31 July 20
Huge thanks to the Event Photography Awards for choosing my image of Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip) to be shortlisted for their Music category - you can view the full category and vote right here: Event Photography Awards | Music Category | Will Fahy
Here's the shot which made it to the shortlist - I don't know when voting closes, but I would love everyone to head over and vote for this shot, you do need to pick 5 in total and there are many worthy winning shots there!
This was such a fun shoot, Hot Chip had been on my bucket list to shoot ever since I started shooting events, due to being my favourite band. I had to work surprisingly hard to secure a photopass for this one, but it all came off and I was really happy with the evenings work.
I actually saw this shot coming, his glasses were so reflective and I noticed the keyboard keys in the reflection, I had to lean right over the stage to work an angle past the mic cable, which I didn't love but adds extra depth to the shot so I spent some time making sure I got this shot - I have one or two other variations but this was the best of the bunch as his head was at the perfect angle to get the keys right through the middle of both sides of his glasses.
Below are a few more images from the night.
