Best Of 2010 – Music Photography

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!

    Steve, what a flippin awesome bunch of shots. I don’t think I’ve seen a more varied or kick-ass set around! Looks like your 2010 was unbelievably busy. You haven’t secretly got a twin-brother have you? Best of luck with 2011- looking forward to seeing those new workshop dates!

  2. Your wife

    Babe, you are AMAZING! 2010 was definitely a very busy year but all the hard work is paying off 🙂 You are getting better and better every time! I am the luckiest girl 🙂

    Faves: Bullet for my valentine, Copious, Killswitch Engage, The Dillinger Escape Plan, J-Z, both pics of Kiss…and of course Peter Andre 😉

    ps. don’t forget to leave soon for dinner

  3. Have to agree the Peter Andre image really stood out for me which is not doing your street cred any good at all 😉 Some of my fav bands in that mix as well inspiring stuff like your wedding images.

  4. Hi,
    Love the pictures, wish you could give me some lessons. I’ve been taking pics of Set in Stone for the last year. They have a new member and I needed some ideas. Your site Rocks! Killer band shots. Great lighting, and locations. I’m just teaching myself as I go along. Send me an email if you like. I need some pointers. Thanks for putting these on the web. If you need someone to carry your bag at your next photo shoot pick me… lol
