Pixie Lott, June 2012

I'm not usually much of a gig or live music photographer, I've done a handful of gigs over the last few years and I think I find it quite frustrating as I'm usually the one to direct on a shoot and this kind of Photography is far from directional!

I got a press pass for the Jubilee Concert at the Mall which had Pixie Lott as headline act and even though it poured and poured (so badly, I had my camera actually inside my top for fear of it getting damaged that I resembled a drowned rat after!) the atmosphere was fantastic as they often are at Charity gigs.


After shooting this, it's really gotten me inspired to shoot some more! I love how unpredictable, tricky, and rewarding it is to get one solid good image - and the simple fact that the image has to portray more than the artist, but the atmosphere too!






When I was told we'd only get the first 3 songs to shoot, I didn't think it would be long enough - funnily enough at the same time it whizzed by it also felt like forever - perhaps it was the rain but I was pretty glad to get back to the sound tent after being soaked!
