What upsets me here is that what has been gained from this? An charity event has lost a set of images which I provided to them pro-bono to help them as a crew and promote the work they did. I will obviously not be shooting their events again, as it seems internal politics have led to a situation where members of the promotional team do not know what other members have agreed, and I don’t really want to be working in that situation. One less club on the list for me, one less photographer on the list for them. The DJ himself has lost the use of the image he wanted to use in the first place and the possibility of some future collaboration. Because of nothing more than a kickback about giving proper credit.

And that helps the music scene how?

happy new year!

I have been out and about in the clubs again recently with this set from Sunrise at the West Indian Centre. The full set is on Images from The Underground.

One of the wonderful things about having a child is that all the latent interests that you have hidden (potentially as uncool) for many years can be expressed, free of shame. To be fair, trains are pretty cool subjects for…

Something that comes up in discussion more and more amongst music photographers recently is the curse of the LED spot. These may have their benefits for cost, power and the environment, but they are bloody annoying for photographers. Unlike a…
