Last weekend I had the enormous pleasure of being one of the official photographers for the Outlines Festival.
Now in its second year, Outlines 2017 was a bigger and better event than last year, mainly due to it expanding to be a 2 day festival having added a Friday night to the programme. And I was really pleased to see that despite the rain the crowds came out and supported the event.
Highlights for me this year included the Nirvana and Pixies-influenced - and very hairy - The Wytches at the Harley, the amazingly photogenic Law Holt at Plug, the loud and punky Cowtown at Queens Social Club and the R&B with attitude of Bossy Love. But one of the proudest moments was photographing The Seamonsters - a band from my son's school - playing to a large crowd at 6PM on a Friday night in the smallest room in Plug. They were excellent and hopefully this will be the stepping stone to greatness...
Anyway, below are a selection of the photos I took (you can see them all in the Outlines 2017 gallery here)
