This past summer (2015) I was on Warped Tour. I brought studio lighting equipment with me so I could take portraits of people throughout the tour. It was one of the last days that I was on the tour and I talked with Ben to set up a quick shoot. I brought my gear to their bus and turned the back of Asking’s empty trailer into my studio. This was my first time working with Asking, and it was a pleasure! Great people. It ended up that everyone wanted a portrait, and I got the whole band in one session.
These had to be quick because I was meeting Blessthefall 30 minutes later to shoot a spread for Alternative Press. Being a music photographer means that you have to work fast. And sometimes you have to work VERY fast. Luckily everything went well and I got the shots with plenty of time to spare to get to the next shoot.
These were shot with the Sigma 50mm f1.4, and a Canon 580ex2 speed light with a large octa box. Awesome lens, lightweight flash, easy set up.
