Concert Photographer – Capturing an exceptional evening with ‘Kind of Queen’ Manche – Normandy.
I’ve been capturing events and concerts for several years now as part of my photography business. I’ve had the privilege to capture many moving D-Day commemoration concerts with veterans. I’ve also had the honour of capturing several concerts in Paris, notably outdoor concert in front to the Eiffel tower and inside the famous ‘Eglise de la Madelaine’ church with American choirs.
This concert, on the other hand was a wonderful foot-stomping, sing-a-long evening by the wonderful ‘Kind of Queen’ at the Condé Espace concert venue here in Manche Normandy.
Kind of Queen don’t consider themselves a tribute band. They’re are a group of talented musicians and singers who already play in various configurations within several groups reproducing both French and English speaking hits who enjoy paying homage to Queen. The lead singer Samuel’s voice is strong and works well as the unforgettable Freddie Mercury and it’s very easy to lose yourself in the hits, imagining you’re at a real Queen concert.
As Queen songs are a love of mine already it was very easy to enjoy the fabulous combination of doing the photography that I love whilst simultaneously grinning from ear to ear and singing along to all the classic hits the Kind of Queen did so well.

Keep up the great work Samuel, Hervé, Kevin, Nicolas and Alain. I can’t wait to see you live again.
