The Gig Economy 2: Lock Horns

A few years back I did the first photo shoot of a death metal band, Lock Horns – and they became the subject of this first blog post.

In June 2018, they released their first album Molon Labe – spotify link – and launched it at a home town gig in Bangor, Co Down.  The band were sounding and looking magnificent with a great set showcasing much of the album.

I used the usual Canon full frame digital with various prime lenses – I brought the Olympus OM20 with Tri-X with an idea to shoot on film.  But mingling with a metal audience doesn’t lend itself to manual focussing and careful metering, so digital it was.
