As a photojournalist I’ve always enjoyed documenting youth culture and music events at the O2 Academy Bournemouth. This music and events venue was previously named the Opera House. I first worked as an event photographer at this venue for Slinky in 1995. It was great to be back to photograph Gareth Emery’s performance on behalf of his management company.

With varying lighting conditions it can be tricky to capture an artist during a live performance. I always use the available ambient light to document the true essence of the event and faithfully record the atmosphere. Through lifestyle portraiture and reportage photography it is possible to capture an artist performance naturally without interruption and documenting the live aspects of the music event.
