The Expendables played another sold out show at the House of Blues - Sunset Strip on Saturday night. Good times all around.
Shot my buddies The Expendables again last month. They opened for Pepper at Club Nokia in downtown LA. The guys put on a great show as usual and as always it was a fun show to shoot.
So back in February my buddies The Expendables called me up and asked me to come out and shoot their show at the Roxy in West Hollywood. I had just received my new 5D Mark II and was super excited to try it out in a concert environment. Well, I got a little over-excited and I wasn’t ready for the super fast shutter speed on my new camera. I ended up taking over 2500 photos and killing two and a half 16GB memory cards… Let’s just say it took me a little while to edit through all the photos and then finally pick a few of my favorites…
The Expendables headlined at the House of Blues – Sunset Strip in Hollywood last Saturday night. They put on an amazing performance as usual. I have to say it’s been awesome to have had the opportunity to see my friends from Santa Cruz go from an opening act at a tiny venue in San Francisco to headlining a 5 band, 44 venue, 53 day, completely sold out US tour. They definitely deserve every bit of it. theexpendables.net
The guys in The Expendables liked the photos I shot of them at the Canyon Club so much that they asked me to come back out and take their official band photo. I was more than happy to lend my time, so after the show at the Avalon in Hollywood and a few drinks in, we decided to do the shoot…
A few weeks back I got invited to go shoot The Expendables when they opened for NoFX at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills, CA. I was stoked to have had the opportunity and thank my buddy Shaun for hooking it up. I’ve shot the guys before when they headlined at the Catalyst in Santa Cruz and when they opened for Fishbone in SF. But that was a few years back and I didn’t really know what I was doing back then… Anyways, I’m pretty stoked on how these came out, I just hope they like them also…
