Photo Galleries 2021 – Submission Info

Photo Galleries 2021

Last year closed the doors (several times) on many photographers being able to access their usual subject matter. What was clear though was that you can’t curb creativity for long, and many of you shared your lockdown images with us, which was much appreciated and a source of inspiration. The introduction of themed photo galleries also brought some welcome relief from the ever-present Covid restrictions. As we’re still not quite out the other end of the tunnel, we’ll be compiling different galleries bi-monthly this year. Thanks for your suggestions for new themes; we’ve incorporated as many as possible. As each one draws near, there will be reminder posts on Instagram and Twitter and, for easy reference, all details can be found below. In addition to these, if you have a photographic project or mixed portfolio you’d like us to consider for feature, drop us an email to discuss, with a brief outline and link to your work.

Best Music Shots of 2020

Picture this!

Given the devastating impact on the live music scene this year, we debated whether to go ahead with the annual Best Music Shots gallery. However, popular opinion said yes so here we are and, looking at the photos submitted, what a good call that was. All images have been taken either outside of lockdown or at Covid-safe / socially distanced events and it’s definitely good for the soul to remember those moments. Hopefully, things are slowly mending; whatever happens next one thing’s for sure, we’ll never take easy access to live music for granted again.

Delighted to have some of our regular photographers involved here – your contributions are always massively appreciated. And equally it’s great to have some new faces taking part – you’re all most welcome and we hope to see more from you in the future.

Photos are in no particular order, mixed by genre and style, so find a comfy seat and check them all out to avoid missing anything… enjoy.

2020 Through the Lens

“It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera… they are made with the eye, heart and head” – Henri Cartier-Bresson

This year, maybe more than any other in recent times, the creation of images that either captured or diverted away from the events around us has been especially important. A reflection of difficult times or a reminder that there’s lots of good stuff in the world too, we asked photographers to share their favourite shots of the year – any style or subject.

As with all our galleries, there is no specific order; the images have been mixed by format and content so enjoy from start to finish…

Gallery – Portraits

The art of portrait photography means many things to many people. For this gallery, we’ve included both posed and candid shots, all of which capture the essence of the subject however and wherever they were taken. As Robert Frank said, “There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment.” 

The images featured are in no particular order other than to be mixed by style and subject matter so please scroll all the way through and enjoy…
