As a music photographer I’m lucky enough to photograph some amazing artists, some legendary, some almost unknown. I get into most gigs free and often get to meet some of my favourite bands. Not a bad job really 🙂
Recently I got to spend a couple of days with my favourite metal band, the mighty GOJIRA. They may not be the most well known band in the world but if you like your music heavy, intelligent and original, make sure you check them out. They’re also amazing musicians and the nicest guys you’ll meet.
I was working for Terrorizer Magazine for their Road Report feature and hung out with the band in Birmingham and Stoke-On-Trent. I started with a few pics of the guys hangin’ out and soundchecking.
We then took a break to get some band portraits outside the venue..
Before the show I grabbed a few shots of them during their warm up routine.
And then it was show time!
And this is what a band looks like after an immense and intense live show…
Thanks to Christian, Joe, Mario and Jean Michel for making me feel so welcome. I look forward to catching up with the band again when they return to the UK.
