I’m Damian John, a Birmingham UK based photographer who specialises in live music and band photography.

I spent years performing onstage but somewhere along the way swapped my bass guitar for a camera and I’ve never looked back. I can usually be found down the front of gigs with crowd surfers tumbling above my head, trying to capture the best images possible no matter what the venue may throw at me.

I pride myself on working alongside underground artists. I know from first hand experience just how hard these bands work on relentlessly gigging, writing and staying current in such a fast moving world and I believe that it’s these bands who deserve our support. I find working with underground bands incredibly rewarding and will always strive to support my local scene.
