One of my (Coralee’s) first loves is live music. From flying to California for a weekend to see a ton of bands at Coachella to driving 8 hours what seems like once a month in the summertime to Minneapolis, I just CANNOT get enough! So to have been asked to photograph one of my fave local bands, The Duhks , for the second time at their sold out hometown show at The WECC for their new album, Beyond the Blue, was an honour yet again! Thanks lovies, I always have the best time catch up pre-show, being able to photograph from whatever vantage point that I desire (including on stage…can’t get better than that!) and witnessing the amazing energy that is your show!
(…and the majority of the group shots were taken in a span of about 3 minutes during the intermission. For those that think that photography is all about taking photos, you’re sorely mistaken. It’s mostly about using what you have (or are granted), being prepared AND utilizing the vibe of your subjects. In between sets? That’s when musicians are full of adrenaline and more than happy to laugh at you!)
