I had the great experience of covering three days of the Manchester Jazz Festival at the end of May in 2019. I’d never previously had the opportunity to shoot a live music event before, and to be able to combine my interests in photography, videography and music was something I’d wanted to try out for a long time. The range of brilliant artists and the variety of performance spaces across the city made for a really diverse, creative and exciting festival, and one that I thoroughly enjoyed being a small part of.
