  5. Hey Chris awesome set of photos.

    Totally dig the VersaEmerge shot and the Kicking Daisies portrait.

    Gonna check day two now :) Will you be doing a post on “Preparing For A Festival” I may be doing Download and Leeds festivals over here in the UK and would love any tips you have for the ones you have done.


  6. Download is June 11-13th. I’ve been shooting with a publication for the last couple of months where I got to do Rammstein and Machine Head (at that point I had only taken photos for 3 months) and these are obviously the biggest things I’ll be doing of the year. Leeds is 28-20th August.

    Prep is the thing I’m uncertain of. Especially as these festivals require camping for the 3 days. So trying to get the mindset of doing my workflow in real time amidst an event is a scary thing. Along with keeping everything charged including myself while running around all day.

    AC/DC and Aerosmith are headlining, I couldn’t tell you how exciting that is for me.

    Keep it up the good work yourself. I also watched the Photoshelter/Blog webinar I think I was the only one to leave a comment.

    .-= Read My Last Blog Post: James Milne Still in the process of getting my new website/blog up. Should be done by Sunday night :) =-.
