Kaiser Chiefs at Scala. I have a love-hate relationship with my 50mm f1.2 prime lens. I get a lot of mis-fires (I think it needs recalibrating) but when it works, it produces some nice pictures. Especially close-up portraits. This was a great shoot because Kaiser Chiefs put on a really dynamic show and it was a rare opportunity to get up close to a band more accustomed to arenas. Very close: The Scala gives you one of the closest pits in London. A real contender for the final 13 I reckon. #music #gigphotography #song #songs #melody #pop #concertphotography #guitar #photooftheday #live #singer #gigphoto #goodmusic #instamusic #livemusic #livemusicphotography #livenation #concert

Klaxons at Oslo. Another flash experimentation. I stole this technique from a someone who posted a youtube video of a guy flashing right in the face of a singer, to almost unanimous outrage from the commenters. But the band had asked him to do it and he was getting amazing results. His technique was to twist the camera at the moment of pressing the shutter (and obviously use quite a long exposure). One for the toolbox I think: but is it calendar-worthy? #music #gigphotography #song #songs #melody #pop #concertphotography #guitar #photooftheday #live #singer #gigphoto #goodmusic #instamusic #livemusic #livemusicphotography #livenation #concert

69daysofstatic at Koko. Sometimes the light shows are so extreme and/or the security a little relaxed that you can get away with using a flash despite the "3 songs no flash rule". And do a bit of experimenting. But I don't know. Perhaps a too gimmicky to take a slot in the rugfoot rock 'n roll calendar?
customixed : Great!

2014 music photo review no. 6. Another from the Celebr8.3 prog weekend. Karmakanic (not to be confused with The Tangent, who have a very similar line-up). Loved these guys and this photo. But will two prog rock photos make the final 13 on the calendar? #music #gigphotography #song #songs #melody #pop #concertphotography #guitar #photooftheday #live #singer #gigphoto #goodmusic #instamusic #livemusic #livemusicphotography #livenation #concert #prog #progrock

2014 music review no. 5: @thumpermonkey_ One of my favourite shoots of last year was the @Celebr8.3 Prog Rock weekend at Islington Assembly Hall. All the artists gave great photographic value - from classic axe poses to outrageous costumes to lovely (slightly ironic, I'm guessing) proggy gestures like this one. A rock calendar needs a bit of humour doesn't it? #music #gigphotography #song #songs #melody #pop #concertphotography #guitar #photooftheday #live #singer #gigphoto #goodmusic #instamusic #livemusic #livemusicphotography #livenation #concert #prog #progrock

Guy Garvey of Elbow at O2 Arena. Looking through the set of photos from that night, there were so many good ones, it was difficult to choose. Credit for them being good though should mainly go to Guy Garvey. He's such a great showman - stomping around the stage, reaching out, giving everything on stage. In this photo, I took out quite a few distractions (mainly lights), to leave a nice dark expanse. Again, this won't work half as well on Instagram as on the finished A3 calendar and this is a very strong contender to make the 13. #music #gigphotography #song #songs #melody #pop #concertphotography #guitar #photooftheday #live #singer #gigphoto #goodmusic #instamusic #livemusic #livemusicphotography #livenation #concert

A personal fave of mine. It's @averysunshine at Islington Assembly Hall. You probably can't see on Instagram, but there's detail in her eyelashes and there are illuminated specks of dust in the air. And I love that expression on her face! This is a certainty to make the final 13! #music #gigphotography #song #songs #melody #pop #concertphotography #guitar #photooftheday #live #singer #gigphoto #goodmusic #instamusic #livemusic #livemusicphotography #livenation #concert

Another sneak preview at this year's rugfoot rock 'n roll calendar. The pictures are chosen partly because I like the artists, partly because I like the pictures. Interesting thing with this one of Royal Blood at @greatescapefest is I got it before I was officially let into the photo pit. There were a lot of photogs keen to shoot them so we had to take turns. But I think the angle (with another band looking on) makes for an interesting shot and a bit of a story.
albene_dictine : Nice catch :)
shawn_c : Cool how you can tell the dudes in the background are saying "yeh, dig that", rather "hey, can you believe how shit thus muppet is!"
