In the past few days the Borger church was home to a bluegrass concert and a blues concert. In February 17 I was back in Vanslag again, but this time for The Roseville Band, alternative indie rock from Wales.
Visited De Spieghel in Groningen last night. They have some terrific concerts there every now and then and when I say that Otis Gibbs was going to perform there, that seemed a great reason to visit the location again.
It’s taken well over a year but the moment has finally arrived! I have finished the book that takes a look at my first ten years in photography: Concert Photography 2001 / 2011.
April 14 2001 marked the day that a new career started, it was my first successful shoot at a concert (Dilana Smith in a café in Balkbrug). After four completely disastrous shoots in a short period before, I swapped a fully manual Olypmus for a brand-spanking new Canon EOS 300 with a 28-200 Tamron lens (with autofocus) and took my first successful photos that evening. I don’t think they’d make the final selection these days, but back then I was hugely impressed.
