LIVE MUSIC PHOTOGRAPHY
When image is everything get the right images!
There is nothing better as a band than having awesome photographs of you looking like a superstar! Having been the lead guitarist in a rock band, with a wide range of tastes, I know the importance of not only having something to cherish, but also to really show yourself off. Dedicated to providing high quality images, I also make every effort to blog, tweet, Instagram and Facebook every band to help boost your profile. As an official photographer for the Joiners Live in Southampton, I get to shoot a wide range of bands and acts across a wide range of genres. My experience also extends to small band gigs and festival gigs.

Hi, I am Jesse, a professional photographer based on the south coast of the UK, on the edge of Southampton. I have been photographing live music for over 6 years. Being passionate about both music and photography, this was a natural thing for me to want to do, but I actually love the two together even more!
I don't really have a favourite genre, though I do tend to lean towards rock and metal. That said, I equally love accoustic sets, hip hop, and a wide range of other types of music - there is no music snobbery here!
Finally, I am very supportive of other photographers - I do this because I love it - and so will happilly promote other creatives.

Press & Reviews
I have been featured in the press on a number of occasions, as well as writing articles in blogs. These include:
Strong Island is Portsmouth & Southsea's no.1 website for arts, culture & lifestyle. Because of their influence on the south coast, they open a lot of doors to the music scene.
I am a regular photographer and reviewer of shows for them.
