Kanye Lens Vs Soundwave

December 1, 2015

For those of you who are new to what I do, in February 2013 I independently published and funded a book of my work on Soundwave Festival as the official photographer, from 2008 – 2012 (the first 5 years of the festival being a national event). The book has definitely been a highlight of my career, something I’m super proud of and something that I’m keen to do again. I have 350 out of the 2000 individually numbered books left. I’m in the middle of working on another longterm project at the moment so I want to close the doors on Kanye Lens Vs Soundwave Volume 1, and focus on my new project. I won’t be doing a repress of this book.

So if you’ve ever been to a Soundwave Festival, this is like a photo album of a heap of cool moments you may not have seen with your own eyes. And yes I know you can look at photos on the internet for free, but they won’t always be there. Websites come and go, images get deleted and lost from hard drives and in 30 years time when you want to reminisce, what do you look at? Just saying! For the month of December for a one-time-only-because-it’s-way-too-cheap-price, I’m selling the book for $20 plus shipping. That’s fucking crazy. Well Merry Christmas, get yourself a bargain at my expense. Buy the book www.kanyelens.com

Below are my favourite 100 images from the book. Their is over 600 images in the book so I hope you find some favourites too.

10 years…

SWN_12th_June_2005

Today being the 12th June 2015, marks my 10yr tenure of photographing live music. My first gig shooting was Something With Numbers at the Espy. A friend who knew the band was going and said he could get me a door spot, I had just gotten my first DSLR (Canon 20d) and thought it might be fun to take some photos. So I went, took some photos, had some fun and started to look into how I could get door spots into other shows to take photos of bands I liked. And here we are 10yrs later.

I never actually thought music photography would become a job, I just did it initially because I was hooked trying to capture that one great photo that summed up the show.

Fun fact. I have issued 981 invoices. My first invoice was $100 for some live photos that were used in album artwork. It was never paid.

I did aim to have a book ready with 10 years of work but unfortunately with the other projects I’m working on, I just haven’t had the time. Maybe in another 10!

Also Tone Deaf recently did a quick chat with me about what I do
