At the end of 2011, I shot the Chase and Status gig at Bournemouth BIC. The label loved the shots and have chosen one of them to be used for the cover if the band's new live DVD, which was shot at Brixton Academy. Really happy how it looks and check out the trailer below, it looks amazing. The DVD out beginning of April.
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.
