We were just googling some quotations about photos and photography that we thought would be quite pertinent here, but we think we know what they stand for already - without anybody famous or respected in the field attached to it.

Photography is immediate, intimate and inspirational. Moments captured with split-second judgement frame the bands, artists and events we love and experience in their natural surroundings, in a moment of reverie, during a live show. At the heart of photography is the people, the actual real-life human beings behind the music. We think there's something hugely special about photos and as such we're paying special homage to the photographers whose work and talent make the visual side of The 405 something of which we are very proud.

If you'd like to work with The 405 next year, email us.
