Big Money Shot Round 2 Finals

August 31, 2009

This past Friday (August 28th), I decided to head out to the Big Money Shot Round 2 Finals with my camera and check out the action. For those of you unfamiliar with the contest, it’s put on every year by Ottawa’s own Live 88.5 radio station. It’s basically a year long battle of the bands contest with the winner walking away with $250,000 in talent support to help further their musical career.

On the bill were My Favourite Tragedy, Tympanic, the Watters Brothers, Hollerado and We Surrender. I was only able to stick around for the first 4 bands. You can check out some shots of the bands in action below.

Congratulations to Hollerado, the round 2 winners, who walked away with $25,000 in support and a place in the year end finals.

And so the journey begins…

This is it…….my first blog, and my first blog post. With this blog I plan to share my journey into the world of professional photography. I will share my successes, which will hopefully be many, as well as my failures, which hopefully will help me grow as a photographer. At this point I don’t know where this blog is headed, or where my journey will take me, but after years of dreaming of  a career I’d truly enjoy, I guess it’s time to find out.
