I met Simon Atkinson at a festival a couple of years ago and I’m glad I did. Atkinson clicks and snaps photographs like no one I’ve ever seen. His images – his music shots, in particular – are full of life, emotion and energy. It invariably makes me wish I’d taken them. Now based in Melbourne, Atkinson also has a passion for taking photos of people, bicycles and landscapes.
