Khyati and Jordan came to me after their wedding to have some new and creative photographs of them taken. They decided on the U.S. National Arboretum, which turned out to be a perfect location and great weather that Sunday in October.
Just a few days ago I had an exciting opportunity to shoot a local Washington DC band, Modern Thieves. I teamed up with Amy Willard who is quite the band & concert photographer. We met up without a plan, collaborated on some ideas throughout the night and overall everything went great. Although we originally intended to shoot off the Pentagon City rooftop overlooking the Pentagon, we quickly got booted from the ‘high security’ location. Luckily Amy had the idea to shoot at the nearby Air Force Memorial.
This alternative location served us even better and considering how late in the evening it was we were able to pull off some pretty cool shots. I’m looking forward to working with additional bands in the future. Be sure to contact me if your group needs promotion material.
Here are just a few of my favorites:
Shooting a live concert is a sheer adrenaline rush, especially when it’s a huge star at a great venue. Capturing the essence and energy of a singer or band in only a few allotted minutes is quite an enjoyable challenge. So here a few of my favorite from the shoot.
Shot with the 5D Mark II, 85mm f/1.8, and 24-70 f/2.8L.
