Neutralize The Threat
After last week’s killer gig by Frankenbok at the Corner Hotel, I was hopeful there would be decent lighting to work with again. Last week, the ‘Bok were superbly lit and it made my life so much easier.
Arriving at the Corner just as In Trenches were to hit the stage, I noticed the one solitary red light they we’re being lit with. Yep, was gonna be a long night in the trenches if this was a sign of things to come.

HEAVY Magazine’s 1st Anniversary
Marking the 1st year anniversary for Australia’s definitive Heavy Metal magazine HEAVY was always destined to be a superb night.
So it was with great pleasure that I accepted the invitation to attend tonight’s celebrations (camera in tow of course!)

My Name Is Frightful Among the Believers
After a brief respite from the live music photography over the past month or so, it was all systems go shooting New Orleans’ Black Metal finest in Goatwhore tonight at the Corner Hotel. By a long stretch, The Corner is not my favourite place to be shooting such an act as it becomes insurmountably impossible to do so without the safe confines of a barrier and/or photo pit.

Corner Hotel Nu Metal
Even though I had secured to shoot this gig several months ago, I very nearly didn’t go to the show tonight as I was bordering on exhaustion. With a long week at work coupled with some late nights shooting and editing photographs – had all but taken its toll on me.
Never let anyone tell you otherwise, this is hard work. Granted, it is fun and always an eye-opening experience… but when one works a normal job during the day and then does rock photography purely for love, by night – the day’s do tend to get long, tiring and fatigue inducing.

Death Dies Hard
Arriving at the Corner Hotel somewhat late – knowing full-well that the venue rarely has a designated photo-pit area isn’t the smartest thing to do. If I was to get any decent shots tonight I was gonna have to hustle through the crowd and pretty much hope for the best.
Catching the tail-end of Sydney act Ink, (they weren’t too bad at all) – I slapped on my photo-pass around the neck and proceeded with the ‘scuse-me-shuffle’ to the front of the stage.
