VVOV launched the Hellsinki Industrial Festival - Pre-Club event at On the Rocks. VVOV is a familiar name for me from our Morbid North band merchandise partnership and that was why I asked the event organizer if he wanted me to come to this Pre-Club event as well on top of the 2-day main event I was asked to shoot for Club Infektio.
I honestly didn't expect to see On the Rocks so full of people seeing the show middle of the working week, but the house was almost full already during the first of the 3 gigs that night.
VVOV didn't leave the stage cold for long but instead went full-on blasting through the whole show. I'm happy that I was finally able to see them live on stage and do some photography same time.
On the Rocks had also seen some renovation since I was there last time. Now due to the pandemic, I can easily say it's been years since the last time. Changes included a lot of narrower stage area and because of that, I and two other photographers had to be constantly on someone's way watching the show. I hope nobody got annoyed by me bouncing in front of them and I hope you enjoy the shots I was able to take from the show.
"Can I download and share these photos?" - Yes absolutely you can and should! I appreciate it if you can tag @samaelcreative to your posts for the credits, but all Samael Creative event photos are meant to be shared.
"Can I have a print-quality version?" If you are the artist, person in the picture, event organizer, or label then yes it's possible. I do charge a fee based on what the photo is used for and in most cases, a print-quality version requires further editing aka more work. Contact me with further information about the use and I'll be happy to give you an offer.
