Thanks to the lovely people at Shout4Music, I was given a photopass for The Courteeners at O2 Shepherd’s Bush earlier this week. My first time shooting at Shepherd’s Bush (apart from sneaking my camera in for Jake Bugg earlier in the year!), I was pretty excited. Three songs is a bit of a bitch though, but luckily there were only two other photogs to work around, so could get the shots that I needed fairly quickly. My first time seeing The Courteeners as well, and they were nothing short of brilliant. Liam knows how to work a crowd (and subtly work a photographer), and lucky for me the lighting was spot on, which I guess you expect of bigger venues.
Check out the better shots on Shout4Music here, and a few more below. I took two lenses but only ended up using my 17-55mm, which I’m finding is a great all-rounder. Really enjoyed myself, bring on more bigger venue opportunities please!
