Music bloggers and photographers wanted – Blank Slate Creative

Blank Slate Creative are looking for music bloggers and music photographers for 2018

Manic Street Preachers - Times Square Newcastle - August 2017 crowd shot

Manic Street Preachers – Times Square Newcastle – August 2017

We have more offers for cool gigs and new albums than we can currently manage. At present, we focus on rock, indie, punk and metal but we are able to expand into other areas depending on demand. Opportunities are available for those with a passion for music and a knack for capturing the moment.

  • Gigs (photo features and live reviews)

  • Album reviews

  • Interviews

We’re looking for people with a strong focus on quality content, as opposed to quantity. Live gig coverage and new albums up for review that kinda thing. We’re a small team at present and would like to bring more music fans in to help with that side of our blogging.

Writing skills are essential. Experience not necessarily an issue, although willingness to embrace feedback and guidance from the editor is a must. You’ll need access to a computer or device suitable for writing reviews and internet access to email your content in.


You’ll need your own gear, capable of delivering pro-standard photos. Touring bands tend to be access only but there are the occasionally paid shoots and second shooter duties on offer to reliable togs.

We’re also able to help tutor photographers who’d like to learn the ropes.

Over 18s only as venues we cover tend to have age restrictions.

We are re-introducing an old feature that has been left behind recently with the success of the Live Sessions. Everyone loves an acoustic session! So we’re bringing it back, new and improved as they say!

Stay tuned for some brand new material. In the meantime here is an old fave from Enter The Lexicon

Creature – ‘Bored’ New promo video – VIDEO and PHOTO FEATURE

Creature – Bored

Lots of firsts with this one. My first video as director and editor. Matthews first video with Blank Slate (top notch job too!) Creature’s first release and first video! First time on Punktastic and the first storage trailer I’ve shot in!

Shot at U Hold the Key storage in Heaton (thank you to the lovely folk there for making it happen!) on a really hot sunny afternoon. 4 hours of takes and fun. We wanted something fast, snappy and edgy, with a trippy black and white vibe.

Coma Violet – ‘Dance Sinner Dance’ New promo video – VIDEO and PHOTO FEATURE

Coma Violet – Dance Sinner Dance

We were lucky enough to have Coma ask us to shoot a video for their debut single. Out now in all the usual places!

It was really good fun to shoot this. We had some super tight deadlines but the band grafted and we managed to shoot the whole thing (nearly 30 takes!) in under 5 hours.

Anyway I’ll stop rambling and let the video do the talking…
