Andy Hamilton and Steve Ajao playing live at Bearwood Corks Club in Smethwick

I've been photographing Jazz for some years now, mostly at  Corks Club in Bearwood where Andy Hamilton and the Blue Notes play, and before that the Bear. I always work in colour, but I manage to avoid using flash as that way I get the full effect of the ambient lighting.
With my SLR I use very fast film as I often work in low light. With my little VGA quality digital camera I often get nothing, but sometimes the results can be magical and sometimes they can be what a cynic might call "arty". However it does have a wonderful knack of capturing a Jazz mood.
Take a browse around this site and watch it grow as time goes by. I do my best to keep download times as low as possible but remember this site is graphics heavy and pictures have to be shown at a reasonable quality.
