On this last day of 2022, it is cool to see that I could photograph way more artists than in the previous 2 years due to COVID-19. 🙂 Below are some figures about my concert photography year.
Due to the pandemic, my concert year started only in late February with Killthelogo. From then onwards, I got the chance to photograph some cool artists again: Amy MacDonald, Suzanne Vega, Nightwish, Rise Against, Skunk Anansie, Selah Sue, Bloc Party, Lamb of God, Joss Stone, Parkway Drive, Machine Head, Amon Amarth, Beth Hart and In Flames to name just a few.
Once more, I need to say a big thank you to my wife for taking care of our toddlers while I am enjoying music and photographing artists in venues small and big.
Plenty of concerts are already on my planning. One band I really want to photograph is The Ghost Inside, which should be possible at one of my favourite festivals Jera On Air. Other artists I’d love to photograph in 2023: P!nk at Werchter, Rammstein, Bring Me The Horizon, Defeater, Annisokay, Be Well, Pixies, Krezip, Eels, Metallica, Halestorm, Slipknot, Iron Maiden, Blink 182, and Rage Against The Machine (if they announce new dates in 2023). Also Hell Is For Heroes in London is a show I’d love to do. But of course there’s way more gigs I’d love to photograph 😉
