Gijs Levelt is the wonderful trumpet player from the Amsterdam Klezmer Band.
Avishai Cohen is a very photo friednly musician. I used the Lensbaby here to focus on his face without losing the dynamic look of the instrument.
Sometimes accidental shots can result in interesting things. This shot of Derek Trucks in motion wasn’t planned but I love how it came out. I’m now trying to reproduce that look deliberately, and it’s not easy!
Nicki Parrott is a wonderful singer and bass player, and she exudes joy. I tried to capture her in motion to better express that.
Eric Krasno (known to his fans as Kraz) is the super talented funk and jazz guitarist of bands Soulive and Lettuce. He has very contorted expressions when he’s playing his solos, which of course is a boon for photographers!
There are concert venues in Paris where you know they’ll never let you in with a DSLR, so I attended this Stanley Clarke / Stewart Copeland gig with my Panasonic LX-5. The shots were noisy and less detailed, but I managed to get this one, which I’m really proud of.
Fred Wesley is a funk legend, an amazing player, and a fun entertainer. And a good subject for photography!
Singer and guitarist Jamie McLean opening for the Dirty Dozen Brass Band in New Orleans. This is one of my most successful Lensbaby shots and the reason why I still occasionally try to use the Lensbaby in low lit concert halls despite the challenges.
Bob Brozman is one of my favourite musicians and certainly my favourite performer. Catching him isn’t easy though as he’s constantly in motion.
