I’ve been lucky as a photojournalist to photograph hundreds of festivals all over the world, but one of my absolute favourites is GlobalGathering here in the UK. As a photographer that enjoys documentary and lifestyle photography, this music festival always brings lots of opportunities to capture fun, excitement and colourful moments.
This photo story features some of my favourite festival photos taken during the first day of the event. When working as an official festival photographer there are many requirements and challenges, the main part to capture the true essence and atmosphere of the event. Reportage photography is used to document real action and emotion. I approach lifestyle portraits and live action event photography creativity and without the use of flash to maintain the true atmosphere. Post production is completed during the edit to enhance the images with a distinctive style.
