Live Music – The Devil Wears Prada @ Best Buy Theater

If there is one thing that is a pure fact: Mikey Hranica is an amazing vocalist to photograph.  Another fact: the lighting designer The Devil Wears Prada brings on the road with them, is a very talented dude, and uses light to make for some very interesting photography…


Live Music – Red Fang @ Bowery Ballroom

Kid, if you missed out on Red Fang when they were at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City recently, as part of one of the first dates of the Whales and Leeches tour, you were a fool, because they were fantastic…


Live Music – Cancer Bats @ Bowery Ballroom

Once again, it’s the motha fn’ Cancer Bats.  This time, opening as main support for Red Fang at Bowery Ballroom in New York City, these hardcore rockers are much more fun to shoot when they’re on a bigger stage…


Live Music – Protest The Hero @ Gramercy Theatre

One of my absolute favorite bands, Protest The Hero finally made a trek from their cozy Canadian homeland to bring the fun to New York City in tour of their latest awesome album, Volition…


Live Music – The Kindred @ Gramercy Theatre

Opening up for Protest the Hero, Canadian progressive metal band The Kindred (whose drummer is now also the official new drummer for Protest), came to New York City at Gramercy Theatre, and things got a little weird…


Live Music – Affiance @ Gramercy Theatre

Mine and your new favorite metal band, Affiance, graced the Gramercy Theatre recently while opening for Protest the Hero.  With a band this energized and full of life, they are a total blast to photograph…


Live Music – Northlane @ Gramercy Theatre

Even down one guitarist due to visa issues, Australia’s Northlane came to Gramercy Theatre in New York City, and totally annihilated it.  Of course, their intensity came at a cost to me being able to take photos…


Live Music – Structures @ Gramercy Theatre

Jumping and bouncing all over the place, Structures passed through New York recently, opening on the main support slot for Veil of Maya.  With plenty of energy an action, they were a fun band to shoot…


Live Music – Daughtry Acoustic Trio @ The Paramount

Between all of the metal and hardcore bands I shoot, sometimes its nice to shoot something relaxing, and super easy.  Chris Daughtry performing with his band as the Daughtry Acoustic Trio recently was the perfect chance to shoot something like that…


Live Music – Veil of Maya @ Gramercy Theatre

This was my third time shooting Veil of Maya this year, and easily, most challenging lighting situation by far…


Live Music – Slayer @ The Theater at Madison Square Garden

SLAYER!  SLAYER!   SLAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYERRRRRRRRRRRR.  I shot Slayer.  At Madison Square Garden.  And yeah, it felt amazing…


Live Music – Gojira @ The Theater at Madison Square Garden

Ever since I saw them back in February, I’ve wanted to shoot Gojira.  Their intense live show mystified me, and when I saw they were playing not only with Slayer, but at Madison Square Garden, I worked my ass off to make sure I could shoot them…


Live Music – Glassjaw @ The Paramount

Glassjaw may not tour much anymore, but when they book a show, they make sure its a memorable one. Playing near their Long Island homes at The Paramount in Huntington, NY recently, the highly influential post-hardcore band painted the stage green…
