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

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

IleSoniq 2017 recap | Montreal Concert Photographer

The yearly EDM festival IleSoniq has come and gone for 2017.  And it was another year of music, dancing and people going crazy at Parc Jean-Drapeau!  I’ve been lucky enough to have been a festival photographer since it’s beginnings, going from the smallest stages hidden in the woods, covering the main stage’s fireworks and huge… Continue reading IleSoniq 2017 recap | Montreal Concert Photographer

The Chainsmokers | Bell Centre | Montreal Event Photographer

How should we label a group like The Chainsmokers?  They are 2 DJ Producers.  They are EDM.  But they are also more accessible, pop-EDM?  Regardless how you want to classify them, seeing The Chainsmokers live is an intense experience.  I do not remember feeling so much bass throughout my body than when the show was… Continue reading The Chainsmokers | Bell Centre | Montreal Event Photographer

Best Concert Photos of 2016 | Montreal Concert Photographer

As the end of the year approaches, it is always a great time to look back at what you have accomplished in the past 12 months.  And while doing so, you can also take the time to backup those accomplishments 🙂 .  As much as it was a great year for both photography and business… Continue reading Best Concert Photos of 2016 | Montreal Concert Photographer

IleSoniq – views of the main stage | Montreal Concert Photographer

After so many years of photographing concerts, from small clubs to 40,000 arenas, I finally got the go by my client to cover the main stage of a major festival at IleSoniq this year.  It wasn’t expected (I have only been hired by Evenko to cover their main festivals for 3 years – this being… Continue reading IleSoniq – views of the main stage | Montreal Concert Photographer

Dancing all day, party all night at IleSoniq 2015

Ahhh IleSoniq.  In only it’s second year, the third of three summer festivals put on by local uber promoter Evenko happened last weekend.  After 3 days of Indie and Hip Hop music at Osheaga, some headbanging at Heavy Montreal, it was time to put away the guitars and take out the turntables for IleSoniq! I… Continue reading Dancing all day, party all night at IleSoniq 2015

Little Dragon | VM Corona Theatre | Montreal Concert Photographer

With the Grand Prix hitting Montreal in full force, those who were more electro musically inclined had a great band to check out at the Corona Theatre… Swedish electronic band Little Dragon were on stage and they put on quite a show!  The lights were very neon inspired, which makes a photographer cringe, but thankfully things… Continue reading Little Dragon | VM Corona Theatre | Montreal Concert Photographer

Nosaj Thing + Clark | Fairmount Theatre | Montreal Concert Photographer

  After a series of punk rock shows, some indie music and some death metal, it was a fun change of pace shooting Nosaj Thing, as well as Clark, at the Fairmount Theatre last night / this morning (yes, the show was a weeee bit late and even with the 2 song restriction, I got… Continue reading Nosaj Thing + Clark | Fairmount Theatre | Montreal Concert Photographer

6 things I learned shooting EDM | Montreal Concert Photographer

I have photographed DJs before.  While EDM/electro (whatever you want to call it) is not my scene, I always found it a challenge breaking out of my comfort zone and try to output the best images I can.  But they were always bigger name artists that were on stage and I had the typical 3… Continue reading 6 things I learned shooting EDM | Montreal Concert Photographer

La Roux | VM Corona Theatre | Montreal Concert Photographer

English synthpop act La Roux (well, most just Elly Jackson nowadays), probably best known for their song Bulletproof, were scheduled originally for the Metropolis but ended up playing in the Corona Theatre, a smaller venue in the city.  Always better to have a small venue full than a bigger venue half empty. I think one… Continue reading La Roux | VM Corona Theatre | Montreal Concert Photographer

The Knife | Metropolis | Montreal Music Photographer

Swedish electro duo The Knife were in town in a very very sold out Metropolis.  Shooting this show was a pretty tough job.  While the pit in the venue was big and empty (I think we were 5 photographers in total… well, 4… one spent a bunch of his time on his iphone taking video),… Continue reading The Knife | Metropolis | Montreal Music Photographer
