It’s been a while since i’ve properly photographed a gig, so i was super excited to charge up my camera and get out to see Mellor play Sub 89 in the local town of Reading. Mellor are an infectious indie pop band from Berkshire with plenty of catchy songs to their name. The stage tonight was the BBC Radio ‘Introducing’ Christmas Party where a number of up and coming acts are showcased to the audience. Sub 89 is a great venue, with really nice lighting and brilliant sound, yet it still retains that gritty club vibe that matches the sound and presence of Mellor so well.
I’ve worked with and photographed Mellor a number of times now and they’re always so much fun and easy going, it was great being this close to them at an important show and being able to great some good shots for them.
I’ll leave you with some of my favourites from the gig, i wanted to capture solid portraits of each individual member and also a few band style shots to show the feel of the venue and the energy of the band, i think the mix of photos is well balanced and captures their style nicely. Please give the guys a listen here and if you see them playing near you soon, make sure you get out and support new music!
