KEXP & Starbucks & STG: Little Big Show #5

Sbux Little Big Show #5

Last Sunday evening I photographed for Starbucks their Little Big Show #5, featuring Father John Misty and The Walkmen at the sold-out Neptune Theater in Seattle. All of the proceeds from the show, more than $14,000+(!), went to the local organization Youth In Focus. YIF has more than 250 teens involved in its after school photography program and 4 lucky students had the chance to shoot the show with all-access passes, along with me & KEXP’s photographer. It was a really fun experience mentoring these student photographers – they definitely had their own unique style and it was fun to watch them shoot, at least when I wasn’t looking through my own viewfinder.

Speaking of my viewfinder, I had a chance to shoot this concert with the new Canon 6D – my first chance to check out this new Canon body. Coupled with the 70-200L f/2.8 IS II, 24-70 f/2.8 IS II, & 35mm f/1.4 L, the 6D produced some great images in the low-light conditions, even with my ISO cranked up to 8,000.

Here are a few of my favorite photos of Father John Misty & The Walkmen. More photos from the show will be up on Starbucks’ website soon. In the meantime, you can check out my other Starbucks galleries from Little Big Show #1 with Pickwick and Fly Moon Royalty & Little Big Show #2 with Poor Moon and Real Estate.
