Had never really got into Sum 41 before today, although watching a man wear a dress on stage got my attention! 01. 02. 03. 04. 05. 06. 07. 08. 09.
Flat, direct sunlight made for dull photo opps of Slayer on the mains stage. Was good to see fill-in Jon Dette sitting comfy on kit tho. 01. 02. 03. 04. 05. 06.
It looked damn hot up on stage for Stone Sour! Harsh lighting conditions (playing directly into the sun) meant harsh shadows all round for this set. 01. 02. 03. 04. 05. 06. 07.
Enigma is difficult to shoot at the best of times – a sold out show makes things even harder! The Smith Street Band sold this show out pretty quickly so I knew it would be tough to get a decent shot – the floor would be packed with pissed dudes goin off! The only option [...]
A one-off reunion show for The Superjesus in hometown Adelaide was sure to quickly sell-out! Those lucky enough to be in the packed Gov witnessed a great show from a band that shouldn’t have broke up in the first place. 01. 02. 03. 04. 05. 06. 07. 08. 09. 10.
Sleigh Bells were really difficult to shoot, but damn they were impressive to watch! So loud, fast and so dark on stage I wasn’t even certain what I was shooting. 01. 02. 03. 04.
Only a small, but loyal amount of punters had gathered to catch Steering By Stars set at this years BDO. Shame too, as they were a definite highlight of the festival for me. Can’t wait to see these guys get a later billing with a potential lighting show to match the ambience and feeling of [...]
Sigur Rós were LOUD!!! Along with everyone else, I was expecting to be transported into a higher state of musical awareness, but damn I never thought they were THAT loud live? Incredible show, but was restricted to only shoot from one side of the pit, so these photos are quite samey-same. 01. 02. 03. 04. [...]
I’ll be honest, I only wanted to shoot Santigold after I saw this clip on the youtube machine. Thing is, despite no party of that scale getting started at Fowlers, her show was really quite good! 01. 02. 03. 04. 05. 06. 07. 08.
Been a long time between Something For Kate shows! It was great to see them in fine form, playing new tracks plus all the favourites. 01. 02. 03. 04. 05. 06. 07. 08. 09.
I shot Slash earlier in the year in Belgium at Graspop Festival, (those pics here) so it was cool to catch the exact same show on Aussie soil. Knowing the visual cues and set list helped me pick the best positions to be in at certain times in the songs. 01. 02. 03. 04. 05. [...]
It’s not easy to photograph The Shaolin Afronauts, however a stage the size of Higher Ground (where Rootz Fest was held) certainly makes it a little easier! 01. 02. 03. 04. 05.
Fronting the Australian String Quartet, Slava Grigoryan returned to the stage for this moving performance. 01. 02. 03. 04.
A beautiful peformance from Simon Powis held the audience totally captivated. Perfect, consistent stage lighting made this one a breeze to shoot. 01. 02. 03. 04.
Without lighting, Rocket is a lousy venue to photograph at. The Shiny Brights are mates, and have no problem with me using flash where needed. Thanks guys, these shots would have sucked otherwise! 01. 02. 03. 04. 05. 06. 07.
Despite all the controversy with the only remaining member of the original Sublime still hoping to hold onto his band name and the ensuing fight it caused, it didn’t really look like he was all that thrilled to be performing in any incarnation of his former glory. Sublime With Rome were dull, flat and lethargic. [...]
In the haze of all that happens within Adelaide during “Mad March”, somehow I had never heard of the temporary venue Barrio. It shouldn’t be surprising then, that I’d also been blind to the advertising for St. Vincent and her show scheduled to appear there. What a cool venue, and what an amazing show! I [...]
Swedish House Mafia had the only photo release of the festival. Photographers were made to sign it as they entered the pit. For whatever the reason, I wasn’t asked to sign, so I didn’t. Later, I was told the release was the standard 3 songs, no flash. In reality, 3 songs turned out to be [...]
I’ve read all the reviews, seen a bunch of clips on the youtube machine and listened to everything I can, but I just don’t get the hype around this guy. To me, these (rather lame) photographs showcase exactly what this Skrillex set was all about – one dude on stage spinning party tunes, some fire, [...]
I didn’t get a single shot of System Of A Down that I liked. I was never really a fan of the band, but that shouldn’t have hindered me shooting them, so I’m not sure what happened here, but these shots do nothing for me. 01. 02. 03. 04.
Somewhat more of a novelty act to coincide with their music is how this Slipknot show came across to me. If you like your rock opera’s with incredible stage costumes and choreographed highlights you would love a Slipknot show. 01. 02. 03. 04. 05. 06. 07. 08. 09.
