If you have been brought here by either meeting me at a gig or festival, or maybe just from some loose social media connections, then you will probably want to have a look at the Galleries first.
I'm out and about at a gig most weeks, see my calendar to see where I'm hoping to be next, and please say hello if you spot me.
The snapagig.com facebook page is much more frequently updated, so please like and share the posts with your friends and family.
For a limited time I'll treat any new facebook page 'liker', with a welcome present of a free downloadable photo file of any one of the images shown on this site or facebook, as long as it's for your own personal use (non commercial). Just send me a message requesting the file with your email address.
Please get in touch with any photo ideas you might have, or shows you need reviewing, either bands or solo artists, major festivals or local pubs, national or local media - the whole range of live music events considered.
Finally...all the content you will see on here is personally shot by me, therefore all the images are mine, but if you do want to share any of them on social media, then I'm happy for you to do so, as long as you keep the snapagig.com watermark on, or put a link to this site, or a link to the Facebook site in your post.
I don't bark too much, but I'll bite if any of my images are stolen!
