Joeseth Carter had been photographing events at Brighton Pride between Friday 3rd and Sunday 5th August when his precious camera kit was stolen from him while he took a break. 

The photographer and videographer famously toured and took the official photos of major Brighton-based international rock band Royal Blood during their massive 2017 arena tour. 

In the week following Pride, the camera was taken into Brighton Cash Converters store, where the general assistant Duncan Locke carried out a series of the store"s standard strict security checks and discovered that the item had been reported as stolen. 

Cash Converters immediately informed Brighton and Hove police and following investigations Joeseth was finally reunited with his treasured camera last week. 

Joeseth said: "I am truly grateful to the Cash Converters team and for the time and steps they took to help recover these items that hold a lot of value to me. I cannot thank them enough. They have restored my faith in humanity."

In addition to capturing live and backstage photos for Royal Blood's 2017 tour, Joeseth also shot the scene that graces the cover of the band's 2017 album How Did We Get So Dark? 

His other clients include indie band High Tyde, French house DJ Cedric Gervais and massive corporate brands like Warner Bros. 

Brighton Cash Converters' store manager, Matthew Seekings added: 

"We were so pleased that we were able to play a part in reuniting Joeseth with the equipment he relies on for his livelihood. 

"Security is so important to us at Cash Converters. We perform stringent checks on the items that come in, day in and day out. It makes it all the more worth it when something like this happens." 

Sussex Police confirmed that they were able to return the kit and that investigations are ongoing regarding the theft.

Beartooth began as an emotional exorcism. Conceived, constructed, and unleashed by one man in a basement studio. 

This year has been something of a benchmark for the Essex-based artist, with the release of new album Young Adult, a true testament to Sam Duckworth's re-invigorated return as Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. 

Look Now is the first album Elvis Costello has made with The Imposters since the 2008 release of Momofuku, and his first new album since the acclaimed 2013 Roots collaboration, Wise Up Ghost.

Sat in the TV room at The Courtlands Hotel, in Hove, on the evening of 1st December 1973, with just one other guest. That was a twelve year-old me (ed) and a sockless and scowling Brian Clough.
