Long time listener, first time caller here! My name is Gareth. Briefly, I went to Berklee College of Music as a singer and dabble a bit in the ol' Gypsy Jazz guitar. I found myself in Paris absorbing as much as I could and wanted to give back to the community, so I regularly pop over from Massachusetts (I'm in Paris right now, actually) and photograph some of the artists that play at my favorite places. I've become friends with Christoph et Julien Brunard (who have residencies at MONK and Au Clairon Des Chausseurs) and the other Brunard, William (that plays with Angelo Debarre, Bireli Lagrene, etc) but try to bounce around and see and photograph as many players as I have the energy for!
I thought I'd post some links here for all to enjoy, as I mainly just give the photos to the artists for promo materials (and nobody else looks at my website, anyway). Hopefully, you'll find some shots you enjoy and, if you see a photographer bouncing around that sometimes ends up singing on stage, say hello!
The main blog where I post my photos:
A fun evening with Christoph and Julien at MONK and Au Clairon:
A few Angelo Debarre evenings (with Aurore Voilqué, as well)
And my Instagram if you enjoy black and white Street Photography 😊
Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy!
