Looking for something?
Billy Idol was one of those bucket list concerts to shoot for me. I missed him 2 – 3 times since I started pointing my camera at musicians, and I was thrilled to have been able to finally shoot him this time.
What an incredible opportunity this was! To listen to this man speak is incredibly inspiring. He’s literally travelled around the world around 2,300 times during his stint on the ISS.
I’ve been a huge fan of Steven’s since the 90s when my parents got the family deep into The Barenaked Ladies after their release of Gordon in 1992. In the last few years, I have been lucky enough to photograph BNL twice. Even though they put on an incredible show, I always missed what Steven brought to the table.
I remember seeing the Tea Party back at EdgeFest in Vancouver in 1998 or 1999 before I really decided that I wanted to shoot concerts, but what I do remember, is that I was at the front of the stage against the barrier for their entire set, and I was really excited to be standing on the other side of the barrier twenty years later.
Jared James Nichols, Dead Girls Academy, and John5. This was a very guitar-driven night at the Rickshaw
What can I say other than “Wow, what a show.”
Steel Panther is one of those bands that every photographer has to experience at least once, if not more. Their stage presence is a solid 10, their amps go up to 11, while their hair goes to 12.
Legendary bluesman Buddy Guy recently played Vancouver’s Orpheum Theatre to a sold-out crowd. At 82 years old, Buddy played with the energy and vigour of someone a quarter his age.
For those who don’t recognize this man from American Idol or Postmodern Jukebox, do yourself a favour, and go search those things on youtube.
I’ll wait right here.
