Resident Photographer announced by Fodens Band

Posted by Mark Wilkinson on 27 November 2008

Fodens Band are pleased to announce that 4barsrest photographer, Ian Clowes, has been appointed as the band’s resident photographer.  Ian has been working with the band throughout 2008 and the partnership has resulted in a photo book capturing the band’s triumphant Tameside outing and a series of large format prints that were first displayed during a Patron’s concert earlier this year.

To mark the appointment Ian donated a large format print of the Band (taken at the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester) signed by all the band members, which was auctioned during a Fodens concert last week with 'Young Musician of the Year' Peter Moore.

Mark Wilkinson commented  ‘ We are very pleased to have forged this relationship with Ian and are looking forward to exhibiting  Ian’s prints and books at selected concerts during 2009.  Uniquely signed by band members these will be sold with all profits going to band funds.  The prints will be updated on the bands new look website in due course but in the mean time people can view then on Ian’s own site at’

For any conductor and every audience, Foden’s Band is a musical Magic Carpet. It continually takes the listener to places that few other ensembles rarely even approach Howard Snell
