Switchfoot have always been local heroes in my hometown of San Diego, CA. I had never been to any of their shows and was not sure what to expect. These songs were massive. Their show reminded me of a bigger stadium band performance like U2 or Coldplay. Their connection with the audience and the crowds participation was unreal. Being fairly familiar with some of their radio hits, I was equally impressed with the lesser known songs and how well they connected and moved the audience.
As live performance photo sessions go, you can’t find a better band to work with then Switchfoot. The energy Jon Foreman and the band puts into their performance came across as authentic and inspiring. The guys were really kind and accommodating to work with. Talking to other photographer friends about my experience, we all agreed that “those guys just get it”. Check out the story I shot for my friends at AOL music here.
