Statistics sometimes interest me. I don't go out of my way to note this stuff generally, but someone asked me how many bands I've shot so I did a bit of a count up on my computer.
I’ve been involved in music photography since about 2012. Some of my first photographs were taken on film. They were of Henry Slim, John Fairhurst and Joseph Strouser at the Left Bank, and a great wee ale and folk festival at the Kingsdown Wine Vaults when Philo Sinnett ran it back in the good old days.
In May I reached the grand total of 100 different bands when I photographed Yola Carter at the Thunderbolt on a very memorable night that also included a great set by another new band to me - Newton Country from Bath.
The tally has since risen to 113.
For anyone interested in which band I have photographed most of all, that remains a close contest between the Montgomerys and John Fairhurst (solo and band). I might even put up a list of all the bands I've photographed to date at some point soon.
