Notes:

Many thanks to vocalist and front man Drew York who I caught up with before their set, and was able to talk to the security at The Paramount to allow me to get on stage during their set.  I shot from the photo pit for the first two songs of the set, and then jumped up behind them for some unique, and pretty awesome, shots.  In fact, things got so wild, security actually kicked the photogs out of the pit after those two songs.

Thankfully the lighting for Stray From the Path’s set was much, much better than it was when I shot them back in March at the Gramercy Theatre.  Likely, this is because who ever was in charge of lighting is also a good friend/fan of the band.

With a new album on the way, I’m likely to shoot Stray From the Path at least one more time this year, if not more.  So look forward to more of them!

Equipment:

Nikon D3 w/ 24-70 2.8

Nikon D600 w/ 80-200 2.8
