Billy Idol

When your first frame of the night is the moment Billy Idol comes onstage while simultaneously calling you out – chances are high for a great night of shooting.

Demonstrating relevance and widespread appeal across generations as well as trends in the music industry, Billy Idol and the exceptional lineup of Steve Stevens (lead guitar), Jeremy Colson (drums), Billy Morrison (ryhthm guitar), Stephan McGrath (bass), and Derek Sherinian (keyboards) perform an enthralling set in a large contemporary production of music spanning over 3 decades.

Shooting Notes:

Chastain Park Amphitheater has a waist high stage and no formal pit requiring shooting amongst the VIP table patrons who were clearly enjoying the cool summer night. Most of Atlanta’s media was out this night as well. For the first 3, the majority of photographers packed it in center stage where they largely remained. I chose a lone position stage right, moving to stage left for the third song. Shooting duties were handled by the Nikon 24-70 2.8 and 70-200 2.8 mounted to the Nikon D700′s.
