Shed Seven Music Photography

On tour with Shed Seven

Just before Christmas, I headed out on the road with the band Shed Seven. Perhaps best known for their singles Going for Gold and Chasing Rainbows, the boys are enjoying a bit of a resurgence of late and have released a new album, Instant Pleasures.

Whilst a lot of music photographers get to shoot in the pit, I wanted to capture the dynamic of the backstage life.. stuff that your average Shed Seven fan doesn’t get to see. The boys getting ready to play gigs, the nervous tension, the waiting and the glamour.. actually there is no glamour fact fans. Backstage of gigs, it’s just dressing rooms the size of cupboards and techs carrying stuff.

This is the sort of stuff I like to do for my soul – no flash… embracing all the scuffed walls, and backstage life as it is.. no polish… no big hero shot… just little tiny moments that for me, are way more interesting that the big shot of one of the guys front and centre. I’ve thrown a handful of pit shots in here too cos ya know, I could.

Anyway, have a look, let me know what you think.  A massive shout out to the Shed Seven geezers (and their techs) for letting my hang round their dressing room/tour bus/backstage, for getting on their nerves and generally wondering what the hell it was I was up to.

The Shed Seven tour continues in Australia in April, but you can catch some of their summer shows in the UK in June.
