U2 performed at M&T Bank Stadium on June 22nd to a near sellout crowd. One of the many benefits of working with the Ravens is that I also get to cover big events that happen at their stadium even if they aren’t related to the team directly. Although I am not a fan of U2 myself, the stage production they put on for the show was a spectacle to say the least.
The only bummer was that all of the photographers got stuck on this little platform on the corner of the stage and we couldn’t move around at all. Even though it wasn’t an ideal spot and my 70-200 didn’t really get me as close as I wanted, I tried to make the best of things and stay creative. I did get some special access after the first three songs were over. I was able to shoot some images from the upper level of the stadium and a few of those turned out really nice. Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy…
On September 9th, the Baltimore Ravens hosted a concert at Power Plant Live in downtown Baltimore to kickoff their 2010 football season. I was there shooting for the Ravens covering meet and greets, fans and bands including Charm City Devils, Sick Puppies, Flyleaf and Buckcherry. Despite bad lighting and and a “less than desirable” background I had a lot of fun shooting….as I normally do. Enjoy!
