Apart from shooting 48 weddings in 2010, I was also busy in between shooting bands. I work regularly for magazines such as Rock Sound, Terrorizer and Metal Hammer as well as shooting for the Birmingham Live site which I launched 3 years ago.
I’ve also shot a bunch of band portraits, mostly for local bands and I hope to do much more of those in 2011.
It’s been a mixed bag too. From legends like Kiss, Aerosmith and Glen Campbell to popstars Peter Andre, The Saturdays & Olly Murs. From extreme bands to acoustic singer/songwriters. And I finally got to photograph my favourite band, Pearl Jam. Twice!
All in all a great year and here are some of my faves from the past 12 months. Enjoy!
