Post Malone | Montreal Concert Photographer | Pierre B Photo

How do you classify an artist such as who has a stage name that was created with an online rap name generator? To say that Austin Richard Post (aka Post Malone) is a rapper isn’t enough. Posty kind of melds hip hop with country with rock and throws in a bunch of tracks while singing.… Continue reading Post Malone | Montreal Concert Photographer | Pierre B Photo

Best of 2019 concert photos

The last 12 months have been pretty intense for my concert photography. I’ve continued my 5 year working relationship with the amazing folks at Bell Media, covering shows during the year for iHeartradio, CHOM FM, Virgin Radio … and adding on board Rouge FM and Energie this past year. My summers are packed with the… Continue reading Best of 2019 concert photos

Gowan | Corona Theatre | Montreal Concert Photographer

A classic in the Canadian rock world for the last 40 years… Lawrence Gowan, known on stage as just Gowan, can still pack a venue, as was the case with the Corona Theatre. The venue had chairs all around, but by the end of the first set, the crowd was all standing. It was for… Continue reading Gowan | Corona Theatre | Montreal Concert Photographer

Jonas Brothers | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

After a little over 6 years of being officially split, the Jonas Brothers finally decided to tour together once again. The once Disney stars from the mid 2000s had some individual solo efforts over the years, but judging by the loud screams at Montreal’s Bell Centre, the fans were just a wee bit happy to… Continue reading Jonas Brothers | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

The Offspring + Sum 41 | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

Place Bell in Laval had an amazing double bill for punk rock fans last night. Legends The Offspring, along with Canadian punk rockers Sum 41, took to the stage in front of a packed arena. Presentement by local summer punk festival 77 Montreal, the evening started at an early 7pm with English punkers Dinosaur Pile-Up… Continue reading The Offspring + Sum 41 | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

Moist | Corona Theatre | Montreal Concert Photographer

It has been 25 years since Canadian rockers Moist released their multi platinum album Silver. I was 18 at the time, right smack in my first concert going phase of my life. I remember seeing them at Montreal’s Spectrum for the first time and their stage energy blew me away. I believe I have totalled… Continue reading Moist | Corona Theatre | Montreal Concert Photographer

The Chainsmokers | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

The pop EDM duo The Chainsmokers seem to come to the city at least once a year, and each and every time, the place is turned into a party. From headlining IleSoniq last year, a sold out show in 2017, The Chainsmokers were back at the Bell Centre for their World War Joy tour. The… Continue reading The Chainsmokers | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

J Balvin | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

The hugely popular Colombian reggaeton singer J Balvin made his way to Laval’s Place Bell and played in front of a packed house. While J Balvin had to step out of this year’s Osheaga lineup, he more than made up for it bringing his colourful stage (and fashion sense) to the city. Our restrictions were… Continue reading J Balvin | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

Image recap of Osheaga 2019 | Montreal Event Photographer

Returning to the newly renovated Espace 67 and Parc Jean Drapeau, Osheaga 2019 marked it’s 14th edition as one of Canada’s premiere musique and arts festival, and I also marked my 5th year as an official photographer, with 4 years prior to that as a media photographer. It is amazing seeing a festival grow…and grow…… Continue reading Image recap of Osheaga 2019 | Montreal Event Photographer

IleSoniq 2019 recap | Montreal Concert Photographer

Hard to believe that IleSoniq is only in it’s 6th year (and also my 6th year of being an official festival photographer). Montreal’s EDM festival has steadily grown each year, attracting bigger names and bigger crowds. 78,000 fans flocked to the newly revamped site. 78,000. That’s 39,000 a day (I r gooder at math). Compared… Continue reading IleSoniq 2019 recap | Montreal Concert Photographer

Backstreet Boys | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

One of the original boy bands (along with NKOTB), Backstreet Boys still put on an amazing show. Call it a nostalgia show if you want, the 5 boys – we should call them men as their ages range from 39 to 47 – typically play Montreal two nights in a row. Sadly, many fans were… Continue reading Backstreet Boys | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

Billie Eilish | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

I think the word phenom can be used when talking about Billie Eilish and her rise to stardom. I first caught Billie Eilish last year headlining the small stage at Osheaga. Wearing a cast (she broke her foot the night before at Lollapalooza), she still had so much energy and attitude on stage even though… Continue reading Billie Eilish | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

Dead Obies | MTelus | Montreal Event Photographer

So in the last little while, Quebec rap artists have been emerging in popularity. Back when I was one of the official photographers for the Club Soda, I used to cover quite a bit. And while I have kept track of some of the artists, I had no idea how big it has become. Rap… Continue reading Dead Obies | MTelus | Montreal Event Photographer

Why Don’t We | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

It seems that every generation has it’s boy band that packs in the concert venue, makes the teenage girls scream, and dance around all choreographed. From The Jackson 5, NKOTB, Backstreet Boys and more recently, One Direction. We haven’t had a new boy band take the stage in years, it was fun to see that… Continue reading Why Don’t We | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

Mumford & Sons | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

I had not been more excited to photograph a show like I was for Mumford last night. You would think after 10 years and nearly 1500 bands that the flame would dim… well, it doesn’t. The story I remember when I discovered Mumford & Sons back in 2012. I was going through a rough patch… Continue reading Mumford & Sons | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

Disturbed | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

Disturbed hadn’t had their own arena gig in almost 10 years in the city. The last couple of times we had them on a stage was during Heavy Montreal in 2016 and in 2011. Front man David Draiman had taken some time off to push his industrial band Device (which was also at Heavy Montreal… Continue reading Disturbed | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

Walk Off The Earth | MTelus | Montreal Event Photographer

Canadian pop band Walk Off The Earth brought their high energy live show to a sold out MTelus last night, to the delight of a crowd that ranged from 3 years old all the way up to over 60. It has been only a couple of months since the passing of Mike “Beard Guy” Taylor,… Continue reading Walk Off The Earth | MTelus | Montreal Event Photographer

Panic! at the Disco | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

Panic! at the Disco | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer Las Vegas rockers Panic! at the Disco brought their Pray for the Wicked tour to Laval’s Place Bell on a cold Saturday night. A packed crowd was treated to some amazing visuals, complete with confetti launch at the first song. Panic! has a stage… Continue reading Panic! at the Disco | Place Bell | Montreal Concert Photographer

Social Distortion | MTelus | Montreal Concert Photographer

Punk rock legends Social Distortion took the stage at Montreal’s MTelus last night. There is something somewhat magical about seeing front man Mike Ness take the stage and play some classic punk tunes from the past 40 years. A staple of any fan of punk music, fans got a plenty of hits with songs like… Continue reading Social Distortion | MTelus | Montreal Concert Photographer

Elton John | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

Sir Elton Hercules John. Is there anyone who doesn’t know that name? A staple of the rock world since 1962. The 71 year old has recently embarked on a multi-year final tour, Farewell Yellow Brick Road. 300 shows to mark the end of such an amazing career, with so many inspirational songs. The Rocket Man… Continue reading Elton John | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer
