no, this isn't some kind of advert. i just thought, i've seen a lot of great pictures out there and a lot seem to be of hardcore or punk bands. i think too many people rely on technical gimmicks, but for me what makes a shot a great one is if it can capture something rare or if it can freeze a situation and capture some of its activity.

so i was just thinking, do people have favourite photographers or photos (not necessarily strictly hardcore, but obviously we're in the HC forum so keep it mostly relevant i guess)? just thought it might be an interesting idea.

favourite shot of mine is:

by ricky adam.

obviously some stuff is copyrighted or whatever so keep that in mind.

I made a thread like this ages ago, here are some of my favorites:


'And every Saturday night you know it's, hardcore STAGE DIVES HIGH FIVES!' This was taken at a show in I think it was either Leeds or Nottingham a few years back.


This shot just rules so hard, it's a xSheepx photo.


Taken by xSheepx of Modern Life Is War in Manchester '06


Taken by xSheepx this time of Justice playing in Manchester '06

I just realised I plugged a ton of xSheepx's photos but they're the ones that stick for me, if you Google 'xSheepx photography' there's a link to his MySpace. There are tons of photos which are absolutly amazing but I'm having trouble finding the ones I'm thinking of.

Edit: Here's the video with most of my favorite shots in: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wDv-eBPRasQ&NR=1

those are some really well taken shots. especially the top one, i love that.

i didn't actually search, i hadn't ever seen one so i assumed noone had done one before. ill look for the old thread see if its still around.

Got to love those fisheye lens shots. The way they seem to suck everything around but at the same time don't look unbelievably fiddled about with is great.

Nice on with that high fives photo, seems to capture everything perfectly.

I'd assume the one in grey trousers and black t-shirt jumping into the guy with the white t-shirt, lighting probably affected the photo a bit.

I wouldn't say a friend but I've spoken to him once or twice. But then again you ask anyone who's into hardcore over here and they'll know xSheepx.
