I'm Richard Nolan, freelance photographer and retoucher based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. From my initial gig-going roots, I've developed a passion for music photography and over the last five years have progressed from mostly just attending gigs to preferably shooting them – I love live music events and capturing the frenetic stage activity and forever changing light patterns that photographing them from the pit brings.


Specialising in live music events, band portraiture and currently seeking commissions for music publications. Live music images available for licensing – please contact me for further information.
