The Subways

At the beginning of 2015 I started seeing this portrait appearing online accompanying news of The Subways latest album release and promotional European tour. To say I was pleased it got used by the band as much as it did is a massive understatement! Seeing it being used by such a multitude of publications online and in print including Q Magazine and Kerrang! is amazing for me and the fact that my name was included so many times has been a real help raising my own profile a bit.

The photo was taken backstage at Concorde 2 before their show last year (as featured in FEATURED #1). I manipulated the poster background a bit by layering several shots to give it a more distinctive 'look'. This is the full format image to allow space for any text or custom crops a magazine or website wanted to make. Usually the crops were standard 3:2 ratio or square but I've seen 2:3 portrait crops too. It's quite a versatile image that also works well tonally as a black and white portrait too.

This image above is a compilation of two shots taken immediately after each other on a right to left sweep of the stage. The split is in between Charlotte and Josh. This, and the next set of photos below, were taken during their headline show at Camden Rocks 2014. If you want to find out more about this excellent festival I've written a few words with photos on page 6.

One of my major highlights so far in 2015 was to be invited to photograph their London show at Shepherds Bush Empire, the final gig in their 2 month long, 42 date, European tour promoting the release of their self titled album. I was given free reign to shoot the whole show, and from side of stage too, so it was really cool having time to pick my shots and see the show from a different viewpoint. The Shepherds Bush Empire is a venue I have always wanted to photograph in (I love the look of old theatres with galleries and private boxes) so it was a fantastic experience for me, one I'll never forget.

With access to the side of stage I decided it was an ideal opportunity to create a large scale composite image. My aim was to try capture the scale of the venue, the enthusiasm of the band's loyal fans, the constant onstage movement and a view not always seen from an audience perspective. This included seeing Billy and Josh's Dad who is the drum tech, normally hidden behind Charlotte's bass cabs! I used 29 photos to create this image, deciding on shots of each band member overlaid to try to show the dynamism in their performance.

Here are some more shots from a simply awesome evening. I loved every second! For more info on The Subways and to get yourself their latest (brilliant) album visit their website www.thesubways.net.
