Upon returning from my recent trip to Nashville to cover the 48th Annual CMA Awards for the BBC, I was interviewed by Gig Photographer.com, talking about the challenges and rewards of shooting country music’s biggest night of the year.
Here’s a snippet of the interview…
So Ant, you have just finished shooting the Country Music Awards 2014!
Yeah, I always think November’s going to be a quick straightforward gig because it’s just one night but it never ends up that way – the day pretty much started at 4am for me and ended a couple of days later. The Awards are more than just the televised event – you’ve got the red carpet arrivals plus because it’s the most important event in the country music calendar, the whole week is taken up with promo stuff which I was also involved in. It’s become CMA week, so shooting content that is either directly related to the CMA Awards or related to upcoming UK events makes it convenient since the boys are already in town.
