Last Saturday I covered the Gun Fingers club Halloween night with guest DJ Paul Woolford, known as Special Request: @s_p_e_c_i_a_l_r_e_q_u_e_s_t @gunfingersox @thebullingdon
Although I have done many club photography shoots at this venue, The Bullingdon Oxford. For an event photographer this was a challenging shoot as the DJ Paul had requested that the venue did not use any lights. Shooting in a near pitch black room is not ideal from a photographers point of view. I used flash bounced from a large reflector and mostly long exposure to try and catch what ambient light there was to create some atmosphere.
Paul Woolford is a UK dance music producer and DJ who also uses aliases Bobby Peru and Special Request, such as on the underground hit Erotic Discourse. Paul grew up in Leeds with his brother Mark. Paul was inspired by the club night Back to Basics, eventually becoming a resident there. Wikipedia
I normally associate Gun Fingers club nights with Grime music but Paul played a stonking Hardcore set which went down a storm.
Here are some of my photos from the night: –
