While the Fillmore is a beautiful venue and a great place to see a show, I’m beginning to not want to shoot there any more. The last 2 or 3 times I’ve been there to shoot, there has been no photo pit. So essentially I have to deal with a packed house full of people. It’s not easy to go and get up front unless I get to the venue 2 hours early…not happening with this guy. And so once again I was essentially shooting from the bar on the left side of the venue above the crowd’s heads and through their hands [and cell phones]. The lights were surprisingly good for this one.

If you like what you see, you can support the site by purchasing photos here.

I’m available for hire to shoot your next concert, event, etc. Feel free to contact me for a quote and availablity.
