Best music-related memory:

  • Winning the Amateur category at the Event Photography Awards
  • Being in the photopit (and therefore very close to the stage and speakers) when Lamb Of God played one of my favourite songs “Walk With Me In Hell”

Having beer thrown over me and my camera at the Trivium show at Brixton Academy.

What are you looking forward to in 2019?

  • The new Rammstein album and seeing them play some of the new songs live
  • Seeing Parkway Drive live for the first time
  • Seeing Behemoth play Kentish Town Forum
  • Hopefully a new Baroness album and tour
  • Hopefully a new Lindemann album and tour

Best Discovery:

Parkway Drive. They were headlining the Metalhammer Golden Gods back in June but I left before they played, which turned out to be a huge mistake as just days later I saw people’s videos of their show and it just blew me away. I have been a huge fan ever-since!

Overall view of the year:

In 2018 there have been some brilliant albums as well as some excellent tours. I have been lucky enough to photograph some of my all-time favourite bands, and I was also delighted to be appointed Photo Editor at The Moshville Times.
