I don’t even know what to say about this show. It was incredible. I rarely get photos that I love of opening bands at The Ogden just because the lighting can be tricky, but Lany were super fun to shoot and their lights weren’t terrible. Mostly, they were really fun to shoot though.
I have been listening to Troye Sivan non stop lately, so I may be a little biased, but he was incredible to shoot. He’s so emotive, his lights were flawless, and his stage presence was incredible. It was also nice that me and one other photographer were the only people in the tiny barricade. We bonded, I bonded with the girls up front, it was amazing.
Okay, I’m downplaying it a little. I’ve been freaking out about these photos since the moment they were taken. The photo of Troye reaching over the barricade and grabbing his fans hands is one of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken, even rivaling that photo of Jason that I really love. (Which, if you know me, you know is a really big deal.) Not only am I really happy with these photos and still freaking out about how amazing this show was, I am completely in awe of how incredibly kind Troye Sivan’s fans are. From the girls who kept me company and talked photography with me at the barricade to the amazing people that have shown support for my photography online after the show, I’ve encountered nothing but incredible people.
Seriously, if I could shoot Troye Sivan every day, I would. (Troye Sivan, if you’re reading this, have your people call my people. By my people, I mean me, cause I don’t have people. Let me be your tour photographer.)
I shot this show for my publication, The Prelude Press. You can read my (slightly less obnoxious/emotional) review HERE.
