Portraits: Four Year Strong

Portraits: For Year Strong, Warped Tour 2010

As one of the last sets of the day, we caught up with Four Year Strong at Warped Tour as part of our portrait series. By the time we set up with the 5-piece from Massachusetts, the sun was low enough in the sky to create a little drama in the clouds.

Photographer's Notes:

This shoot with Four Year Strong was a one-light setup. The keylight here was a Profoto AcuteB head fired through a 3? Creative Light Octabox. The softbox was mounted on a carbon fiber monopod, which gives some great flexibility for these sorts of location shoots.

End Notes:

What's better than a band who's willing to load into a club car at the drop of a hat? As luck would have it, a cart was parked right next to our shoot, so Four Year Strong happily piled in.

My Camera DSLR and Lenses for Concert Photography

Nikon Z 7:
I use two Nikon Z 7 for my live music photography. A true do-it-all mirrorless camera with amazing AF, great speed and fantastic resolution.


Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8S:
The 24-70mm is my go-to lens. The range is ideal for stage front photography and the image quality is superb.


Nikon 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 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.
