This weekend is the annual Tramlines music festival in Sheffield.  And I am proud to announce that I will be one of the official photographers for the festival!  To say that I am excited is an understatement.  800 bands and artists will be playing over the weekend and it will be my job to capture as many of them as I can.

When I was a teenager and then until my mid 20s I was a frequent gig goer and I read the NME and Melody Maker every week.  I was always in awe of the gig photography of the likes of Kevin Cummins and I never in a million years would have imagined that over 20 years later I would get the chance to replicate the types of shots I saw every week by Cummins et al.

So I am relishing the opportunity and aim to try to capture as many great shots as I can.  It will be tough, especially as I have only done gig photography once, back in March, but I will give it my best shot

I thought I would post some of my favourite gig photos by Cummins to serve as an inspiration.  If mine are half as good as these I think I will be doing well!
