Last night we had the Brit awards. I have been lucky enough to shoot a number of them;

Mumford & Sons

I shot “The Mumfords” at Brighton Corn Exchange back in March 2010. It was a great gig although the lighting was very poor.  It was one of those rare gigs where I got the chance to sit at the rear of the venue and listen for a short while. I really liked what I heard and purchased the album (which I play regularly) the next day.

Tinie Tempah

Tinie I photographed in a small club on Brighton seafront as part of “The Great Escape” festival (a great place to spot new talent). We were almost sitting on the stage and as a number of photographers rushed off to other gigs early, he really played to my camera before I left. It was a great gig.

Plan B aka Ben Drew

Finally Plan-B in the biggest venue of the 3: The Royal Albert Hall. This was taken in September during The Orange Rockcorps thank you concert. Each set was very short but again, he is another great performer.

All in all, I can see why each of the winners won. All deserving. (IMHO).
