My Photography of Solstates tour of India - October 2009

I went on tour with Solstate to cover their Great India Rock Fest tour. 3 Cities in 3 days, including miscellaneous gigs and other malarkey.
We traveled To Mumbai, Pune, Delhi and Bangalore on a hella tight schedule that consisted of 4 am wakes, 5 am flights, 22 bits of equipment, 35 degree sound checks, all the mango lassies you could ever want and 3 packed out India rock fests. Im cutting a documentary from the footage I shot with the canon 7d. It was all a bit crazy field testing my new canon 7d without knowing how it would preform. It blew my mind about as much as India did. Not to mention 2 days before we flew I had a bike vs car accident and partially tore my right shoulder ligament. Doped up on codeine and delirious from jet lag, i think i manged to get some good shots.
There will be a documentary to follow.

I can only mirror whats being said bro. Nice compositions, very professional work. My personal fav has to be the foodcourt one.. facking nice shot there. The misty background is pure magic... too bad its probably pollution :(

Cheers for the comments. That was a like a foodplaza/truckstop.. so it was dust, but in the mumbai shot, the horizon practically whites out. I dont think i saw one cloud in India, just mist and haze. I rec my fav is the Pic of Zorran, or the motorcyclist looking back, i felt his pain in that traffic... lol
