Sending us off into the sixth week of our photographer series is Tyrell Willock. He’s been shooting for us since 2017, his first show being the joint Young M.A and Tommy Genesis concert. Ty’s got a clean eye for the rule of thirds, as you’ll see below, which might seem like an easy feat to accomplish, but during shows anything can throw your framing off – sometimes even a crop can’t save you. He’s a reliable and friendly addition to our pool of contributors, so have a read of his favourite shows below.

Masego at o2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, 2018

“Enjoyment – It’s so important to enjoy what you do. I have a love for music, so I get to enjoy capturing live performances as well as enjoying sounds from Masego. I believe your energy will shine through your enjoyment, making you much more approachable at live shows.”

Amber Mark at Scala, 2019

“Reliability – I was asked to cover Amber Mark’s show, as someone had dropped out last minute. It was a strike of luck too, as I was capturing an artist heavily including within my music playlists. You never know what can happen when taking a last minute show, as I met some important contacts throughout the night too.”

Headie One at o2 Academy Brixton, 2019

“Faith – Denied entry into the venue, bad run in with security staff and restricted access around the venue! Those were just some of the things that happened on a cold Sunday night, with a scheduled trip back to the Midlands. Your faith is tested through the setbacks thrown at you. Ultimately, I captured most of the show as a fan, in the mosh pits, but you can rate the content out of 10!”

Santi at Islington Assembly Hall, 2019

“Connect – After 3 songs, I tend to scream at fellow photographers, “what’s your name” and “can I get your socials”! Networking and connecting with other creatives will not only increase your contacts, but will enhance your people skills in life. Santi had a great vibe and I was able to see which creative was enjoying the show, leading to the questions above.”

The Ends Festival, 2019

“Capitalize – My first ever festival for LiS and it was a great one! I capitalized on meeting new creatives, sharing my energy and taking advantage of the access around the festival, which led me on stage and backstage with NSG. Through this, I went on to shoot at their Nottingham and London tour dates.”
