If there is any band that rocks too hard, it’s these guys. August Burns Red performed the first of two sold out shows at Nokia Theater in Times Square and I was there. I covered both shows on stage, back stage and from the pit and 1,000 frames later I still feel like I fell short of capturing it all.

Concert Photography Notes
After doing a set of band portraits for August Burns Red last summer and shooting their NYC date at Gramercy Theater, I was eager to work with the guys and their production team to produce another stellar set of images. With a high chance of shooting the entire set both nights, I spent the majority of night one in the pit in order to get a feeling for the band’s performance on this tour. This tactic paid off extremely well as you’ll see in the photos from night two (to follow).
I shot this set with the Nikon D3 and Nikon zoom lenses covering focal lengths from the 14mm to 200mm.
