Live Music Pix / John W. King Photography – Mini Portfolio

Hi, I’m John W. King, thanks for checking out my mini-portfolio. I specialise in Live Music photography at gigs and festivals, from rising stars playing small venues, to massive international stars.

If you have any questions, please contact me via direct message on any of the social media channels above.  ...
