Daughtry Manchester academy 2016 supported by Strange Bones
I saw a facebook post, from a mutual friends of the wifes looking for a photographer as his usual guy had cancelled.
The gig was in Manchester thats all I knew, I then realised the post was from 4 hours earlier so I assumed that the position would have been filled, as there are a lot of photographers around my area.
I messaged the person in question, Mark and asked if he still needed someone and he said he did. Turns out it was only the Daughtry gig!!
I like Daughtry and this my first 'Big' gig in an official capacity. Free tickets AND get to photograph a big band.
I met some cool photographers in the pit (Dave owen), and some not so cool ones too.
This though has opened the door for future events, I have just covered Steve Vai (next blog post, with a gig review)
and some more in the upcoming months, just awaiting confirmation!
watch this space :)
