There is something magically weird when you are in a select group allowed to photograph a show. It happened back in February for Les Louanges in a sold out MTelus where we were one of two medias allowed to photograph. And it happened again last month with Inhaler at the Corona Theatre. The much hyped… Continue reading Inhaler | Corona Theatre | Montreal Concert 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
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
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
Welp, it is that time of the year again. My last scheduled show has been photographed and images have been posted. When I think that I just finished my 5th year as a full time working photographer, it has been a pretty crazy year. Taking the time to look back at the who and what… Continue reading 2017 Music photos in review
Songwriters, multi-instrumentalists, Grammy nominated, twin sister… Canadian indie singers Tegan and Sara were at Montreal’s Metropolis on October 29th, a few days before Halloween. I photographed them last time in 2013, again at the Metropolis (you can see that gallery HERE) and while their stage setup is more elaborate, their hair is a bit longer,… Continue reading Tegan and Sara | Metropolis | Montreal Music Photography
Osheaga, one of Canada’s premiere indie rock festivals, is celebrating their 10th anniversary in 2015. So you know the line up should be pretty interesting. I’ve been going to the festival for the last 5 years and it’s really fun to see how it has grown in terms of bands, stages and renown. Promoter Evenko… Continue reading The 2015 Osheaga line up … what we know so far | Montreal Photographer
Another year is coming to an end. My last few weeks of December are usually full of accounting, looking over yearly and multi year business plans, closing off some contracts and so on. In doing so, it’s a great time to look back at what has been done in the last 12 months, and it… Continue reading Best of the best show photos for 2014 | Montreal Concert Photographer
For the third time in 7 months, Vance Joy was on a Montreal stage. I first saw the Australian singer/songwriter and his folky songs when he opened for Young the Giant back in March 2014. He then played an early set at Osheaga in 2014 on the stage I was covering for the festival and… Continue reading The rise of Vance Joy | Metropolis | Montreal Concert Photographer
Covering a festival as a media photographer is a hell of a lot of work. You are bouncing from stage to stage, trying to keep up with what your journalists are covering. If you are lucky, your media got more than one photo pass. If you are not, you are flying solo. Covering one of… Continue reading The rush of Osheaga 2014 | Montreal Concert Photographer
One of Canada’s top music festivals hits Parc Jean-Drapeau for 3 days every August. I have been to the last 4 editions, usually covering for various medias. This year’s edition is a bit different as I’m hired on to cover 2 of the stages and provide the festival’s official images of all artists on these… Continue reading Osheaga 2014 | Music and Arts Festival
This year’s Osheaga was slightly different for me, photography wise. The festival is way bigger than it has ever been, and as the promoter likes to keep the photo pit not too cluttered, this means that bigger national and international medias got the pit passes that we little local guys used to get. What… Continue reading A Day at Osheaga | Parc Jean Drapeau | Montreal Show Photography
I was asked to shoot the Osheaga After Party at Theatre VM Corona late Friday night (after shooting the festival all day). Who needs sleep, right?
I’ll keep it short for the preview… two words… MASSIVE stage. Evenko, the major local promoter, unveiled their new festival stage today and holy crap… 7 feet high. Hard as hell to shoot from. I’ll go into details with the real post, but here ya go… a few images of The Black Keys tonight in… Continue reading The Black Keys | Laval | Montreal Show Photographer
Ah… The Tragically Hip… or… The Hip. Been listening to them since the late 80s, a true canadian classic. While I’ve had none of their music on my iPod for the last while, I still knew all the lyrics to all the songs. And so did the rest of the crowd!
The Barr Brothers were warming up the crowd last night before The National at the Lachine Canal. Here are a few images of their performance. To note: Check out Sarah’s earrings in the header image! Love ’em! She told me they are made from recycled flute keys. haha.
Some days you get to shoot high energy bands that are flying around the stage, other days you get to shoot mellow bands that move you more with their music than with their movement. This was the latter of the two. Tegan and Sara are both pretty static on the stage, standing behind their… Continue reading Show: Tegan and Sara | Metropolis | Montreal Music Photographer
