Die Toten Hosen

While “Die Toten Hosen” might not be a band our non German speaking friends might know they are a cult band. Created in 1982 they call themselves a live band, and I have to admit that until yesterday I wasn’t so sure. Rest assured any doubt I had got pulverised last night. In all the years I am photographing concerts I’ve never experienced a crowd so “in tune” with the band on stage. Impressive experience !!! On a technical note: The light was quite subtle and simple for this one. To be honest with the show Campino and his guys performed on stage there is no real need for a complex light show. When I...

I was pleasantly surprised by Bob Mould. It’s good old no bullshit Rock & Roll that I have to say I enjoyed a lot. Lead singer, bass and drumms, …. that’s all that it took to give the crowd quality entertainment last night. We should get to see more gigs like that. On...

Well I have to say, Notwist is not really my thing. I found the stage and the performance a bit “messy”. But hey, one cannot love everything. The fans sure seemed to enjoy the performance a lot. On a technical note: The light was ok on this one, the stage however was cramped...

I had the guys from S.K.O.R. in the studio for a Promo shoot and some more stuff which I can’t wait to show you. I promised them I would shoot them live once I get the opportunity to do so. What a better moment than at the RUK 2013 in Luxembourg city. The disappointing part of this...

Lindsey Stirling live @ The Rockhal Jun13

Lindsey Stirling live @ The Rockhal

The stage might be 30 or 40 meters across. Now try to photography a bundle of energy racing back and forth, up and down over this 30 or 40 meters. That’s how it felt to photograph Lindsey Stirling…. That being said I found her performance quite amazing. I cannot fathom how she manages to move around like that and still play the way she does. I’m trying to find the correct words to describe her “being” and all I can come up with is gentle, bright soul. Might sound cliché, but that’s really how I perceived her. From a musical perspective there’re are going to be lovers and haters out there, leaving...

Toto live @ The Rockhal Jun01

Toto live @ The Rockhal

What I like about bands that have been around for a while is that they really seem to enjoy what they are doing. On stage you could see the whole band smile nearly all the time. It’s a pleasure to photograph such events, since you can’t do anything but absorb those positive vibes. Toto’s show was nice and the sold out Rockhal thanked them for it with huge cheers. On a technical note: The light for this show was really good. You notice that the guys have been around and enjoy bright clear lights. I was able to keep my ISO way down for the whole three songs. I used the 28-75mm F2.8 and the 70-200 F2.8 for this gig. The...
