James Morrison

Even if you manage to make it to the venue in time to catch the support act, you usually only photograph them half-heartedly, saving your battery power and memory space for the main event. The lighting is also generally subdued, to allow the main act to 'shine'.

So in April, when James Morrison's only claim to fame was having the same name as The Lizard King, arriving too late to go into the pit meant grabbing a couple of sneaky shots from the edge of the stage. Then he was supporting the up and coming Corrine Bailey Rae. Today he has surpased her and is No. 1 in the UK album charts.
