It has been an incredibly busy couple of weeks with loads of shows to shoot. Each one was different and great in it's own way so let's recap a few.
Hed PE was the first up and I just have to say wow. Not only was I amazingly lucky to be given full access to shoot, which allowed for some very unique shots, but they are always a blast live. A strange mix of rock and gangsta rap and reggae all rolled into one bundle. It was a great night and there were some amazing bands that opened for them.
From there I went to two tribute bands, tribute bands you say? Yes, Mechanical Manson and Zombiewood. I had seen a few different tribute bands lately and I wasn't impressed they weren't trying to become the band in any way. It was completely different for these two. Zombiewood looked the part and sounded great they even had the robot etc. Mechanical Manson transported me right back to Marilyn Manson in the Antichrist superstar days. I wished I was able to shoot more than the three songs for both these bands. All I can say is WOW. These guys really have it down.
Last night was The Raskins opening for Ted Nugent, sure I got to photograph Ted too, but The Raskins really impressed me. We did an interview prior to the show and the brothers were so nice and the interview went well. I look forward to reading it when it comes out. Their live performance was energy filled and their New York sound was on full display. A mix of originals and classic punk covers and I was hooked.
There have been a few other concerts that I have worked in between and I also managed to jam in some travel and nature photography as well. Stay tuned for a post about that but right now, enjoy some of the photos from these shows. Remember more photos are on my social media pages and my Snapchat is the behind the scenes.
