I’ve only ever photographed Robbie Williams once before, back in 2010 when he performed an unexpected duet with Gary Barlow. So I knew we were in for a treat. The Roundhouse is a tough place to photograph in. The light was excellent this year, but at previous shows I’ve always found it a little lacking.
Unfortunately tonight we were relegated to the balcony instead of being in the pit, which was the original plan. To say that is a pain in the backside is an understatement, but the stage was built quite far out in to the crowd tonight, so the 300mm lens was plenty for close up shots, and I’ve been wanting an opportunity to get wide shots like this at the Roundhouse for years.
Our two songs were over in a flash but I came away very pleased with the set of images.
