Yeah Yeah Yeahs, 2006
Yeah Yeah Yeahs were the weekend's main draw of the ATP that I was shooting for Plan B magazine. However, I nearly missed this, as by the time I ambled up to the photo pit, security had stopped all pass holders from entering as there was no more room.

My only option was to take up a position on the crowd's side of the barriers and in front of the speakers. Fortunately I was carrying a 300mm telephoto lens that I rarely used and although I couldn't see the band when they came on stage, I turned out to be extremely well placed for when Karen O moved to the centre of the stage.

I came away with three stand out photographs of Karen in profile, one of which is in black and white with an extended arm and a raised middle finger. This photograph of her singing delightedly into a dangling microphone had publishable potential for text to be added on the right side and it was considered for Plan B's double page spread but in the end that was filled with a raw capture of Liars.
