I have had the fortune of travelling whilst serving in the military and with my second career at the Home office I think I have come across at some time or another just about every type of person imaginable, you discipline yourself not to stereotype and take people on face value for who they really are. Every now and again though you meet people who totally give your wavering pre conceptions a kick up the backside and keep you on that good path.
Meet Outright Resistance, a Stevenage in Hertfordshire based Heavy metal band that are preparing for a European tour as this goes to print. What these pictures can't tell you is what a really nice bunch of guys they are. They are very polite, softly spoken, modest and self deprecating and an absolute pleasure to meet and photograph. In the situation where we met there were several photographers eagerly waiting to take their photographs with various levels of professional experience. They took it all in their stride and handled it with great humour and humility.They have some music out on You Tube so if this genre is of interest please go check them out. It was really great to find out a bit about each of them and I really wish them every success now and in the future, they are chasing their dream and putting in the hard work up front as a foundation for a prosperous future and that is something we can all learn from.
