Red Heart Rum presents Fokofpolisiekar

Fokofpolisiekar at Arcade Empire.

Chase and I were commissioned to do some stills and video of one of Fokof's tour shows at Arcade Empire this month for Red Heart Rum. 
It's always amazing shooting Fokof, the huge crowd was mad and Fokof are always balls to the walls. Besides there being a media pit / crowd barrier and a douche photographer with no stage etiquette, it was a killer show.

Free Show


Free Show at the Buck 'n Hog Emmarentia JHB.

Japan and I
Make Overs

Chase had the idea of shooting the show using wireless speedlights, I couldn't resist shooting either. We managed to get two cool looks where I shot with two speedlights, one on each side and chase shot with his pop-up as a fill and one of the speedlights either as a key or back light. 
I shot on a DX 35mm and Chase shot on a super wide.
I'll post a link to his rad wide angles soon!
