Red lights are a gig photographers worst enemy, they make photos look awful plus more than often end up in loss of detail & an image which really cannot be saved....

With 2008 coming to a close, I give you a selection of some of my favourite shots taken by me during the year.

I look forward to 2009, who knows what lies around the corner for me.

Merry Christmas & Safe New Years to all!

Korn - they were the band that convinced me to convert from rap to metal, so I was eager to get the chance to shoot them before they decided to call it a day.

I arrived at about 6pm to find that my pass has not been organised properly, after several calls/messages to KMW & a print out of my confirmation email an hour passes & box office give me the photo pass, however Bloodsimple had already been and gone by this stage.

Unfortunately all the supports had awful lighting, Chimaira being the worst of them which was disappointing as I was looking forward to seeing them. Not to mention I also tore a chunk out of my shin while walking in to the pit area, kicked the corner of the steel security platform...awful sight.

Korn took the stage and all was forgotten, they definitely improved on their last performance here in Sydney (their show with Disturbed was beyond awful) and the small crowd that attended went nuts, Sunday night @ the Entertainment Centre & they could barely manage to bring in 5,000 kids.

The Big Top, Luna Park was packed with eager teens screaming to see their first glimpse of the HIM lead sing & Finnish heart throb - Ville Valo.

While my satisfaction levels were not really met, given the high energy shows I usually attend...the crowd seemed more than happy with the performance from the band while I was in attendance.

Here are a few shots from the night.

Keep an eye out for shots from Korn's show w/ the likes of Chimaira & Bloodsimple in April. 

Unfortunately I was denied entry to Celine Dion, Maroon 5 & I had to turn down Smashing Pumpkins + the Gucci Spring Release...however there is still plenty of time left in the year to get the content rolling
