Greg Carlin

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

I recently went to see “Zebra and Giraffe” play their final show of their acoustic tour of South Africa.  I took my camera with in hopes of shooting photos of the whole band…  Well, as with many of the live shows down here, it didn’t quite work out as there was pretty much only one light, focused on the front-man, “Greg Carlin”.  My band shoot turned into the “Greg Carlin”.  So, with really low light and my 70-200mm lens, these are the shots I managed to capture from pretty much the very backrow.

 

Zebra & Giraffe live at Tanz Cafe

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

Shoting photos of live bands always proves to be quite a challenge for me!  I can never decide which lens I wanna use and/or if I wanna use flash or not.  At a recent Zebra & Giraffe show I decided to try something totally different.  My 70-200mm lens!  I realy wasn’t sure how it would work out but I’m glad I tried it as the images came out pretty clear and it was really cool to shoot the band from a distance and not have to battle with the people up front for a spot!  I really had to up my ISO setting quite a bit so I decided to shoot mostly in Black & White.

Zebra & Giraffe album launch

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

I was recently invited to shoot some photos of Zebra & Giraffe at the album launch in downtown Johannesburg, at a place called “The Alexander Theater”.  The guys put on a great show and you could see how the crowd had been anticipating the new album, they loved it!  Here are a couple of photos I took.  Enjoy!

Greg Carlin of Zebra and Giraffe

These shots are from the same as the shots in my last post of Alan.  The palce was packed and there really wasn’t much room for me to move around!  Alan and Greg were closest to me and that’s why all my shots are pretty much of just the 2 of them!  Sorry guys!  Next time it’ll be you!  So, these shots are of Greg, the Front-man of “Zebra and Giraffe”. 

Alan T. Shenton

These are some shots I took of Alan with his band ‘Zebra and Giraffe’ at a club in Pretoria called, ‘Tings an’ Times’ which is kind of a Reggae club I guess…  Alan and his band played hard and the crowd loved it and so did I!  Check them out!

The Explosion

Friday, February 6th, 2009

I saw ‘The Explosion’ play in London when they opened up for AFI in October of 2006.  They played at the Brixton which was packed to what I thought was capacity!  I liked this shot I managed to get of the bass guitarist.
