Iceland Airwaves Portraits 2014

In addition to my Airwaves 2014 live coverage, I shot a short series of band portraits! It started with a simple the idea to photograph one band a day whenever I had time. One pink background, five days and 16 bands later, here are some of my favorites!

Iceland Airwaves Music Festival 2014 Live Photos

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 […]

Portrait: Skálmöld

I shot a portrait with Skálmöld before their gig at Borgarleikhúsið! Hit the jump for some details behind the image.

Skálmöld, ‘Baldur’ @ Borgarleikhusið

Heavy metal rockers Skálmöld ripped through their album, Baldur, in its’ entirety at Borgarleikhusið.
