I love shooting live music, and I don’t get the chance often enough. So when the Electric Lights asked me to bring my camera down to a gig in Cambridge, I was pleased as punch!
The venue was the Portland Arms – a pub that hosts a lot of live music. It’s a great place to shoot at because it’s large enough to be well lit but small enough to be intimate, and no one really minds if you walk about at the front of the stage with a camera. It’s as far from the ‘first three songs and flash’ rules as you can possibly get.
I’ve been shooting a bit more with these guys for an forthcoming project, which I can’t wait to show off soon.
