One of my earliest attempts at « ghosting » silhouettes. Same session as Les Fantômes du Pont des Arts.
Stanton Moore, my favourite drummer alive. It’s always tricky to catch drummers on frame, I was very pleased with this one.
My first ever attempt at long-exposure. With torrents, « long » is a very relative terms since anything above a fraction of a second makes the whole stream go white.
Angelo Debarre is a unique artist and not at all a Django copycat, but on this picture he looked so much like Django that I had to process it ‘old style’.
My earliest concert shot. It’s the only shot from that whole concert worth retrieving, and though imperfect I have a fondness for it…
Pianists are perhaps the hardest musicians to shoot: you want to have the face, the hands and the keyboard in the frame, and that’s damn hard. This shot of French jazz pianist Laurent deWilde was probably my first successful pianist shot.
I don’t own a super wide-angle lens, but the friend I was walking around Paris with that night does, and he lent it to me for this shot of the Pyramid. It’s a classic shot, but I have to confess it’s effective…
Umphrey’s McGee’s Brendan Bayliss backlit. Probably one of the most original concert shots I’ve done.
