As I mentioned in my selection of my favorite music photography images of 2012, the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas was easily one of my favorite gigs of the year. This festival features huge acts, fantastic production, and a whole team of great photographers. Truly, it was a honor to be a part of.

Before posting the individual sets from the 2012 iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas, I thought I’d go ahead and post a few of my favorite images from all the sets.

I had the honor of working on the official photo team for iHeartRadio and without a doubt, this was easily one of my favorite jobs of the year. Here are some of the highlights from the first day of the festival, which included performances by No Doubt, Bon Jovi, Jason Aldean, Psy, Lil Wayne, Swedish House Mafia, Usher, Green Day and Rihanna.

My Camera DSLR and Lenses for Concert Photography

D800_24_70_front-squareNikon D800:
I use two of the Nikon D800 for the majority of my work. High resolution, excellent high ISO in a robust but still compact body.
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.
