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.

Sorry for the downtime, my flickr subscription lapsed a few months ago & I only just got it renewed, so now all the images are back & the old posts now have their image slides.

It's been awhile since I covered a show, 3 months going by the old Soundwave post...since then I have been on a 3 week holiday from work & Sydney. A nice 2 weeks was spent in QLD & the remaining time lounging around home.

My first show in a long time was The Living End supported by Gyroscope on Friday night at the Sydney Entertainment Centre - pretty rusty in all aspects, I'll put some shots up during the week

In the meantime check out a few sites which pass my time:

@danielbedford - yep, I've signed up to twitter

Todd Owyoung - US Music Photographer

Kane Gledhill - Great landscape photographer from QLD

OCAU Forums - Australian Photographer Forums

Here's a few shots taken while on my QLD Holiday, check out the other snapshots on my facebook.
