It’s the time of year again when the great folks over at Outline Magazine and BBC Introducing put on the yearly Music in Focus exhibition in Norwich. This post is a little bit late as it started a week ago, but I wanted to get something up here about it…whether it was late or not! 😀
What is the Music in Focus Photography exhibition? The exhibition is a chance for photographers both amateur and professional to showcase their work of photography that involves musicians either from Norwich, or from gigs they played in Norwich. The vast majority of the exhibition features live photography from various shows in Norwich. These images can range from small local bands all the way through to big label acts that make their tours through Norwich. As always, it features some absolutely amazing images from some truly talented live music photographers. Last year, I was one of the few that had promotional and publicity photography on exhibition and my entries for it this year were in the same vain. Below are the images that I entered this year. Not as many as last year as my work seemed to involved a higher percentage of bands and musicians from London this year, but I did still have the opportunity to work with a few Norwich based bands.
These first two images are from one of my favourite bands to work with, that anyone who follows my work should recognise. The fantastic, Norwich based Hello Bear. Shot on location at the Sickroom Studios in Kings Lynn while they were recording their debut album “This One Girl” the shoot was a lot of fun and the guys were up for trying out a host of ideas…no matter how absurd! This second image here is the first image you will see when you come to the Music in Focus Photography exhibition. This is the second year in a row that one of my images has been the main image when entering the exhibition, and as a photographer you can’t help but be really pleased with that!
This image was one of the first images I won an award for in 2012. The concept of the shoot was something I was very excited for at the time of the shooting, and it is still one of my absolute favourite images from this year. Another fantastic Norwich based band, Kings and Crows were a real pleasure to work with and I am sure they are just as pleased as me to have their mugs on display this year!
