During 2018 I was given the opportunity to be the official photographer at a Steampunk event.
This was the themed event that I had been to and indeed it would be
the first time I have used a portable studio or taken photographers of
professional performers on stage.
It was both a harrowing and extremely rewarding experience and I was humbled to be invited back both in 2019 and 2020 (but 2020 never went ahead due to Covid)!
This is part of a series of photographs and photo digital artwork based on the amazing Captain of the Lost Waves.
I’m not a music critic, but like most people I know when I see
something or someone special. I didn’t know what to expect when the
Captain and Muzwell the mute walked onto the stage, but all I can say is
that both myself and my wife were blown away! The vocal energy and
magical stories that this talented performer shared with the audience
was simply amazing! You can find his work on YouTube and Amazon Music,
make sure to check them out.
Anyway, I happily snapped away whilst soaking up the music and
attempted to capture the atmosphere and the energy of the performance in
my photographs, despite having to work with low lighting, which
required very low shutter speeds.
