On Thursday night I had the pleasure of photographing the Arkells at Rogers Place for radio station 100.3 The Bear. Edmonton was the first stop on their 2019 Rally Cry Tour, originally scheduled for February 7th they were great sports and give that day after Justin Timberlake had to reschedule his Edmonton dates last year. This is the first time I’ve seen the Arkells live and had the chance to photograph them. I can personally say they were a blast to photograph and think it really show though in the photos. Here are my photos from the show and I hope you enjoy them!

Holy shit! I still can't believe that I had Alice Cooper in front of my camera! On August 23rd I had the great pleasure of photographing the one and only Alice Cooper at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium for radio station 100.3 The Bear. I have to definitely says this was one of the top photo experiences that I've had so far. This was my first time seeing him perform live and being able to take photos of it has me beyond words. I have been a fan of Alice Cooper since I was 11 years old and this has been the first at it actually worked out to see him. Only had to wait 15 years, but it was well worth the wait. Here are my photo's from the recent show, I hope you enjoy them!
This week I got a double dose of Sebastian Bach catching him at both the Red Deer and Edmonton stops on his tour. For those who don't know Sebastian Bach has been my favourite singer since I was 12 years old, i'm now 26 haha. While I was in Red Deer I decided to do the meet and greet, I had met Sebastian a few years ago but I had something that I really wanted to show him. He has already seen my youth gone wild tattoo like his but I wanted to show him my Alberta licence plate that said 18 and Life on it. He loved it. Sebastian put me on the guest list for the Edmonton show, how cool was that. How often can you say your favourite singer put you on a guest list. Here are some photo from the recent show in Edmonton I hope you enjoy them!
This show was one for the books, what a killer line-up! On May 20th I had the pleasure of photographing Slayer with guests Lamb of God, Anthrax, Behemoth & Testament for radio station 100.3 The Bear.
A full house of fans got the chance to see Slayer on their sold out farewell tour that stopped in Edmonton at the Shaw Conference Centre this past week. I've been fortunate to have photographed three out of the five bands before and seen all of them perform in the past. Like with many other shows I look forward to being able to photograph the bands in the future. With Slayer I'm very happy I've seen them three times in concert and had the pleasure of photographing them twice. Here are my photos from this I hope you enjoy them!

What a great night this was to say the least! Who doesn't enjoy getting to spend family day with your metal head family and friends! Radio station 100.3 The Bear had me out photographing the Killthrax Tour 2018 consisting of Havok, and co-headliners Anthrax and Killswitch Engage.
This was the first time I've had Anthrax in front of my lens, but I've been lucky in the past few years to have photographed both Havok, and Killswitch Engage. I had an amazing time at this show running to friends I hadn't seen in a long and as well hearing the bands play and getting to photograph them. Here are my photos from that show I hope you enjoy them!
In the past 10 years I've had the chance to see Avenged Sevenfold numerous times in concert but on February 15th was the first time I've had a chance to photograph them. Radio station 100.3 The Bear had me out that night capturing the photos of these guys.
A7X was one of the first bands that got me hooked on concert photography. When I was just 16, an old friend of mine photographed them at an event called taste of chaos. I just thought that was one of the coolest things getting the chance to see a band up so close in person and photograph them as well. Years later I now get to photograph bands all the time as part of my job as a photographer. If there is something that you really love and want to do it, go for it! You never know where life if going to bring you!
Here are the photos from their recent perfomance here in Edmonton on February 15th at Rogers Place. I hope you enjoy them!
