On June 3rd, 2017 Temple University hosted one of the largest concerts for year at the Liacouras Center. The sold out show featured opening acts such as Whethan and Kiiara and followed with a stunning spectacle of the Chainsmokers. Their show featured hit songs as well as a creative and spectacular background images. The crowd was ecstatic to see them perform with fans coming from all over the country. Photographing was a bit of a challenge when the Chainsmokers came on because their stage would constantly change and have sometimes would have them on high-rises, which would be outside my view for my camera. All together the show was a success and hopefully will bring back a big crowd for future shows at the venue.
On April 20th, 2017, Temple University hosted their own version of the famous festival Cochella at the Liacouras Center on campus. The event hosted many artists such as: Matthew Schuler (known from The Voice), DNCE, and Flo Rida. The event brought in a high energy crowd and was great to photograph. Being up close and personal with these different artists was quite the experience that wants me shooting more shows.
March 22nd, 2017 was such a great experience for me. I photographed for Temple University's Liacourus Center and was able to shoot the bands: Beartooth, Underoath, and Bring Me The Horizon. Being able to shoot shows is both fun and nerve-racking at the same time. You only get so much to shoot for each band, so you have to be on your A-game and make sure your settings are on key. After the shows over and you go home, you get to look at the great shots you just took.
