This was one of the hardest shoots to date. The stage was over 6 feet tall and all the photographers were shoved stage left of the catwalk. I’m lucky that I’m tall but still had a hard time even seeing the band on stage. Dave Grohl mostly had his back to us but gave us a few good photo opps. Super dark lighting and a lot of blues. Didn’t get as many great shots as I was hoping for, but the show was spectacular.
