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

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 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

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

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

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

Vance Joy | Bell Centre | Montreal Event Photographer

Talk about a career on the rise… Australian singer / songwriter Vance Joy brought his Nation of Two tour to the Bell Centre stage last night, and even if this was my 5th time photographing Vance in the last 4-5 years, and he has now moved from smaller venues to arenas, the guy still keeps… Continue reading Vance Joy | Bell Centre | Montreal Event Photographer

MAX | Corona Theatre | Montreal Concert Photographer

Singer, songwriter, entertainer, model… is there something MAX (real name of Max Schneider) doesn’t do? I’ll be honest, I had no idea who MAX was when I was asked to cover his show at Montreal’s Corona Theatre.  He was not the headliner of the night, so I knew that he is someone up and coming who… Continue reading MAX | Corona Theatre | Montreal Concert Photographer

Camila Cabello | MTelus | Montreal Concert Photographer

It seems that the X-Factor (and similar shows) are great at putting groups together.  One Direction was born back in 2010, and another popular group Fifth Harmony was brought together in 2012.  There are always artists from pop groups who like to go solo, and such started the career of Camila Cabello who, with her… Continue reading Camila Cabello | MTelus | Montreal Concert Photographer

Demi Lovato | Centre Bell | Montreal Event Photographer

Reigning pop queen Demi Lovato took the stage at Montreal’s Bell Centre on March 17 2018. Almost 10 years since her first number 1 album, I find it great that Demi is sending out a message during her tour about supporting mental health, herself being diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2010. I walked in to… Continue reading Demi Lovato | Centre Bell | Montreal Event Photographer

Arcade Fire | Centre Bell | Montreal Event Photographer

Just shy of 15,000 fans were present and excited to see hometowners Arcade Fire on their second stop of their Everything Now tour.  An original stage setup, where there is a boxing ring in the middle of the arena, gave fans from all sides loads to see.  Somewhat impressive visuals added to the moment.  Fans… Continue reading Arcade Fire | Centre Bell | Montreal Event Photographer

Bastille | Bell Centre | Montreal Event Photographer

Closing off a pretty busy month for concerts in Montreal (for me at least, still a bunch going on), British indie pop group Bastille played in front of a very happy crowd at the Bell Centre.  The city is warming up pretty well to the group’s funky tunes, as they seem to regularly come to… Continue reading Bastille | 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

Alessia Cara | Metropolis | Montreal Concert Photographer

It is rare I cover an artist twice in a year in a venue (as opposed to in a festival).  But this is the case with Alessia Cara, who I covered in January at the Corona (images from that show HERE).  She was back, but this time, in front of almost double the fans at… Continue reading Alessia Cara | Metropolis | Montreal Concert Photographer

Tegan and Sara | Metropolis | Montreal Music Photography

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

Blink-182 | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

If you listened to pop-punk and rock in the 1990s and early 2000s, you have to know the name Blink-182.  With massive hits like Feeling This, What’s My Age Again (the actual two first songs of their set at Montreal’s Bell Centre), All The Small Things and so many more, to say they are one… Continue reading Blink-182 | Bell Centre | Montreal Concert Photographer

Future Now: Demi Lovato & Nick Jonas | Montreal Concert Photographer

On yet another ultra hot summer day in Montreal, Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas brought their Futur Now tour to the Bell Centre.  As with most pop acts, photography restrictions had us back at the soundboard in the pretty full venue.  Photographers typically prefer being in front of the stage, in the pit, as this… Continue reading Future Now: Demi Lovato & Nick Jonas | Montreal Concert Photographer

Ellie Goulding | Bell Centre | Montreal Event Photographer

British singer / songwriter Ellie Goulding brought her current tour in support of her album Delirium to Montreal’s Bell Centre in front of sound pretty loud fans! She definitely has a much bigger stage presence than she did last time she was in town headlining a show – lights, dancers, rear projections… and she uses the stage… Continue reading Ellie Goulding | Bell Centre | Montreal Event Photographer
