The London Jazz Festival is the capital's largest pan-city music festival, taking place annually every November. Produced by Serious, the festival trail blazes pretty well all of London's key arts spaces during its 10 day tenure and draws deeply from an international wealth of musicians and artists. LJF is widely acknowledged for showcasing a stellar mix of talent from world-class artists to emerging stars - the festival successfully bridges jazz to a broader, music loving audience. Also offering nearly a third of its programme for free, many performances and interest is truly democratised.

As LJF’s official photographer since 2008, I've documented countless highlights from large scale productions at the Barbican and the Royal Festival Hall through to late night jams at Ronnie Scott's and masterclasses and workshops across the city. Series shot on a mix of Canon 5D3 & 5D2 / available light.
