Home Of Fadeless Splendour

2 May 2015 brought us The Alphabet Business Convention.  This is a show celebrating the work of the genius that is Tim Smith.  I don’t use the word lightly – I love Tim’s music above all others and his work as a video director is also astonishing.    Tim suffered a series of debilitating strokes in 2008.  It’s fantastic that he was able to attend the event, which he clearly found hugely affecting.  We all did.

Anyway, I took my cameras along.

I have a few internal rules about photographing bands.  I really like to get some pictures with every band member visible.  I always think “How would I feel if there was a picture of my band and you couldn’t see me in it?”  – I think drummers get a particularly raw deal, often sitting in the gloom at the back of the stage, or  lost behind the singer.

I also like to capture some drama and excitement in the pictures.  That’s the motivation behind my use of ultra-wide angle and fish-eye lenses.

Here’s the pictures on Flickr – I’d recommend watching them as a slideshow:

It was a wonderful event and there were some wonderful people there.

Until the next time!
