Priti Shikotra | Freelance Music Photographer

I’m Priti (pronounced pretty – simple) and I love shooting rock shows. I’m a photographer focussing primarily on live music photography and band / musician portraits. If there’s music involved, you can expect to find me there.

I’m based in Manchester, but a range of assignments have seen me travel all over the UK. I’m available for commissions all over the UK and internationally.

I’m obsessed with capturing the shot that tells a story – rolling stone style! THAT shot that takes you right back to the event. Whether it’s shooting a smaller venue with 10 people there in the crowd, or whether it’s a sold out arena show, I love to take you back to that night through the photos I take.

My clients range from magazines, to agencies, to record labels and management, to unsigned artists who are looking for their first ever PR shoot.

Clients I have been commissioned by include Jack Daniels, NME, Manchester Pale Ale, Getty Images & others.

Festivals I have covered include Park Life Festival, Leeds Festival, Bingley Festival.

Bands & Artists I’ve shot include Korn, Slipknot, Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, Sam Smith, Florence & The Machine, The Dunwells, The Struts, Foals, The Libertines, Imagine Dragons, The Virginmarys, Slaves, Taylor Swift, Usher, Ed Sheeran, Jake Bugg, Tonight Alive, The Defiled, Band of Skulls, Gavin Degraw, Skindred, The Vamps, Jessie J, Olly Murs, Ratboy, A$AP Rocky, Wiz Khalifa, The Darkness, Placebo and heaps more.( A full archive of shots are available through my agent upon request. )

I drink far too much tea and I love travelling and collecting passport stamps (devastated, Iceland and Munich aren’t on my passport!)

I’m available for tour photography also.
