Few things screams 90s pop music more than the Backstreet Boys. The gang still has it even after some 20 years of being a boy band. This is one rare shoot for me as I never cover pop groups, but it was a blast to the past to see songs from my childhood performed in front of me.
By far one of the most popular bands in Canada in the past 10 years, Billy Talent's appeal to a younger generation has given young people a voice that will not be silenced. This modern rock band kills it live with their energy and extremely underrated instrumental work. Check these guys out if you ever get a chance, you will never be disappointed.

This was a bit of a curveball for me to shoot given my music tastes, but I was completely impressed with the energy these guys brought to the stage. The lighting was incredible, the music was great, the band kept the audience clamouring for more. It turned out to be one of my favourite concert shoots by the end of the night.
Megadeth has been a staple in Metal for over 30 years. Selling out arenas and playing festivals for hundreds of thousands of people Megadeth know how to bring it and feed off the energy of the crowd. This was an incredible show and I am always looking forward to shooting these legends next.

Slayer is one of those metal bands that you just have to appreciate. These legends of thrash have remained at the top of their game for decades and never disappoint live. They are the epitome of what all bands should strive for for a long and relevant career.
