As you can see from a collection of his choice snaps, Isha Shah has a clear passion for live music. For the 22-year-old it was his gateway to becoming a photographer, a gig that not only gave him access to artists but also allowed him to work creatively in the editing room.
“I first started taking photos when I was about 16 years old in sixth form. Our media course revolved around live music so from there we had to make a magazine and music video. I had always been a fan of gigs and used to go to at least one a week, sometimes everyday,” Isha says. “It became a perfect place to practice and expand my craft, it only really clocked when I was in my second year at University studying Music Journalism that I wanted to make something of it.”
Looking to his life experiences as a source of creative encouragement, Isha tends to travel often and enjoys shooting the various faces and places that he comes across. “Anyone who considers themselves a creative and creates art from that desire or hunger is someone I’d likely to be inspired by,” he says.
