Will

Reviewer

Having spent all of his teens in the smallest venues, scoping out the most exciting up-and-coming bands he could find, Will has decided to take early mosh retirement and can usually be found at the back of the pit hunting for the best view. With a passion for talking, reviewing live performances seemed like a logical step to take and he's really excited to be a part of the DTF team.

Anthony

Photographer

Anthony has been into photography since his early teens, even creating his own darkroom in his bedroom at 16! He is self taught in everything he does and still keen to learn. Since his first gig in 1983 he has been hooked on rock/metal music with his first taste of live photography was in 1987 when 'The Alarm' visited his home town and ignited a passion for gig photography. However, with life getting in the way, it became difficult to pursue this avenue of photography, so instead he turned his attentions to Landscape and Portraiture work. With the passion for live music still very much burning, he found a way back into venues, and we are very happy that he did.
