Once a year I take a break from my normal photography to immerse myself in concert photography. Sled Island is one of my favourite weeks of the year. If you have never experienced this magical week in June, you are missing out. Downtown Calgary is often a dreary, quiet place after 6pm. But during Sled Island, the streets are filled with people on bicycles racing from one venue to the next. There is always 100 things to see at once during Sled Island, since it happens at multiple venues simultaneously. I also love the rush of concert photography: waiting for that awesome moment, feeling the pulse of the crowd in a small intimate venue, and the interesting and dynamic stage lighting.
