Running the Guard

From the archives: One of the best shows I got to shoot was a local band I saw while visiting Baltimore, in April of 2009. On an impromptu business trip, I decided to drag my better half with me for a weekend of fun in the port city. Our first night there, I googled around…

Dark Tranquility

The first band of the night had quite a bit of white light which made it easier to shoot. There was a TON of head-banging blonde hair which made for awesome rock shots. Still averaged a high ISO around 2000 and this would have been an amazing show to have a fisheye lens for. Soon,…

The Devil Wears Prada

I’d been looking forward to shooting The Devil Wears Prada ever since I’d seen shots like this on flickr, I knew that Mike Hranica would give some really crazy facial snarls that I wanted to capture.They were fun to shoot, and I accomplished my goal with this rockstar stance. The kids LOVED TDWP, and to…

Killswitch Engage – The Dome at Oakdale Theater

I’ve been to the Oakdale Theater 3 times in the past 3 years and this was my first experience with The Dome. For those of you not familiar, it’s basically the main atrium area that houses the concessions. It’s a fairly large area, though not nearly the size of the actual theater which is probably why…

New Found Glory — 2010

My third time in a year’s time seeing New Found Glory and I’ll keep going to see them as they do not disappoint. This tour was in support of their 10-year anniversary of their self-titled album release. The stage was adorned with large printouts of images from this  album, and the majority of their setlist…

Arch Enemy

First concert of 2010!Arch Enemy put on a great show. I trekked up to the Worcester Palladium to shoot for Musician Photo Journal,  with my friend Cross to review it. I redeemed myself in my skills of shooting female rockers as my Lacuna Coil set didn’t go as well as I’d hoped. I was more…

Top 5 concerts of 2009

2009 is the year that I got my first DSLR and when I started doing concert photography. I went to dozens of shows this year, some with better results than others. In order, here are the shows I had the most fun shooting: 5. Dashboard Confessional & New Found Glory – December 11th Nothing beats a GOOD…

New Found Glory

This band has a special place in my heart as the first band I got a photo pass for. I was stoked to see them play an acoustic set with Dashboard Confessional and they did not disappoint. They played songs like 47, Hit or Miss, the surprise Ben Folds Five cover Brick, ending with The…

Dashboard Confessional

This was the furthest I’ve trekked thus-far for a show. I dragged my parents out to NYC for the weekend so that I could finally see Dashboard Confessional. And this show was especially wonderful to me because it was an acoustic show. The first and only other time I’d seen Dashboard Confessional was when I…
