Hemsby Rock 'n' Roll Weekender Day 1

A Seacroft staff member does a mic check on the main stage during the first day of the 49th Hemsby Rock 'n' Roll Weekender in Hemsby, October 4th, 2012.  

Back in Denver before coming out to London I happened to come across a few photos from a biannual Rock 'n' Roll themed weekender in the English Midlands. The second I saw it I knew I had to go there. Not knowing really what to expect I had two ideas of things I wanted to do while I was there and I jumped in.

The weekend is what you would imagine, 50s rockabilly enthusiasts spread their escapists wings for a weekend getting dressed up in the traditional garb, hang out, drink, and dance in a holiday village in the seaside village of Hemsby.

 The weekend was interesting to say the least. Besides covering a little bit of Manchester City winning the Premiership last season it had been a good year since doing any sort of journalistic/editorial type shooting. Much of the year shooting without looking through a viewfinder while taking candids of people on the Underground going back took a little getting used to go again. On another note I can't thank everyone who organizes the weekender and the staff of at Seacroft for being as accommodating as they were. Also to Simone who came along to assist with some portraits and making the weekend that much more entertaining.
