Event photography can be pretty fun! Especially if there’s live music, a BBQ and cocktails involved. This combination usually leads to a lot of people having a great time, and so helps me – the photographer – do my job. You’re only as good as your subject, after all (Scott Kelby, 2016).
Over the bank Holiday, the Orange tree in Loughborough held Alfresco, an all-day outdoor music, food and drink event to raise money for the charity Coping With Cancer. Over a grand was raised, which in itself is brilliant, and the event obviously went down as well with the attendees as the cocktails did!
I was the photographer at varying points of the day/night, and I’m actually sad that I didn’t get to see all of the 6 acts! What I did get to see and shoot, though, was an awesome, eclectic mix of artists, and a lot of happy faces despite the day being a little grey.
Here’s a selection of my favourite shots from the event, and also some links for you to check out:
