|I always say I would like to do more challenges, but time is something I do not have a lot of, so here I say it again! But I do visit DPC on a daily basis.
I had the absolute pleasure to photograph a concert festival for the British magazine, Kerrang! I was approached by K! to shoot "Knotfest" in Pacific Junction, Iowa on august 17th 2012. Knotfest had a total of 8 heavy metal bands, with the headliner being Iowa native, Slipknot.
As far as photographing concerts/bands, there is not another band I would think that could be as much fun and photographically entertaining as Slipknot was. (With maybe the close exception of maybe Kiss...in their younger days). I was going to shoot the concert anyway (A friend of mine is a member of Slipknot), but with the addition of Kerrang!, it made it more worth while.
Corey Taylor, lead singer for Slipknot has an amazing vocal range, and does a great job of playing to his audience as well as the cameras.
I do not like to brag, and usually keep a low profile, but I wanted to post something here. I was pretty stoked at the opportunity Kerrang! gave me, and was very happy with my work. I took a totally of about 1200 shots that day, but typical concert photography, I was limited to 3 songs per band.
