I've been following In This Moment for a while now but I had to wait until last night when they brought their show to Wulfrun Hall in Wolverhampton for a chance to see and shoot them live for the first time. Whilst they might not be everyone's cup of tea music and performance wise there's no denying that they put on a show unlike anything I've seen in a long time. It's totally over the top, theatrical and dramatic and they seem to enjoy the attention and love being photographed as we were allowed to shoot the entire set from the pit which is almost unheard of these days unless you are the band's official photographer.
Needless to say there were one or two punters in the front row who complained about the 'fuckers' blocking their view. I am generally very considerate of people paying to see the show and try to stay out of their way as much as I can and there were only a handful of photographers in the pit so I really didn't feel we were obstructing anyone's view too much. Besides, unless you go to a gig and manage to get a spot right at the front there will always be 'fuckers' blocking someone's view, some of them (or quite a few from what I see shooting gigs on a regular basis) also have an annoying habit of holding their mobile phones up in the air to take pictures or film but I digress.
Here's some pictures of one of the most fun times I had in the pit in a while.
