I was invited back as a festival photographer to document We Are FSTVL, an electronic dance music festival held in Upminster, Essex. This was the second year of the festival and is now a 2 day event. As an official festival photographer my job is to document the atmosphere, emotion, colour and of course all the fun, with an emphasis on the production and artists that perform.

This years event was particularly special and happy to report 95% dry! The main stage closing on both nights were truly epic, spectacular pyrotechnics, lasers and fireworks shows. I really do love festival photography, it’s hard work and long hours but a pleasure to photograph.

Here is just a short photo story from the many thousands of photos taken over the 2 days coverage:
