Azimyth Show

This gallery contains 16 photos.

I am so sorry that I did not post yesterday but the show ended up going until about 2 am and then I was awake until about 6:30. So I basically took yesterday to sleep and edit and sleep and edit. I have finally finished the majority of the photos from the show! Man was […]

First Concert Photography

Today is an exciting day! First of all I get to do a very cool chocolate promotion at work! Godiva chocolate, yum yum. It is going to be a long shift but hopefully a good and busy one. At time standing by yourself for 6 hours promoting is not my favorite thing in the world. It is a long time to be working alone, especially if it is slow but when it is busy, it is the best way to work!

The real exciting part comes after work. I get to shoot my very first show! My good friends’ band Azimyth is headlining a show in Vancouver at the Red Room (If you are reading this and from Vancouver, come and check them out! They are a very talented up and coming rock group.) To them, it may not seem like it is a big deal but for me this is very exciting. I’ve never even tried shooting in an indoor concert setting. It is going to be a challenge and a treat! I really do love hearing them play as well, I really believe in these guys. I am nervous though, I didn’t want t publicize that I am doing this due to the fear that I may mess up and be terrible at it. If I manage to kill it, like I usually do, then this could be a HUGE deal of exposure for me. And I mean, who can deny good exposure. I wish I had a great picture to put in this post because I know that makes it more readable but I do not yet, unfortunately. I am fairly confident about tonight though, I think that the fact that I know the band will help me out some. Hopefully I will have a preview by tomorrow or monday!

Anyone have any advice? I’ve already got my f/1.8 lens and my camera at 1600 iso. So I am fairly confident and since it is a local show hopefully the lighting won’t be changing too much and I will be able to figure out the exposure earlier on in the night.

Wish me luck.

Structural Integrity

A few months back I got in contact with a model I’ve worked with in the past, Madelein Erasmus. She called me up saying that she found this fantastic location and that we just had to shoot there. Not ever seeing the location before we got there just hearing her rave about it, I was […]

The Hat

Erin Meehan is my roommate and a good friend of mine. She is obsessed with fashion and loves finding things that not everyone can wear. One day she comes home with a large floppy black hat and was oh so pleased with it! We decided that a photo session must be done surrounding this hat. […]
