Photographs From Download Festival

Download Fest was the first of a few fest that I photographed for the company that puts them on. It was different than what I am used to, and it was a learning experience that is for sure. I am hoping to do it all again this year. It was pouring rain most the days and I ran in between stages to get these shots while at the same time downloading my images to the computer and turning them into the fest. I don’t photograph all the artists, just a few – and of the bands I photographed, I liked very few images. Here are my faovrites, it is not much, but it’ll do. Next year will be better.
