Sigur Rós

This is one of those soppy lame posts most people will hopefully ignore, but it’s quite a lovely landmark occasion for me. I was immensely lucky to photograph one of the three bands on my “bands to photograph before dying” list. The wondrous, beautiful and exhilarating Sigur Rós. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do since the first ever gig that I saw them play at, the Great Escape Festival in 2006 where I nabbed a spot right at the front and waited patiently with my brand new Canon 350D. I didn’t know anything about aperture, shutter speed, focal length to be able to take good photos at a gig, I was just a lucky kid who had enough money to buy a nice camera. It’s now come full circle for me; It’s a humbling experience.

  1. The drummer one!! All of them are amazing but that one, and the fourth photo = top notch.

  2. Congrats mate! That 2nd photo with the light beams is pretty awesome. You should stick TOOL or NIN on your list–I think you could get some wicked pictures of the laser shows they put on.

  3. Yep excellent work there mate. The band are definitely worth driving for an hour and half. Some ‘lesser’ bands however would definitely test those waters though.

    Now all we need to do is convince the publications our live music photography is worth something decent and it would be the greatest job ever!
