Ok now there are times that i have to cover a gig and not be into the music, this was one of them. However they were great to shoot and full of energy. I did feel bloody old though as the crowd were mostly 13 year olds screaming!!
By the time Dan has greeted you with an easy “hello mate”, you are in the company of a friend. He’s effortlessly comfortable with people wherever they come from and whatever they do, and somehow he manages to make the feeling mutual.
This ability to put people at ease creates the feeling of accessibility, comfort and complete honesty that’s captured in all his photography – one of his favourite memories as a photographer is running from a farmer with Carl Cox in a wheat field… With Dan the barriers are instantly down.
Dan Reid images are images with no pretence, no ambiguity but all personality.
