Sailing to the edge of the world and watching the stars fall down, Crown the Empire have been playing to huge crowds all summer long at this year’s Warped Tour.  I took the time to shoot them at the Camden, New Jersey stop…

Notes:

I’ve shot Crown the Empire twice before, and with so many members, I feel like they’re rather difficult to shoot.  The last time I shot them was in Albany when they were opening for Asking Alexandria, and between them being tight on a small stage and the lighting being terrible, it was tough, and I ended up with nothing I thought was usable.  With plenty of light and the large Warped Tour Monster Energy stage for them to move around, it was much easier.  It was still kind of difficult to shoot drummer Brent Taddie, as the rest of the band was constantly blocking my shots from the pit.

Honestly, I would not be surprised if they are invited back again next year or the year after, and take on the main stage.  They are a band that is exploding quickly, and its sure to happen.

Equipment:

Nikon D3 w/ 24-70 2.8
