I'm always fascintaed by the people who managed to get to the front and hold their position and more often than not for many hours before the gig or festival starts. These are die hard fans who have waited along time to get as close as possible to the stage. I love photographing the front row and over the years built up a collection of images from the pit. Most artists and venues give photographers three songs and no flash. You never know what to expect until the show starts and you never know who will be standing directly behind you. In the space of 15 minutes I make sure I try to capture the excitment of the front.
