This year, I was fortunate to have been asked to photograph Download Festival for the Leicester Mercury and three other photography agencies. I knew that I would need to provide a wide coverage of the festival as I had 4 different clients requiring different images, so I hired another great photographer, Rob Gurney, to come along and help out with some photography and editing. In the end it was a logistical challenge and Rob was unable to shoot as many bands as we’d initially planned. He was able to photograph his 2 favourite acts for the weekend, Slash and Motley Crüe.
Overall, we supplied the Leicester Mercury and all three of the agencies with a wide coverage of Dowload Festival, totalling over 1000 photos! All of the photos are up on my Flickr page for you to see, but I have included my favourites below.
