There are some performers that have to work at everything and others who have a natural stage presence. Connor Bracken is someone who has an incredible stage presence. He is probably one of my favorite people to capture in photography. He radiates rock and roll through and through. A person cant help but get drawn into any performance he puts on whether he has a full band behind him or just an acoustic guitar, he is incredible. Here are the shots from last nights show at Asbury Park Brewing.
The same night as my other photo shoot I ran into a buddy of mine Connor Bracken who i’ve been trying to catch up with to shoot some portraits of. We decided why not do it then and there. Here are the rad shots of a rock and roll front man. These were also shot using my new camera so it was a bit of a test. Special guest appearance of Tom from High School Superstars.
Monday night I had the pleasure of photographing a post-hardcore band from North Carolina called Harm. Let me start out by saying any band that brings their own lighting to a basement show is a win in my book. They energy is so amazing and they are straight up killer. The passion they put in their performance is top of the top. Just so happens they are friends with one of my favorite bands to photograph EMPTY which makes this a bit more special. Even with missing members of their band they still managed to bring the energy. On top of everything they are such amazingly nice people. Please take time out of your day to check out this killer band.
Here are the shots from monday of HARM.
