Lowdown & Thirty

One of the types of photography that I really enjoy is music photography, be that live bands or clubbing. I’ve also been lucky enough to regularly do the photos for the rather excellent Manchester club night called Lowdown & Dirty.

Well, it so happens that Lowdown & Dirty has both its 30th night this Saturday (26th Jan 2013), but that night is the 3rd Birthday night as well! It’s going to be a heavy one with a couple of favourites of mine headlining, Elite Force from U&A Records, and Metha, a leading participant in the Be Massive parties in Hungary.

Anyhow, as this will be their 30th show, and the 26th that I’ve done photos for, I thought that I’d put together a (not so) little selection of my favourites from the last three years! It really brought back some memories going through the 5000 or so best photos from all those nights out!

Long may they continue, happy Lowdown & Thirty!

Hope you enjoy having a look through them as much as I did taking them!

The First Film of 2013

Well, obviously not the first of anyone’s films, just the first of mine. Shot on my lovely OM10 on a roll of Boots ISO 400 colour.
There’s a nice range of shots though, from a good few outings showing the varied states of terrible/good weather we seem to be having over the last couple of months (I am in Manchester, what can you expect?!).
Still, very happy with some of the shots, definitely a couple of keepers in there!

Hope that the Christmas and New Year break treated you all well, hope you like the photos and watch this space for more (especially as I’ve also just picked up a Pentax P30)…

All the best!
