Adventures in Live Photography

Currently the trend in live photography seems to be to avoid getting anywhere near the stage, almost as if they are scared to be close to the action. I find that approach useful for documenting fine-art and performance, but rock music is supposed to be loud! I like my photos to reflect this too ;) So do my clients. I've just finished editing the pictures from the Taake show and thought I'd share a couple of them.

Just to be safe, I had better make it clear that I don't endorse hogging one spot for a show, or getting in the way of the fans or blinding the band with camera flash. It's just not cool.
