The Gig Photography started because my favourite “Tog” could not be available to shoot MINSTER CONSPIRACY (my son’s band) at each gig, so I figured, well I better learn how to do that then…………….I shoot as many gigs as I can squeeze into an already hectic life and have recently started doing some video work, nothing huge, just some live videos of bands I know and work with fairly often, to see how that goes, again learning as I go.
I work with bands I enjoy both as musicians and as people, artists that want to work, improve and ENJOY the music, I work closely with RUSTED HERO, MINSTER CONSPIRACY & TOMORROW IS LOST, doing my utmost to help them along the rocky road that is being in a rock band.
I am now the Band Manger for a band that I firmly believe have what it takes to take over the planet….A JOKERS RAGE are everything a band should be and so much more, they have this inherent ability to “convert” any crowd, regardless of genre and still be the quiet down to earth guys you can sit and have a beer with after the show.
Kinda like this website, built myself after hours of screwing it up, you see, the thing is, I believe in the bands, “The Scene” and in order to do my bit, I have to learn…..how to take and edit an image, how to build a website, how to manage a band, how to be a promoter, how to organise an event, how to listen…….it does not matter if the event is a gig at a local venue or a festival, or if the Band is Metallica or Mary Jane Rotten Crotch and her mates in the garage, you have to go at it the same way, full on and completely committed, just like the bands I work with, I must have the same work ethic, the same belief IN THEM as they have in themselves, otherwise, whats the point……….right.
