I'm Simon Reed, a freelance photographer specialising in Music and Events and I'm based in the Surrey Hills around an hour from London. Most of my images are shot in London and in south coast venues, but I'm available to take pictures across the whole of the UK and beyond.
My work has been published in national newspapers and books, my photographs are syndicated worldwide via the WENN picture agency, and I'm also a regular contributor to RockShot music and culture magazine.
There aren't many things I've done that compare to the thrill of being between the crowd and the stage in a big theatre with three songs in which to nail your pictures. There are no second chances with this type of photography; you get it right first time, or not at all.
Whilst I'm predominantly a live music photographer, I also undertake band and individual portraiture work and really enjoy collaborating with emerging talent. If that's you, then it would be great to hear from you.
