Rage Against The Machine: A Teaser

Rage Against The Machine @ Lollapalooza

There's this rule in my book of concert photography, and it's simple: When someone sticks their finger in the air, you gotta press the button.

I count myself as fortunate to have photograph Rage's set at Lollapalooza, because only 25 photographers out of all the press at the festival were allowed into the pit. The main reason for this limit was to give security the maximum amount of space in the pit to deal with crowd surfers and people who needed assistance, a choice that shut out the vast majority of press at the event.

This shot of Zack de la Rocha is just a teaser from Rage Against The Machine's performance at Lollapalloza. Stay tuned for the full set, coming up soon!

My Camera DSLR and Lenses for Concert Photography

Nikon D850:
I use two Nikon D850 for my live music photography. A true do-it-all DSLR with amazing AF, fast response, and no shortage of resolution.
nikon-24-70mm-f28-lens-squareNikon 24-70mm f/2.8:
For most gigs, the 24-70mm is my go-to lens. Exceptional image quality at wide apertures and super-functional range.
Nikon-70-200-squareNikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR:
A perfect pair to the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, I can basically shoot any job with the midrange and this lens. Superb image quality.
nikon-14-24mm-f28-lens-squareNikon 14-24mm f/2.8:
Ultra-wide perspective, ridiculously sharp even wide open at f/2.8. I love using this lens up-close and personal, where it excels.
