My first foray into the medium of a photo story is to celebrate all those local guys, and girls, who give up their time to play in a local rock band.
Who knows what their motivation is night after night, week after week, maybe they harbour dreams of stardom and record deals, or money and celebrity. Whatever it is, they play in dimly lit, sparsely populated venues.
Even in this one, very small corner of the world there is a massive diversity of musical styles and influences - rappers, rockers, thrash metal and just plain singer songwriters. Yet one thing unites them all, they just get a real kick out of what they do,
Then there's this photographer who gets an even bigger kick out of portraying them doing something they love.
