Photos: The Tea Party - Metro Theatre - 23 June 2019

I really don’t get tired of photographing live music. It’s how I learnt to be a photographer. I would take/sneak my camera into every show I went to and, in the beginning, it really was just about having that keepsake for myself - like an old ticket stub to prove or remember that I was there. Eventually, I took it more seriously and started shooting for publications, which then led to portrait work, formal study/training and a very diverse range of work that now fills up my time.

But every now and then, I still sneak my camera in to a show and shoot for myself and my love of music and performance.

I also really don’t get tired of seeing The Tea Party live. I’ve seen them so many times that I can predict the setlist now. But they still know how to put on a great rock show.
