Bands and Gigs

By Canvey Gig Photographer Gary Hobbs

There’s something special about being at a live event – being able to see the bass being plucked as it resonates through you, feeling a connection with the singer that you simply can’t get with a CD or download. At gigs, I love soaking up the atmosphere, and enjoy being surrounded by like-minded people, sharing the love of music.

As a photographer, I have the wonderful opportunity to capture the energy of the performance, and the emotions and personalities of those on stage. Also, I love capturing the faces in the crowd, either singing at the top of their voices, or fixated by an acoustic version of their favourite track.
