Event Photography from Music in the Park

What’s Occurring
Ipswich music day in the park- This Blank Page

Last month we went to music in the park in Christchurch Park Ipswich. We wanted to see the band of Jon-Luke’s guitar tutor play.  The band is called This Blank Page.

I wanted to capture some images akin to those taken in the late seventies of bands like The Clash and Sex Pistols. This isn’t anything like the style of This Blank Page. Anyway, I just went armed with my camera and a 50mm lens 🙂 After Darryl saw his photographs he said, “We were very impressed with the photos, we have had a lot of people come and take photos at gigs, and the ones you took are definitely some of the best we have seen”.

He's also there singer 🙂

The image above scooped a bronze award in the SWPP monthly competitions for event photography, which is cool 🙂

The drummer was almost in complete darkness at the back of the unlit stage.

And while we’re on the theme of music, here are a few photographs of Jon-Luke that I took last year in the studio.

Jon-Luke playing his guitar, which if I remember correctly is a Les Paul design as used by Slash, Jimmy Page and countless other guitar legends. Oh well maybe one day... 🙂
