Best kept festival secret in UK ... Africa Oye. Free, easy central location, great music and a brilliant weekend weather wise. I've been covering this festival for ArenaPAL since 2006 and it has opened up loads of doors for me as a photographer. I've built up a massive collection of world music artists, talked to people from all around the planet and been invited to cover loads of other gigs, events and festivals off the back of it. I'm featuring loads from 2014 on my Liverpool photographer Tumblr blog, so if you want to see more head over via the jump. Loads of images on there, both recent and from my archive. Click on 'Festivals' on the left hand menu.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch to licence any of these images directly from me. Or if you are planning a world music event in the UK / Europe give me a shout and if I am available I'd love to come along and do some photography.music, world, AfricaOye Author: David J Colbran
"As a new business, it was very important to me to get the right publicity photographs for my marketing materials. When I met David, he listened carefully to what I was trying to achieve with my brand, and then produced fabulous photographs that were exactly what I needed. He was extremely professional throughout but also nice and friendly. Myself and my clients found it easy to relax with him, which was essential to create the right vibe for the shoot. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone."
