2012 has been a quiet year for me, there has not been too many shows on the agenda however I still have a few favourites from throughout the year & thought I might aswell jump on the 'shots of 2012' bandwagon.

I still have a few to edit from Parkway Drive, I Killed The Prom Queen & Northlane the other night however I'll make a separate entry for those.

Look forward to seeing what 2013 may bring.

I'll start off with the two pop shows of the year which I covered for Frontier Touring, both shoots required from the mixing desk.

It would be the third time I shoot the boys from Florida & I was expecting a fun night, after getting a slight warm-up with The Living End not long beforehand I was hoping to nail a few great shots.

I organised the pass with the bands manager weeks before the show & confirmed with him two nights before, course my name still was not on the guestlist, it was lucky that I took a print out of my emails with management otherwise it would have been a very early night...this however was not the only problems I'd run in to on the night.

After scoping out the openers, Heaven Shall Burn make a great impression, unfortunatly it was red wash fever in terms of lighting for their set, however their tunes/performance were awesome! Definitely grab a few of their songs if you can!

The lighting dims and the crowd goes nuts for Trivium, so much so that the crowd dislodge the front barrier within the first song & all media are escorted out of the pit straight away, which tops off my night...the lighting did not kick in for them until song 2-3, so it was lucky that the upstairs area was empty & we were given access to shoot from there, otherwise I would have come home with nothing.

Unfortunately no agencies were allowed for The Pussycat Dolls/Lady Gaga, so I'm not sure when my next show will be, until then take a look at some of the shots from Trivium below.

I've been out of the game for a while now, first shoot in a few months & you will see that in the images I ended up getting, I was pretty damn rusty.

I shot Trivium @ UNSW Roundhouse again on Thursday (for the third time now) & I'll post a new entry with the photos later in the week.

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!

The boys from Florida flew in to Australia for press & thought to put on a one date show in Sydney considering they flew 13+ hours to be here.

Once again they put on a tight set, which has come to be one of their strengths....

Daysend were their supports for the night - this was the first time I had seen them live & I must say they put on a great show...catchy tunes mixed with a great stage presence, I'll definitely have to catch them again in the near future

Come 9:30 Trivium took to the stage to the delight of the near capacity crowd in Enmore Theatre, mixing things up with old & new material from their upcoming album 'Shogun' which is due for release in late September this year.

Towards the end of their set, the sense of humour broke through from the band - playing various covers from bands such as Blink 182, Nirvana, AC/DC & even Tim Fogerty's Midnight Train To Nowhere before ending their set with Anthem & Pull Harder On The Strings Of Your Martyr.

Apparently they are due back for their Shogun tour mid 2009, so I'll be keen to shoot them again.
