Gallows - Back To The Dives Tour

It's been a while since I've photographed the Gallows live and I know I get nervous before shooting a lot of shows (especially before shows that might be pretty crazy or that doesn't have a barrier). This time I was more nervous after everything that went on with Banquet Records last time I photographed Gallows in Kingston.

Despite taking my camera with me I wasn't 100% sure if I was actually going to take photos but once I got there I decided that there was no way I couldn't take photos.

I'd read that the first band was meant to be Feed The Rhino but it turned out to be a band called Polar who were ok! They set up their pedal boards and microphones on the floort and played their set there which was pretty cool. I felt like I couldn't quite get the angles on the shots. TRC were the second band and it took me a while to get my settings right so the photos are a bit hit and miss but they are always interesting to watch.

I managed to get a spot at the front for Gallows and decided that this time I'd try and not stay in one place for the set. I stayed for most of the set in the middle but then moved to the edges to try and shoot Steph and Lags some more. It was a great show and I think the pictures came out alright.

Fingers crossed I'll get to be shooting their album shows and I can't wait.
