Aaron Mason Performance Photography at Viejas Casino
Aaron Mason, a guest on NBC’s The Voice, performed live with band Rising Star recently at the Dreamcatcher at Viejas Casino & Resort in east San Diego County. Aaron was also recently recorded on-air performing with Eric Idol for Mountain Country 107.9 FM.
The performance photography of Aaron at Viejas Casino began with capturing him and Rising Star’s rehearsal at Dreamcatcher. Checking lighting and the best camera positions to photograph his performance lasted the half hour rehearsal. Next up, the main concert with Rising Star. Aaron performed several songs wonderfully and the audience knew it. The dance floor was full as he and the band delivered great vocals and music.
The performance photography was captured from various angles about Dreamcatcher, with shots from around the dance floor and photography from the stage. Diverse shots, multiple cameras and lenses are important and were used in capturing Aaron and the band’s performance photography. It’s a style I use when photographing other events on stage and live, which you can see by visiting my San Diego Event Photography page. In fact, actively and properly capturing live performances requires almost as much energy as the performers put out. Then of course there’s the post-shoot editing of all the photos, and creation digital or print products, a step just as important as the initial performance photography
The photos in this gallery show a few of the final edited shots from Aaron’s performance. You can see also the complete gallery of all of the performance photography for Aaron (password required).
