Rockstar Uproar Festival

Comments Off on Rockstar Uproar Festival

Awesome night shooting Seether, Three Days Grace and Avenged Sevenfold at the Molson Ampitheater for the Rockstar Uproar Festival. It has been a while since I shot a concert and afterwards I realized just how much I missed doing so. I get such a buzz from the energy of the crowd and the drive of the music. There was a full day of bands but with other commitments at the Festival, I only had a chance to shoot the last three and in my opinion the best three of the day.  As usual we photographers were only allowed to shoot the first three songs and were not allowed flash. All images were shot with my D700 at ISO 2000 with a Nikon 24-70 2.8.  These are my favourite five from the night.

All images can be viewed here.

Thanks to Emily and Tom.

Miss Uproar

Comments Off on Miss Uproar

Sullen Art Collective’s Miss Uproar is part of the Rockstar Uproar Festival across North America. The finalists of the model search competition will be flown to Los Angeles to compete for the grand prize which includes ad campaigns for Sullen Art Collective, Rockstar Energy Drink and Jägermeister Canada. The winner will also receive Sullen clothing and a year’s supply of Rockstar Energy Drinks. Today I had to follow the 8 contestants from Toronto around the festival for promo shots in addition to documenting the winner presentation on the Molson Amphitheater main stage. In between that a few of us photographers had a chance to shoot the contestants one on one. I found this bicycle parked behind a rundown popcorn stand and picked Model 5 for a cool looking alternative shot. The sun was peeking behind her and I only had an SB800 with which to light her so I couldn’t make the background as dark as I wanted. I still like how it turned out though.

My images for this day can be viewed here.

Thanks to Emily and Tom from Miss Uproar/Rockstar Uproar Festival.
