I’ve been listening to the awesome Asking Alexandria for years now and I finally get a chance to photograph them last week in Nosturi. Opening for them was a band I was not initially acquainted with, The Word Alive, but it was super fun discovering them and photographing them for the first time as well! Enjoy!

Another band off my bucket list! Since meeting the Epica members at a meet & greet many years ago when I was still in high-school I’ve wanted to photograph them at one of their concerts, and I’m so happy it finally happened! They performed in Tavastia this week and put on an amazing show, together with the finns from Crimson Sun. Enjoy the photo gallery below!

Diablo captured my ears and love the first time I saw them live in Jyvaskyla in the Autumn of 2015. I photographed them then and when I heard they are celebrating their 20th anniversary in Tavastia I knew I had to be there to once more, photograph them. Enjoy and don’t forget to click on the photos to see the slideshow!

My second gig for 2017 was a big one for me, as Sonata Arctica has been an inspiration and one of my all-time fav bands for as long as I can remember. Therefore, I treated this event in a special way and was honored to be allowed to photograph the occasion. The gig was amazing and I hope I did the photos justice. Enjoy!

Avatar @ Doornroosje, Nijmegen – 07-12-2016

After the release of their new album ‘Feathers & Flesh’, Avatar decided to go on a tour as well. Luckily, they decided to come to The Netherlands during and tour, and it wasn’t a bad decision. This show would be the biggest sold out headlining show they had ever done, which of course already says a lot about the quality of the band. However, their quality isn’t exactly ‘confirmed’ until after the concert, and so I had to check it out myself as well. Of course, I was excited to see them, after such an amazing album release, and my previous experiences.

The first band was another band from Sweden. They were called The Last Band, despite playing first. It became clear to me that the crowd was purely there for Avatar, as not many seemed to have heard of them before...

Last Wednesday I managed to catch a band I have been a fan of for a few years now, Powerwolf! I was super curious to see how they will sound live, and knew their stage presence will be fun to photograph. The boys didn’t disappoint, the show was incredibly entertaining and I managed to get some nice shots! Opening for them that evening was Civil War. Photos below, enjoy and don’t forget to click on them to see the larger files!
