The Genitorturers at the Summit Music Hall

This has probably got to be the most fun concert that I’ve covered to date. Violent, bloody, demented and, well, fun! The Summit Music Hall is, on average, dark, but when their stage lights are actually on well there’s a decent amount of light at ISO 6400. Not the greatest, but decent. I took a […]

The Dropkick Murphys & Against Me! at The Fillmore Auditorium

Getting movement and energy out of every band member on stage is a rarity, but a rarity that is enjoyed when you encounter them. The Dropkick Murphys provided non-stop action on stage which proved not only challenging but fun. Especially with the addition of an 8′ wide box in the middle of the pit that […]

The Dum Dum Girls

Yeah, another night of shooting in the deep dark recesses that is small concert venues. This one was well worth it, though. The Dum Dum Girl’s album “I will be” has been keeping me more than entertained since I was introduced to it late last year and seeing them in an intimate place like the […]

Night of the Bassists

Some nights certain things just pop out to me. Last Saturday night it was the bassists of Wovenhand and Git Some. My favorite pics of the night were of them.

D.R.I. at the Bluebird Theater

I never really listened to these guys until recently and am glad I had a chance to see them live before they pack it in (though, judging by this performance they’ve got a lot of time left in them). I was a bit worried that this would be a “reunion tour” quality performance but the […]

Freelance Whales at the Hi-Dive, Denver

I was pushing the ISO limits of the 7D again last Monday at when the Miniature Tigers and Freelance Whales played the Hi-Dive. The Mini Tigers got the worst of it but there’s not much you can do when the lead singer asks for lights to be shut off. If he doesn’t want light then […]

Brandi Carlile at Boettcher Concert Hall

I finally got to shoot the 7D at a concert at only ISO 3200! And was able to shoot at f/4 for a little depth of field. How sweet it is To say that Brandi Carlile came to the Boettcher Concert Hall on November 13, 2010 would be an understatement. She and her band made […]

The Heavy at The Bluebird Theater

This one was a challenge. I think that if I hadn’t had the extra ISO capabilities that my new 7D provided I wouldn’t have come back with much of anything from this shoot. Not only is the Bluebird dark but I think they actually lowered the lights for these guys. To add insult to injury […]

Back in the saddle with Season’s After

I got the chance to step back in to the role of Concert Photographer on Friday night and I’m pretty excited about it. The Denver Post’s Reverb Music Blog gave me a shot (and one more coming up soon) to see how I’d do. I think I did pretty well considering the place was a […]
