Justin Timberlake

Friday July 25th 2014 - Bell Center
I'm quiet sure the concert was good (I didn't get to stay after the accredited first three songs), but photography wise, this has had to be in my top 5 of worst experiences, (of all time), since my debut in concert photography, 2006.  Not because of poor light, even though it was far than perfect, nor was it because he didn't come near us once during the 3-song stint, but mainly... because of the conditions we were subjected too.  Let me explain...

We were instructed by management that we'd be shooting from the pit.  But, because the venue was completely sold out, the pit was reduced (moved forward, and we were jammed up against the stage.  The problem, is that not only were we limited to the left side of the stage, but the later was more than 7' high!  Don't get me wrong, I'm not one of those photographers, that thinks that because I work for a venue, that everything should be made easy for us.  I enjoy a good challenge, but would rather it be of a technical nature, instead of it being logistics related.

That being said, I consider this as being a bad judgement call, on the bands management part, as the logical thing would have been to place photo/video personnel at the soundboard with telephoto lenses.  Goes to show you, no matter how big you get in life, you may still end up having incompetent idiots working for you. ;)

This was one of these times, that you grabbed what you could, not what you wanted, nothing short of jumping up in the air, holding a fisheye lens, at arms length, and hope for the best.

Still, here's what we were able to capture, See images HERE

In 2013, we initiated the "GOT INK?" photo tattoo project, to demystify the illusion that ink or "tats" were dedicated towards certain type of people.  

As such, we had the idea of photographing a total of 100 people with as many different occupations as possible.  From "bad-ass" Bikers, to Priests, and everything in between!  The idea is simple... to showcase the fact that nowadays, some people use their bodies as a canvas to show who they are, and that "Ink" can be for everyone.

If you, or anyone you know might be interested in participating in this project, feel free to provide them with this link.

Meanwhile, here's small selection of what we've gathered to date.  HERE
