www.ishootshows.com Powered By Rackspace Hosted

As I mentioned several weeks ago in the post “Thank You For Supporting www.ishootshows.com,” I've recently had the nice problem of having way too much traffic to this little website. Apparently, you all seem to like music photography.

After continuing issues of excessive resource usage with my previous web host of 5 years, I've decided to move ishootshows.com to Rackspace and their Cloud Hosting. 

For me, this is a special kind of milestone. As I've mentioned before, I when I started this site back in 2007, it was just a way of sharing my concert photography and experiences as a music photographer. The fact that the readership of this site has grown to warrant the robust level of hosting and service that Rackspace provides is more than a nice affirmation that this site resonates with some of you out there.

Thanks for reading and for melting down the shared servers of my previous host.

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.
