About / Bio

Thanks for your interest. If you are unfamiliar with my name, it is pronounced "Greg". I am based out of Brighton, UK (operating mainly in and around London and the South East but happy to travel), and have worked as a music photographer since 2010, mostly within the rock, metal, and punk genres. Highlights over the years have included direct commissions for Rock Sound and Metal Hammer magazines, and seeing my photography published by Kerrang!, Rhythm, Q magazine, Rolling Stone, the BBC, and many other highly regarded music publications. I currently have 15+ album and EP artwork credits, too.

Here's some tearsheets and screenshots of published images.

The Coronavirus lockdown of the UK music scene during 2020 enabled me to spend time developing awareness of my personal photography work, blending elements of humanist, street, and fine-art styles using an artful black and white aesthetic. Of course there's an occasional hint towards my music photography too (although it is more documentorial in nature). This has lead to some competition success, print sales, images exhibited, and the creation of my first photobook.

All my personal work can be seen at www.greigclifford.com/photography.

Consequently, the year 2021 marked a major change in how I now approach my work as a music photographer... In line with my personal photography I decided to no longer work in colour, as I have chosen to dedicate my energies following an art photography path rather than one more typical of a music press photographer. It's an instinctive decision that I believe enables me to combine all elements of my photography in a more meaningful coherent way.

Copyright / Image licence

I will never sell my copyright in the images I make. However, with commissioned work (and once full payment has been made) a licence will be issued which allows use of all finished images, and any edited versions you may create from them, for any purpose, commercial, editorial, promotional, etc., just as you would be able to if you held the copyright yourself. The licence covers all territories (the universe), and lasts forever.

So, to reiterate, you will hold a usage licence, I will retain the copyright in the original image. This is mainly (but not limited to) so that I may freely exhibit and show my work, freely use my work in any publication, sell prints or posters or publish the image in some other way for additional financial gain. If the image ever becomes well known enough then it may help me pay for my retirement!

This enables you to fully profit from the images I create for you and allows me to work for a fee much lower than I would otherwise be comfortable with.
