Tuska Festival 2018 – Day by Day Review

Category: ArticlesConcert Reviews

There is a first time for everything, and so I had my first ever at Tuska festival. I had not much to judge it from beforehand, other than the stories of others enjoying the festival the previous years. Sadly we weren’t blessed with brilliant weather as they had predicted, but all in all it didn’t pour down on us, so we were good. Some of us (yes, that is me) even suffered a slight sunburn from it.

The festival wasn’t as big as other festivals I’ve had experienced, yet it was a decent and good size. It had three stages not too far away from each other, which was quite nice, as it didn’t take long to walk from one to another. The main stage and the tent were pretty close to each other, but never would a band play at the same time on both of them, so sound wise it wasn’t a bother at all...

One of my teenage band loves, Cradle Of Filth, came to cold Helsinki last wednesday for an epic show! I never had the pleasure of seeing these wonderfully artistic musicians live before so was incredibly happy to not only be able to check out their live performance but also photograph it. Check out my shots below!

PAIN @ Virgin Oil – 03.02.2018

Category: ArticlesConcert Photography

It’s been 8 years since I first saw PAIN live as a teenager. Back then they used to be one of my all-time favourite bands and I’ve always remembered very fondly meeting Peter Tägtgren as he was one of the kindest and lovely people ever! Because of that, when I heard they will be visiting Helsinki I knew I need to be there to photograph them and watch them live again. Below you can check out the photos I took last night:

Dan Niculescu (Between Colors) – Artfully tip toeing between colors

Category: ArticlesInterviews

Happy New Year guys! Hopefully this will be a good one for you and me, so let’s start with something I haven’t done on this page in a long time: an interview. I stopped doing interviews a year and a half ago or so, when I decided it’s easier for me to just focus on one of my loves: photography. However, when the opportunity presented itself to have a nice chat with my friend Dan from Between Colors about their awesomely talented group and the new EP Simulacrum (at whose release concert I was invited and took some lovely photos also featured here because shameless self promotion) I couldn’t say no. Dan is an awesome guy and it’s always a pleasure to hear him talk about his art. Check out what he said below!

Alex: First of all, congratulations for Simulacrum, it’s a very cohesive album an...

My amazing and super talented friends from Between Colors had an album release party in our hometown in Romania and I knew I would not want to miss it! They created a special show for the release of their new artistic baby ‘Simulacrum’ and it was definitely was all they promised to be and more. I took and edited a bunch of photos for them but decided to post my 10 favorite ones here as well, because sharing is caring! Check these guys out, they are on their way to greatness!
