Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of shooting the Airborne Toxic Event at the Marathon Music Works for Red Bull. This concert was part of their Sound Select concert series. My job was to capture the badassery of the show — an easy task when the headlining band in question are the Airborne Toxic Event, who put on a killer live show.
This was a great set to shoot. I had photographed the Airborne Toxic Event several years ago at the LouFest Music Festival, but it's always different seeing a band on a festival stage instead of in a real rock club. Marathon Music Works in Nashville, TN was a great venue to showcase the band, and I had a blast shooting for Redbull on this one. Between a great rock band and all access shooting, it was impossible to go wrong.
Oh yes, and it never hurts when you can set up remote lights on stage, either!
Due to the size of the stage, the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 was generally my go-to lens for this show. The Nikon 14-24mm was nice for some stage-front antics, as well as for ultra-wides with drummer Daren Taylor.
