Never Say Die - HMV Forum

Photopasses are a little bit of a rare occurance for me at the moment and I managed to get one (through Livethescene) for the London date of the Never Say Die tour. It had an insane line up. The tube strile meant I didn't get in until after the first two bands but once inside I met up with three other photographers I'm friends with (Ian Arnold, Abbi London and Ben Gibson). It was quite bizarre shooting with some many friends around and in the pit. It makes everything so much more fun and a lot more relaxed. It really felt like thats how shooting shows should be.

The lighting for the venue was a bit hit and miss and that coupled with the fact they allowed flash sort of knocked me off my game. I wanted to shoot flash but couldn't get it right so I'd shoot without and then the lighting would turn shit. I'd then have to go back to flash only for me to get frustrated and switch back to shooting without. I normally don't see many other peoples photos from the gigs I shoot (if any) but seeing Ben's and Ian's photos highlighted how different my photos are (and I'm not sure thats a good thing). There's one or two photos from the night I really like but I look at them all as a whole and just think that they should have been better. That sort of line up and that sort of venue deserve better photos. I struggle a lot with shooting with flash and it's something I really need to get to grips with.

The links below will take you to the rest of the photos from the night.

The end of this year is going to be a strange one. Three potentially life changing opportunities may happen and they may not but I might right about the situations soon. Strange times ahead.
