Live music photos of 2011

December 28, 2011

Crystal Castles, Brixton Academy

2011 has indubitably been a vintage year to be involved with The 405 where I reside as Photo Editor, a year which has seen a myriad of milestones-reached and trenchant events gone by for the site. A marvelously designed new website launched, national radio appearances, key interviews – I could go on but the list is as long as one my my clumsy and pretentious reviews.

From a photographic perspective it’s been a pleasure, the standard of imagery from the hugely talented gaggle of togs (what is the plural for a group of photographers? Disparaging answers welcomed) who are associated with The 405 has increased exponentially, as has the coverage of gigs and festivals; Iceland, Austria, Sweden, Germany, France. British Festivals. Key gigs throughout the UK. etc. Check out the In Photos Special of 2011 that I edited, it’s helluva something and was a total nightmare to curate given the aforementioned quality.

It’s to the point now where I feel I never need pick up a camera again at a gig (which would make it much easier to dance and drink – my original past-time). These are the gigs/festivals however that I did photograph in 2011, and again, was fortunate enough to cover acts I’ve an enormous amount of respect for and go to places I had never been to before.
