On Sunday night I had the pleasure of shooting my favourite group of lads, Zepher. This is the second time I've gotten the chance to take their photos and this time I was put under pressure by taking my first ever set of gig photos. I was thrilled to have my first attempt with them though, as I adore each of them and will happily take their photo whenever they want, which I think will be often after how happy they were with these images. It was a huge weight off of my shoulders when they told me how much they loved them, I really didn't know if I would be any good at this type of photography but I have given myself a strong pat on the back after seeing these.
It was so much fun getting close and personal, capturing their performance in photo form. The gig itself was at one of Bristol most loved venues, The Fleece. Home to many clubnights and tribute bands like Guns 2 Roses, The Doors Alive and Novana, sounds like a laugh doesn't it? I'm yet to see a tribute band but I'm intrigued at the thought of it, as it's not like I'll be able to see Nirvana live, so why not enjoy a night of their music performed by a look-a-like band? Sounds like fun! The night I attended wasn't for a cheesy cover band though, it was for their Night Before Halloween event which hosted dozens of bands playing from 1.30pm till later that evening. I sadly missed the other bands though due to working all day, but made it just in time to see the boys.
You may of caught my last post on the band, where I shot some images for their Facebook page and took the opportunity to write about them and share some of their music with you, but if you missed it you can have a read here. It was a pleasure hearing them live once again, this time surprising me with some new material as well as my favourite track of theirs, She Trouble. I pestered Louis a few times to put it on the set list for me and he pulled through! It's my favourite and a definite crowd-pleaser.
If you're heading to Bristol or happen to be a local then keep your eye out for nights on at The Fleece, and definitely keep watch of Zepher and their social medias for upcoming events and new releases from them. The Bristol music scene is ecstatic so I highly recommend a night of seeing talented bands come together to support each other and play the music they are so passionate about.
Many thanks to the guys of Zepher for having faith in me and bringing me along, I had a blast!
