first job kinda maybe

As you can see, I photographed The Wagons a few weekends ago - the week after I received an email from the Wagons manager saying they loved my photos and would I be interested in doing some shots of Henry Wagons (lead singer). My first reaction was to give the job to my girlfriend Jess cos she is great at portraits, but she told me I had to do it!
anyway, I met Henry at the Fitzroy Gardens - he had some ideas for shots so off we went and took some shots for a couple of hours.

It was pretty fun, I had a flash with me but I am not very confident with it so I just used available light (what a wanky statement that is.. available light) I have sent the photos off to the manager and Henry and now am waiting for a response, which is scary! All in all it was pretty fun and probably something that I should get into - I really enjoy taking live shots and portrait shoots like this will hopefully be on offer more and more.

And Henry is a really nice guy.

wagon o' beards

It's been a while since I have been out shooting bands so I was kinda excited about photographing The Wagons tonight, I had also wanted to see them for a while. I got to the venue with enough time to take my usual potentially lethal cocktail of rock n' roll drugs: a V followed by a coffee which managed to wake me up nicely...

There had been some changes to tonight's lineup so I wasn't too sure what I was going to see.. first up was Super White Horses, a two piece from Melbourne who were cool - well worth checking out, I do find two pieces boring to photograph, and that's probably just me, however, soooo NO PHOTO FOR YOU!

Next up were The Beards from Adala.. Aderlay... SA
A bunch of very fine beards indeed, we got treated to a set of songs about... beards!
I felt very special indeed, it washed away years of abuse from car windows for having a beard.. I woke up this morning and the first thing my head said to me was "NO BEARD, NO GOOD! THERE'S NOT ENOUGH BEARDS IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD!" so another band to check out, I did think that they came across better live than on myspace Mp3.

And The Wagons, another fine act - caught them just as they were about to go into recording mode so they had been touring for a while, nice and polished set - awesome night all round..

Cum Face of the Gig
Had to come from The Beards...
Looks like a two for Tuesday.. except it's Monday - go figure!
