Beth Crockatt is a stalwart of music and events photography. She’s been around for a few years, making a living by documenting an industry she loves and adores. Beth’s has a knack of catching good times as they happen, transferring the energy of an unforgettable night into her images with panache.

Name? Beth Crockatt.

Age? 33.

From/Location? I’m a bit of nomad but currently live in London.

How long have you considered yourself a photographer? Working in clubs and the music industry since I was 15 and regularly for various publications for the past 10 years.

Camera of choice? Nikon D4.

Specialist area of expertise? Portraits, PR and badly lit places…

Inspirations? Martin Parr and David LaChapelle.

Tell me a little bit about your selection of photos? I have been lucky enough to travel around the world to attend some amazing parties and experience once in a lifetime moments, which I am forever grateful for. This said, as a photojournalist no matter how beautiful (and sometimes bizarre) the situations I was thrown into were, I always seemed to come back to the close up images – the personal shots of people just lost and dancing rather than the destination, the main booking, or whatever. Club events look right until you get down to the bare bones of the night and the people, and I have tried to reflect that in my selection here.

Tell me a little bit about your selection of photos? The photos I’ve selected here are from some of my favourite events I’ve worked on in the last year, showcasing the diversity of places that I shoot. From dark sweaty raves in East London to festivals in the jungles of Tulum, I am always trying to capture the atmosphere of any given moment. These images capture exactly what I saw at that point, and are a form of nostalgia that I can now share with you.
