Black and White Photo

I love gig photography – it’s a massive passion of mine – I’m rarely happier than listening to one of my favourite musicians and snapping away while they perform.

One of my major gripes is the lighting at gigs – whoever told venue owners that rotating red, blue and green lights is in any way complimentary never took a photo. My solution to this issue is to shoot in black and white. I often don’t even take a colour photo at a gig.

This set of photographs was taken under the other gig conditions that are troublesome for photographers – low light with no way of adding your own light to the scenario. Again shooting in black and white comes to the rescue.

The subject of the photos is a singer called Thom Morecroft, originally from Shropshire, he currently lives in Liverpool and is a stalwart of the local music scene, as a performer and also running a very popular open mic night. Thom is a great guy – kind and generous and a very talented singer and musician.

The EP that was launched the night these photos were taken can be bought here.
