A photography exhibition has been launched in London displaying the best music photography of the last year.
Both amateur and professional photography is on display at the event, which is being held at theprintspace until 11 January, with the majority of the work coming from the NME Music Photography Awards.
The images have been divided into categories including Live, Portrait, Reportage, Festivals and Under-18s, and there are also some award-winning images from professional photographers on display.
David Baird, a freelance photographer, was delighted to have his work included after winning the NME Professional Photographer
category. He told the Evening Standard: "I was so pleased to win my category and it's really nice to get that kind of recognition alongside such established and well-respected photographers.
"I always try to work closely with the artists I shoot and I'm very proud of the winning image (The Subways) because of its energy and the way it shows the band performing."
He added that competitions such as this can be really useful to photographers thanks to the exposure it offers. Indeed, in such a competitive industry, having work put on display at a prominent event can make all the difference to amateur photographers looking to break into the professional sphere.
