Our November “Concert Photo” Contest Winner


Todd Lackovitch

with his photo of Bobby ‘Blitz’ Ellsworth of Overkill

taken at the Fillmore in Silver Springs, Md




We love this photo of Bobby ‘Blitz’ Ellsworth. There’s a moment before the storm that is captured where it seems he’s anchoring down and ready to unleash the thrash. Even with this backlighting, there’s so much detail still showing in the front.

We tried to narrow it down to five Honorable Mentions but each of these photos had to be shared.


This Month’s Honorable Mentions are:



Jim Wilkinson with his photo of Niclas Engelin of The Halo Effect taken at the ProgPower USA in Atlanta Ga. You have Niclas looking into the camera and the color palette tha Jim used makes this photo vibrant and interesting.

Savannah Bright of Bright Music Photography with her photo of a Nameless Ghoul from the Swedish rock band Ghost taken at the WaMu THeater in Seattle, Wa.  We just love the way he’s crouched down looking at her with that tilted head.This is such a clean photo in every way.

Jess Harshbarger with her photo of Chad Gray of Mudvayne in Bonner Springs, Ks. Jess captured a great photo of Chad while turning it into more of a b& w and leaving just the blood read. So very cool.

Holly of Holly Roy Photography with her photo of Extreme at the Toyota Oakdale Theater in Wallingford, Ct. It’s hard enought getting a good shot one one or two of the band members together, It’s hard to capture the whole band in one shot without a wide angle view but Holly did it. So great to have the drummer coming through the center break.

Ruth Preston with her photo of Lajon Witherspoon of Sevendust at the Andrew J Brady Music Center in Cincinnati, Oh. This is a perfectly times shot because you get Lajon’s hair taking so much of the photo yet you can perfectly see the emotion on his face still.
