The Levellers visited Bexhill De La Warr Pavillion on the 22nd July 2018, as part of their accoustic tour ‘We the Collective’. I just happened to be there and a mighty good evening it was too.

Anyone who lives in Lewes will have had the Viva Lewes! magazine through their letter box. It’s a fantastic local publication and one of my favourite parts is the “Where we Work” feature, where four local professionals are pictured in their place of work (the clue is in the name, huh?) by a local photographer.
Well for April’s magazine, that photographer was yours truly and the professionals are Children’s Authors. Who knew that there was such a proliferation of creative talent in this small town?
This was a fantastic piece of work to be involved in. The project gave me the opportunity to meet with some wonderfully talented people, find out about their work and their history (I’m nosey, what can I say?) and get a little creative myself. Here are a selection of the photos we took during the project.
The featured authors are:
For anyone interested in the geeky aspects of this, the camera used was a Fuji X-t2 with 16-56 2.8 WR lens. The strobe for Matt and Will’s photos was a Godox 860ii, with Magmod modifiers for Matt’s portrait and a Saberstrip for Will’s. For the photos of Leigh and Miriam, I used a Godox AD200 with the Westcott Orb softbox.
It doesn’t seem five years ago that I documented my first Wedding Present mini festival at Concorde 2 in Brighton, but then it also doesnt seem two days ago that I was getting ready to shoot this years eclectic musical extravaganza, courtesy of David Gedge of The Wedding Present. Nevertheless, we are now at the end of an unforgettable weekend of fantastic music and all that is left is to share the photos.
