To celebrate the launch of our Photo Issue, we’ve selected a few of our own photographs taken over the past year or so at various events and locations around the world; from Beirut to east London, Amsterdam to Ibiza, Berlin and more. From gigs and club events, to adventures overseas and the odd things we see along the way, these are just a few of the photos that summarise DLTM’s first year of existence.

© Beth Crockatt

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.

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.

We’ve known Kenrick Nembhard for nearly 25 years. Adept with a camera, as well as paintbrushes, pencils and much more, (plus digital software too), Kenrick has a strong visual identity throughout all his work. His photographs here are from his days working the night shift (and sometimes day shift) as a paparazzo in London.

Name? Kenrick Nembhard.

Age? 36.

From/Location? South-east London.

How long have you considered yourself a photographer? Since 2010/2011 when I first started at Smart Pictures, the photo agency.

Camera of choice? Canon 500D as it was my first camera that I learned on, however I do love my Canon 1D Mark3 and I have had a Canon 1D Mark2. My smart phone is my daily driver as I use it all the time to take photos and do time lapses, which have become a staple of my work recently.

Specialist area of expertise? I would say time lapse, night time long exposures and street photography (but night time long exposures are my favorite).

Inspirations? Can’t say I’m inspired by any one thing in particular but I do look at a lot of other photographer’s work, and then try to do my thing.

Tell me a little bit about your selection of photos? This is just some of the work I carried out when I covered events for Smart Pictures – just a collection of pictures of some people you may or may not know.

I also wanted to add that I don’t Photoshop my images. Not because I don’t know how to use Photoshop but I think everyone is over-editing these days, and then calling themselves a photographer – when you should use a real set up and take a photo using your skills with the camera. Not post-editing to correct/enhance them.

Marc Sethi is a versatile photographer, who does everything from festival reportage to portraits. We love his crisp style, with composition and eye for detail/character at the centre of his lovely photographs.

Name? Marc Sethi.

Age? 38.

From/Location? London, UK.

How long have you considered yourself a photographer? Nearly seven years, but realistically only six professionally.

Camera of choice? Depends on the job, but I’m shooting a lot of personal work with the Mamiya 7 II at the moment. I love the finish on the images.

Specialist area of expertise? I’m a bit all over the shop. I love documentary and portraiture, but I’m known for music and commercial work, too.

Inspirations? From all over really. I’m constantly looking for inspiration, but a lot comes from my friends and family, constantly listening to music, and getting involved in as much as possible.

Tell me a little bit about your selection of photos? I decided to put in a variety of music shots from the last few of years. Some portraits which I was fond of from a residency in Ibiza this year, and a few from my early works with Clash magazine. I used to shoot a series where I would visit music artists in their studios, and the one of TEED was always one of my faves. And then there’s the MOAT. Arguably one of the finest music venues in the world. Hope you like them!

We met Micaela McLucas at our friend Rob Lang’s exhibition last year. A mutual friend of ours, we approached her to join the Photo Issue and really impressed with her vibrant images. Micaela is an adventurer and her camera is an extension of herself, recording her antics around the world.

Name? Micaela McLucas.

Age? 28 (going on 17).

From/Location? From Los Angeles – now based in the polar opposite, London.

How long have you considered yourself a photographer? There was never any question since my childhood that I was, and would be forever, some ridiculous over the top artist. That bubble burst when I moved to New York at 21 but it did guide my accidental career path into photography – so I guess I’ve been dedicating my life to photography for the past seven years but I’ve been zigzagging on this crazy road my whole life.

Camera of choice? I’ve always been a dedicated Canon supporter but having recently started shooting on Hasselblad. Nothing else compares.

Specialist area of expertise? Getting weird (weirder and weirder). I’ve definitely made it my niche speciality to weave dreams out of my surroundings, my projects, my lovers. It comes out in my work very loudly – I’m known for my use of color and composition in taking each project beyond a typical portrait.

Inspirations? Spirit, music, love, the sun, and most importantly, the ocean.

Tell me a little bit about your selection of photos? This is a collection from the year 2016 – it’s been a million times more beautiful than I could have ever dreamed…

Pablo Allison is a Mexican/English artist whose documentary photography carries a strong underlying theme. He tells stories, explores day to day living and peels back many of society’s invisible layers in a sensitive and honest manner.

Name? Pablo Allison.

Age? 34.

From/Location? Mexico/UK, location, Mexico City.

How long have you considered yourself a photographer? I don’t really know, that’s always a complicated question for me to answer but I would probably say that I have been using the camera since 1997.

Camera of choice? I don’t have a choice but in terms of format I tend to use 35mm.

Specialist area of expertise? N/A

Inspirations? Many aspects of art and life I would say. In terms of photographers: Paul Graham, Taryn Simon, Edmund Clark, Alec Soth, Gilles Peress and landscape photographers such as Richard Misrach and Simon Norfolk, are inspiring for me.

I also get a ton of inspiration to develop my ideas by analysing social issues, thinking of my friends existence, through my cultural heritage. Also, running inspires me a lot and stimulates my creativity, not just with photography but within a broader spectrum. Basically, life inspires me, generally speaking.

Tell me a little bit about your selection of photos? The selection is not sequential, these are just loose moments I have captured during recent weeks in Mexico. The images might fit within different projects I am working on but overall they are moments I just see as single shots that comment on the things I carry in my mind such as, isolation, imprisonment, displacement, human rights, love, solidarity… the list is too long.
