I shot LiveVibe Hong Kong’s first show in 2010 and am pleased to be shooting them again for the return to Hong Kong. First show was last night, second show this afternoon. Last night I offloaded all the photos from memory cards to my hard disk and took a quick look. Here’s some shots of the Philippines Allstars. More shots to come in a few days.
I know – it’s been a long time since I’ve posted. I’ve been busy between my house move and job search and haven’t been shooting much lately. I should have mentioned Open Show Hong Kong #2 before it happened but I just didn’t get to it. My apologies.
Open Show Hong Kong #2, held at PASM Workshop, featured 5 outstanding photographers, exhibiting and discussing their work and taking questions from the audience:
Khai van Kampen:
Open Show Hong Kong #3 will take place in mid April. If you’re interested in exhibiting or attending (it’s free!) drop me a line. Here’s a few shots of some of the people in the audience.
I think it’s fair to say a good time was had by all. I hope to see some of you at our next event.
I shot an event called Anti Social Media Underground at the Backstage bar in Lan Kwai Fong on January 12th for the good folks at Hong Kong’s Underground. The concept was to forget all about social media for a few hours and pay attention to the bands on stage. Here are a few highlights:
Opening act Innisfallen:
Dr. Eggs flying high:
And finally spacey progressive sounds from Macau’s Forget The G:
Here’s our hostess with the mostest, Chris B:
And one of many audience shots:
I mostly shot without a flash tonight (except for the audience shots), attempting to preserve the ambiance and gaining the ability to shoot in burst mode. I think the flash would have served me better during Dr. Eggs’ energetic set and it did mean some extra work in terms of getting the colors reasonably right given the stage lighting there. I might go back to shooting with the flash next time out.
There’s an entire gallery of images from the evening here.
And remember, if you’d like to hire me to shoot your band or event, contact me and let’s talk!
The first Open Show Hong Kong took place at PASM Workshop last night, featuring photos and presentations from Jonathan van Smit, Yoav Horesh, Brett Elmer, Thomas Luk, Kenny Yung, Tse Oi Lam and Sean Creamer. It was a great showcase as each photographer not only showed their work but also discussed some of the how and why behind their pictures as well as taking questions from the audience. Here’s a slide show of some of my photos from the event:
