Here we go, my favourite music pictures of the year – 2016. This year has been fantastic for shooting bands and I can’t wait to see what 2017 brings. This was the first year that I got to shoot at the Boardmasters Festival, it had been a while since I attended the Boardmasters Festival so it was great to return to Newquay on what was a perfect summers day. During the Primal Scream set I had to take a reality check as to how lucky I was. Here I was taking pictures of one of my favourite bands, and also getting to enjoy their outstanding set.
Other highlights of the year were We Are Scientists, the Darkness, White Denim, Reef, Sweedish Death Candy and Yak. It was also a great to discover some new local talent (Waxx, O’Deus & Mildred Maud) and to catch up with some of the other great Cornish acts (Tinnedfruit, the Velvet Hands, Nightmotor and Lost Dawn).
All of this wouldn’t have been possible without the help of the following people. Lee Trewhela at the West Briton, Liam Jolly at SW1 Productions, Charlie Stanley at Mono, Curtis Sharkey at LD Communications and Jess Chambers at the MJR Group.
