Last night…of Folkfest ’13

Canadian Legend GORDON LIGHTFOOT in 45 seconds.  One of the crazy parts to being a concert photographer is what amount of time we are allowed to shoot…ask me my Etta James story.  Some artist it is 2 songs maybe one song.  Generally it is 3 songs.  The amount of time we are allowed to shoot to who can shoot a show is dependent on so many things, the artist themselves, the management company, the booker, the venue, to the festival organizers.   Some acts there are just to many photographers in the ‘pit’ so they limited  the time,numbers etc…whatever it was last night I am glad I got my 45 seconds. A few for now of  Mr. Gordon Lightfoot, as you probably image  in  45 seconds the shots might have a bit of a similar look.

Do I shoot weddings?…Melanie & Rick’s

I get asked fairly often, “Do you shoot weddings?”  My answer is: yes, if it is the right one. I shoot a limited number a year.  A wedding is a long fun day with all kinds of variables and fun to it. I love shooting weddings – but for me  it has to be the right couple, the right family… but my main focus (no pun intended) is elsewhere in photography, so I’m booked pretty solid for summers and my schedule doesn’t permit a lot of time for weddings. But when the right couple comes along and my schedule works for it – by all means, let’s do it.

Folkfest – Day 2

Happy Friday!  Welcome to my new way of sharing my most recent work with ya’ll. (I hate doing this so you know, but it is the way of the world. Changes you know, copyright, Facebook etc, that is why we are here.)

First day shooting at FOLKFEST, it’s the first time I’ve shot Folkfest at the new location. I think the last show I shot at Folkfest was Arlo Guthrie at Britannia.
As amazing time hanging with The Claytones, amazing band & amazing people in the band. Followed the night up with some PACK A.D on the CUPE stage from Vancouver.
Colin Meloy was on next over on the Ravenlaw Stage. Then we had some Vampire Weekend.
