It’s been a while since I shot a proper concert, so it felt good to get back to my photographic roots and capture some titanic legends of the genre in the process. Behold, the precision math-crush-meisters of Meshuggah and the roaring stoner metal of High On Fire.
Even better, I got to shoot in one of the most photographer-friendly venues I’ve ever encountered. Security was friendly, the pit was spacious, and there was a nifty indent on each side of the stage so I could shoot from the wings of the stage. And while I was restricted by the typical three-songs-and-out rule, security allowed me to stay in the shooting area to watch the rest of the show.
Along with Airbourne, Arcanium and Chiodos brought the noise in support of Bullet For My Valentine at The Pageant last Friday.
