Raymond Thomson - Deputy Editor

I am a photographer/musician/engineer living in Scotland. My passion is music and motocross and I share my work on facebook/punk4RT and facebook/madmaxmedia. When not attending gigs across Scotland and UK, I cover local and national race meetings. Shooting video and recording bands, either live or in my home studio, also keeps me busy. I love the challenge of capturing the essenceof events that I’m involved with. Music is my passion, being a musician, engineer and photographer, I love to understand the technical side but use that to capture the essence of the performance. I am not a click and shoot kind of person, I like to research my subject and do my best to express how the artists would want to be portrayed. I do like a bit of throw back to the heydays of the 60’s/70’s/80’s when it comes to taking shots of bands. I grew up on the music papers (NME/Sounds/Melody Maker) and drew influence from Pennie Smith/Jill Furmanovsky/Anton Corbijn/Bob Gruen/Adrian Boot/Charles Peterson.
