2013 as a MetalTalk tog has been an interesting journey and here are ten of my favourite photos I've taken for MetalTalk over the past year.
I adore the lone crowd surfer at the Hypocrisy gig basically because it was one of those "right place at the right time" kinda lucky shots.
I usually wear black in the photo pit so that I am not a distraction to the band but it is always good when you get a wave, as I did from Saxon's Nibbs Carter. The rest, well I do love a guy with a stringed instrument especially if he knows how to wield it rock star style like Luke Gunn from Estrella or bass player Swoggle from The Treatment.
My highlights this year would have to be Les-Fest (Scotland's only rock and metal festival), Airbourne and photographing the amazing Vivian Campbell.
2014 is already shaping up to be a good year and I can see finding my top ten for next year isn't going to be easy.
