22.09.2009. APOCALYPTICA Open for NIGHTWISH's Final Concert in Helsinki

17.09.2009. ShutterBLAST off to Helsinki, updates and next shows

2009 has been the busiest year ever, since we started to specialize in music photography.  


With NINE festivals covered this summer in Germany, Finland and Austria, several shows a week, many of which special abroad events such as Finnish Metal Expo in Helsinki, Eluveitie’s album release party in Zürich or Emilie Autumn’s show in Vienna, we are on the road almost every week. On top of being one of the most active event photographers in the Munich area, we are also being requested for promotional photography all over Europe (UK, Finland, Germany, Austria, etc). This explains why you may have noticed a lag between the date of an event and its anouncement on ShutterBLAST. Fear not, all the photos will eventually be uploaded, but we need to work on commissioned jobs first before we can work on free-lance projects. 

Thanks to all of you, the word is spreading and we are proud to see that we are now being recognized and requested all over the universe of heavy metal! 

So, what’s been cooking in the ShutterBLAST kitchen of late? Here you can see a list of the festivals that we’ve covered this year followed by a list of the live shows that will be available on ShutterBLAST soon.
