I am a London based live music photographer.
I am based in London however I travel constantly so have worked arenas all over the world including The O2 in London, T-Mobile in Las Vegas, Madison Square Garden in New York, Manchester Arena in Manchester, Barclaycard Arena in Hamburg, Echo Arena in Liverpool, Barclays Center in Brooklyn, TD Garden in Boston, Saitama Super Arena in Tokyo amongst many, many others.
I prefer to shoot away from "the pit" to involve the crowd in an attempt to really capture the atmosphere and energy of the live music experience. In doing so I usually need permission from the venue and/or artist to embed myself amongst the crowd. In exchange I'm happy to provide images to the artists and arena's social media as long as credit is given.
