As a music photographer, one of the most rewarding and demanding assignments you can find yourself covering is the music festival. It’s a pretty demanding event but with little reprise or comforts for the discerning photog.
The bigger the festival the more opportunity there is to create some amazing photographs of prestigious and exhilarating performances – acts seem to pull out an extra 20 percent when on stage to the delight of an exuberant and excitable crowd. Such is the nature of music festivals. Maybe because nobody is driving.
2000 trees 2014 was another belter of a festival, though there were a surprising number of “calmer” or more ambient acts to be found filling the main stage, making The Cave and Axiom the places to visit if you like things more hardcore, or frantic, or loud, or 200 miles an hour or a bin to sit in…
Today I was drawn in by a post from US music photographer Tod Owyoung, who had tweeted a response from a twitter user to a rather suggestive and questionable statement from The Red Jump Suit Apparatus.
The band were making a bold move in stating they believe most digital art should be free.
