Here is the behind the scenes footage shot on my GoPro HD Hero 2 worn on my head during the event. I looked like a bit of a plonker but I think it gives you some sort of an idea of the life of a music photographer. No sex, drugs or sausage rolls just plain hard work whilst everyone else enjoys themselves. You will see I even left the event before it was finished – due to a slipped disc. Apologies for the wobbly footage and framing, I was actually shooting the above photos whilst filming.

 

I have not added many words to the images above as I think you will agree they speak for themselves. I was unfortunate to experience a slipped disc near the end of the set. Not an enjoyable experience at the best of times but especially in front of a crowd of thousands of people.. sitting on the edge of the stage with Armin looking at me and thinking.. you alright chap? See if you can spot that image above :). Many thanks to Gerry at Fresh Events Malta for the commission.

Did you know? One of the above images was stolen by an Italian photographer and entered into a competition. The cheek of some people! At least it was pointed out to me by a fellow photographer before he went ahead and won a new car.
