So I’ll be honest. This is the first pop punk show I’ve shot in YEARS. Needless to say, it was an incredible experience, and I look forward to shooting many, many more soon. This show was ridiculously crazy, and it was nearly impossible to get a decent shot of the band. Therefore I focused much   Read More …

So I haven’t seen these guys in YEARS. But good God did they surprise. I completely forgot how good they were, and holy cow do they put on a good show. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Way more so than The Dirty Heads, in fact. I’m looking forward to shooting these guys again in the future.   Read More …

This show was fantastic. I really think I’m starting to enjoy working in Columbia. I must say, the laid-back style of the security (or lack thereof) at the Blue Note is really something I can get used to. I shot this one for Matisyahu, and got to meet him afterwards. This also got published on   Read More …

Shot this just for fun. The lighting kind of sucked, so some of the pictures look… Interesting… To say the least. But I digress. Email me if you want me to shoot anything (photo/video) for you! I’m always open! kein@www.keinbartlett.com

Fun show. Got all access to this show, thanks Jake H. and MSA for letting me shoot it. The interview before the show was definitely a highlight of the night. Anyways, yeah. Hit me up if you want a full-res copy of any photo. Also, email me at Kein@www.keinbartlett.com if you ever want to contact   Read More …

This was easily the most amazing show I’ve ever shot. EVER. I planned ahead this time and bought earplugs to prevent the inevitable basshead-syndrome; despite this, I was still deaf afterwards. The bass was so intense that it ended up vibrating the earplugs right out of my ears. Anyways, I experimented with my friend’s 10.5mm   Read More …

The first show I’ve shot in awhile, and I have to say, this was easily the most CRAZY show I’ve ever seen… Seriously, I’ve been to some pretty crazy hype electronic shows, but this one takes the cake… And bakes a few more. No joke, if you ever get the chance to see this guy   Read More …

This was my first major music festival I’ve ever shot, and I have to say it was easily the most fun I’ve ever had while shooting. Me and my friend Jake Hamilton spent most of the long, hot day out here in the pits shooting in front of some 10,000 screaming fans. Admittedly, there were   Read More …

Not gonna lie… He was easily the best act of the whole day. And I’m sure the other 15 photographers in the pit would agree too. There’s a reason why half of my final photos ended up being him. Definitely worth seeing live…

Now I’ve heard a lot about all of these guys before the show, but I gotta tell you… I was pleasantly surprised by all of their performances. I haven’t been to a good heavy-ska show in forever, and BAMF! definitely helped me relive that fun. They were definitely the highlight of the night. The only   Read More …
