Preview: Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

Bobby Womack tearing it up!

One shot of Bobby Womack performing after his induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, April 4, 2009.

The induction ceremony was an interesting assignment because the inductee performances only lasted for a song or two – so even shorter than the standard “first-three” rule. Combined with the star factor of the people on stage, the commission itself, and the short time, the Hall of Fame gig was a fun challenge all around.

I'm getting to the full sets from these, I promise.

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.
