Toronto Concert Photographer Don Quincy - DQC Photo Shoots Halestorm and More!
One of the cool things that I am fortunate to do is take live concert photos. It is can be a lot of fun but extremely challenging as well. You and the other concert photographers usually only get three songs to get the shots that will be submitted to the company you are shooting for. Sometimes the lighting can be insanely amazing for shooting and at other times you are struggling to get the shoots as the lighting may be amazing to watch a show with, it is far from enjoyable for live concert photography. When the lighting is good, it is fun, when bad... not so much as I do not want to have to hand in bad shots or edit for hours trying to get the over saturated color out of the image. Some of the bands I have shot include The Eagles, Slayer, Halestorm, Demi Lovato, Carly Rae Jepsen, Fallout Boy, The Agonist, Anthrax, 5FDP, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Fifth Harmony, Rob Zombie, Korn, Shaggy and many more. One of the other amazing feel good happenings is when a band shares one or more of your pictures on their webpage, Facebook or Instagram like Anthrax, Halestorm, The Wild, The Unchained, and Death Angel as well as others have! I have shot in "interesting" little joints right up to the ACC and each show has its own challenges but at the end of the day, it is always exciting and exciting to get to capture live music events! Be sure to check out my Toronto Concert Photography page for more shots from this and many more concerts.

This image was taken at the ACC here in Toronto while on assignment for Epoch Times for their entertainment section. It was shot from the soundboard although it looks like I was a foot away! This image and more were posted in their online gallery.
