SWMRS

I didn’t know the SWMRS guys before this day. I had met their tour manager at Leeds Festival and he was very kind – he is also a very good photographer. So I texted him when they were in San Diego and cruised out to the show. I was impressed with the show, and they were nice enough to let me shoot some of my backstage portraits of them after their set.

I like how high he pays his guitar because I try to play guitar and this is where I hold it

He was hard to catch in focus, moved very fast

I love black and white, its nice how he stands out with the rim light

Shadow on the ground does it for me

Trying to shoot and not always focus on the face

Rim light combined with shadows

Got lucky here, wish his leg had more light but I think your mind fills in the blanks

It was hard to photograph him, I couldn’t get close, maybe next time, but I like this
