Johnny McDaid from Snow Patrol, performing at the launch of their new album Wildness at the Islington Assembly Hall in London. I like this shot because it captures Johnny's intensity as he played but appears so perfectly posed he could have been a sitting for portrait.

I have been capturing images for over 40 years having started with a 110 instamatic in the 1970s and graduating to 35mm in the 1980s. I have been fortunate enough to travel extensively and have always taken pictures as I went using everything from instant film to 35mm to 120mm to digital. In a society where camera phones are ubiquitous and the internet bombards us with images, I do my best to capture the spaces in between what everyone else sees. I still make extensive use of my film cameras, alongside digital cameras, focusing on using the best equipment to capture a specific moment.
