Mutemath is incredibly photogenic, challenging and always flat out fun to shoot.
The first three songs in the pit were brutal. Blasting strobes, difficult color washes and lots of movement. Plus the pit was split in half by a moving track that frontman Paul Meany and drummer Darren King would later use to venture out into the crowd. So photographers were relegated to only one side of the pit. I chose stage left near King and bassist Roy Mitchell-Cardenas. Not gonna lie, I was pretty disappointed with my initial take. I felt like Mutemath kicked my butt.
I was lucky to find a clear spot on an elevated area at stage right. I got the majority of my best shots from there. It’s a valuable lesson to not get discouraged after a rough first three songs and continue shooting from the crowd if possible.
