I had stopped pursuing band photograph previously because 1) there’s no money in it 2) I thought it was limiting. Recently though I have been having ideas for model shoots but nothing that really suited the average model plus it was a lot of faff (and possible expense) to sort out a model myself. Sa-da-kO contacted me for a photo shoot and the idea just clicked. Here are the results. If more bands are willing to put up with me ordering them around then I’ll do a shoot at a cut down price.
Winners of Ready To Rumble Unsigned 2011 Population Four have been dealt a blow today with the leaving of Simon from the band. I photographed the winners as their prize right in front of the mirror ball in Blackpool.
Now the future of Population Four is uncertain. They will be playing their last gig on the 23rd of December with Simon at Rampage, Roper Hall. After that who knows.
An ominous start to December with the news that both March and Stormcorporation have split up. Simply problems in both bands just got to a head and that was that. I’ve been photographing Stormcorporation since their early days and have also done a photo shoot with March. Not a good sign for the Preston music scene when two big hitters suddenly fall.
