Ryan Bingham and crew played a phenomenal, high-energy set at Irving Plaza on the Fear and Saturday Night Tour. Lucky for this photographer, he also brought an awesome lighting treatment to match. Continue reading
As we ring in another new year, I thought it’d be fun to share some of my favorite images from 2015. From backstage portraits at Sonar in Iceland, to the first-ever Billboard Hot 100 Festival, and a couple assignments for Rolling Stone, it was a great year. Here are just a few of my favorite live music photos of 2015! Continue reading →
Beard whips, power stances and face-melting riffs are par for the course at a Skálmöld gig. This Icelandic viking metal band is always a straight up blast to shoot, and they pummeled Háskólabíó to celebrate the release of their new album, Með Vættum. Continue reading →
‘Tis the season for best of year-end lists! I shot a bunch of great festivals, did a couple portrait series and was lucky enough to cross a few bands of my bucket list too. Here’s a handful of some of my favorite concert and portrait images of 2014! Continue reading →
Guitar slinger superhero Slash has long been on my music photographer bucket list. His monster riffs are legendary. His look is so iconic…the top hat, curly fro, leather and his Gibson Les Paul. When I heard Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators were coming to town on the World On Fire Tour 2014 there was no way I was going to miss it. I was thrilled to finally have to chance to photograph this icon! Continue reading →
Rock ‘n’ Rollers Kaleo are on fire lately. They’ve been getting a ton of local radio air play, they played a packed prime time slot at Harpa Concert Hall this past Airwaves and they’ve recently been announced for the 2015 Eurosonic Noorderslag bill. In short, they’re poised to become Iceland’s next big thing. Don’t be surprised if Kaleo arrives on the international stage very soon. Continue reading →
I covered Reykjavík’s beloved annual music bash, Iceland Airwaves! Headliners The Flaming Lips, The Knife, Future Islands and The War on Drugs were all excellent. Plus awesome local bands like FM Belfast (pictured above) and Grísalappalísa totally blew me away. This was the fourth time that I’ve shot the festival, and although it’s always crazy, this was probably my busiest year yet.
It was my first time as a member of the official Airwaves photo team. It was a treat working with a bunch of other talented shooters and all the pros on Airwaves’ staff. I also shot a series of band portraits in the midst of my live coverage. And on top of that, I organized a music photography exhibition in conjunction with the festival called, “Look at the Light: Moments from Iceland Airwaves”. It’s a group exhibition that showcases some of the best concert imagery from Airwaves past. It was a ton of work to pull everything together, but it was really gratifying to make it happen. Without further ado, hit the jump to see some of my concert highlights! Continue reading →
