Young Guns Tour Flyer

My friends in Young Guns have their biggest tour coming up next month and it’s going to be incredible. They just sent me the artwork for their tour poster / flyer featuring the new logo and one of the photos I shot with Gustav when they played at Brixton Academy last time round.

I can’t wait for this. Make sure to get on down. They are explosive live.

Give It A Name 2009 Day 2

Last night was the last day of Give It A Name 2009 and it was the best night of the two. I photographed Thursday, Underoath and Taking Back Sunday and all in all it was a super night. I have to say again that the lighting really was weird and by weird I mean (not good). Not only as a photographer but as a fan, I didn’t understand how all the lighting was focused between the front guys and the drummer and that there were no front lights so every one was a silhouette. Never before have I seen a setup like this, not even at a super small club where they only have 5 lights at their disposal. Anyway, I appreciated the fact that I was working with a D3 so that I could atleast boost the ISO up a little more than I ever have.

These are a few of the shots that I took during the day. If you want to see more, have a look at my Band Blog by CLICKING HERE.

Have a super day and week. Marcus

Give It A Name 2009 Day 1

Last night I photographed The Blackout (black and white photos) and Enter Shikari (colour photographs) live at Give It A Name which was at the Brixton Academy. It was the first night of two and a super night out. I am most excited about sunday though but these are a few of the photographs I shot already.

The lighting was quite hard to work with because the stage is mostly back-lit and I don’t really enjoy shooting in that condition but I made do with what was available and feel there are some good shots.
