Mike Catherall DJ Press Shoot

Mike Catherall and I had met years ago when I was documenting a dance music event and he was DJing. He remembered me from taking his photo that night and when he needed press shots doing he thought to contact me - which was nice!

Mike was due to be in Birmingham DJing at Cream so we arranged for his shoot to be on the same day.

He had a few ideas as to what he wanted and arranged to gain access to the venue so we could use it as a location. I’d never been to Boxxed in Digbeth before so I had no idea of what we might find but that all adds to the excitement! And as it was just around the corner from the Custard Factory which I know well, I knew there’s was plenty of good locations round if the venue didn’t work out.

I met up with Mike and we scouted about for locations he liked the look of, did our outdoor shots then went down to the venue. I was really pleased with what we found there and with the last few set ups we completed our shoot.

I used a mix of daylight/ambient/off camera flash in the shots to add variety to the mood, so Mike has a selection of finals images controlling his brand that can be used in a variety of ways such as EP covers, flyers and other promotional outputs. I'm really looking forward to seeing all the different applications Mike’s images will be used in - seeing them with graphics really adds another dimension.

Thanks for reading.
