    Default The Best Photos of Coachella 2013 (That You Did Not Take)

    This is where I post photographs that I did not take, but wish I took.

    As a sometimes professional concert photographer, I find it especially interesting to see the way that other people choose to document their Coachella experience. Poring over the thousands upon thousands of photos that get posted after the event is always one of my favorite parts of the post-festival period. In this thread, I am going to post a few of my favorites. I invite you to join and post your own picks if you see a photo out there that you feel does a particularly excellent job of capturing the moment. PLEASE DO NOT POST PHOTOS THAT YOU TOOK. This thread is about celebrating the terrific photography work that other people are doing. There are other threads for posting your own photos.

    Please fully credit the photographer and source for all work so we can give these folks their due.




    And, for archival purposes:
    This is the 2012 thread.
    This is the 2011 thread.

    I saw you, Chris, heading in to the Rodriguez debacle. I would have said hi, but you were focused. I did not want to divert you from your objective.

    We will see. I am very picky. There are only even a small handful of photos from the LA Times that i think are good. (And I probably wouldn't put ANY of my photos in here.)

    All four photos above are from the Coachella Facebook page. The photographer was unattributed.

    According to Courtney's picture selections, Coachella 2013 was much more about the crowds than the artists. Even the bro-tards make the honor roll.

    Tom, I think that's mostly an artifact of the photography conditions at the festival. Stages are harshly lit or backlit with the sun during the day, and at night all of the performers may not be lit well enough to capture a completely sharp photo depending on gear (and especially if photographers have to walk around all day, they are not going to want to carry the 30+ lbs of gear necessary to capture crisp, dimly lit distance shots). I'm also pretty pick about depth of focus and whatnot with photos, so that limits things.

    But yes, I do to a certain extent believe that the crowds make the festival more than just the artists alone.

    Oh wow, another picture of Karen O with a mic in her mouth. Haven't seen that 8000 fucking times, you goddamn unoriginal camera jockey fuck.

    Also your pictures are boring. I'm so tired of seeing closeups of the performers. Who gives a shit. Those could be from any concert ever.

    Also, the reason that I did not choose your Karen O photo is because the left hand is out of focus which I think makes it inferior to many of the the other Karen O photos out there.

    This year was very different for picture taking for myself and some of the other people who get to take pictures for Goldenvoice. Normally we worked for who we worked with and never really interacted with each other beyond the photo pits. This year we were all part of the same team and it was a pleasure to get know and learn from some really great photographers. One of them is kind of a concert photography legend. His name is Denis O' Regan and he nailed this picture of Flea during Weekend 2:

    That is amazing. Also, Flea is looking a lot like Ron Perlman these days.
