Live Music & Event photography by Rich Ward, based in Birmingham, Worcestershire.
Species: Snappius Moronicus
Habitat: Native to the Midlands region of the UK but is also known to travel frequently throughout the UK. Thrives in shaded areas and dimly lit environments, but will also bloom in festival sunshine. Commonly found in Genting Arena, Wolverhampton Civic, Birmingham Symphony Hall, or small clubs such as The Robin 2 in Bilston or Evesham's Iron Road.
A natural forager, with main food sources being Real Ale, cheese baps, and English breakfast tea.
Benefitting from opposable thumbs, Snappius Moronicus has favoured the use of Nikon DSLRs exclusively as his tools of choice. Currently he uses a D3s and D800.
