Photographing Anti-Flag



Anti-Flag is a band that brings punk to the forefront of their concerts with epic air jumps and punk attitude. With political undertones in their music they do not shy away from sharing issues important to them. There style reminds me of great bands such as Rancid. I did not think anyone could jump as high as Chris Barker does. Give him a bass drum to stand on then you will see the epic air he gets while playing the bass. It’s crazy and awesome at the same time. They kept a strong energy in their performance and it was exciting to photograph them. It is a great band to see live , I was not disappointed in their show.
