DaddysGotSweets is also known by her real name Beth, a spirited photographer from Wales but now residing in London. Her work is based mainly around documenting nightlife – an industry that she is extremely passionate about, with music on of the fundamentals of her life. Beth’s photos reflect her deep, unwavering love for clubs and electronic music.

Name? Beth.

Age? 29.

From/Location? Wales.

How long have you considered yourself a photographer? I’ve been saying five years for at least three years now, so probably about eight years. Although I guess it was only after three years that I thought, “Yeah, I can do this.” So five years. Or eight.

Camera of choice? Nikon (d600).

Specialist area of expertise? Parties and peoples.

Inspirations? Marc De Groot and Nick Ensing for me were the pioneers of party photography. It was never a conscious, “Wow I want to do that” but I definitely remembered taking an interest in what they do. Also an amazing book called ‘Last Nights Party’, the photos were naughty and raw and it really made me realise that photos can be real instead of just glamourised and polished.

Tell me a little bit about your selection of photos? The photos I’ve chosen don’t have so much of a theme, they’re just images that stuck out to me. I never wanted to be a photographer, for me I’m a raver, I love music and partying, the photography is a by-product of that. So the images aren’t so much “Wow incredible crowd shot of amazing production” because that’s never what I set out to do, I prefer images that convey an emotion, tell a story or encourage the viewer to create a story in their own imagination.
