I’m so thankful to have been able to meet and shoot these fantastic musicians this year, and we’re only in the first quarter! I’m looking forward to what the rest of the year entails for me as I fly the flag for capturing the Music Industry as a commercial photographer Chichester.
