THE PHOTO’S STORY:
Canadian rock icon Bryan Adams has given thousands of live shows over the years – entertaining millions of fans around the world. But it was at a private show during 2009 in Toronto that I captured a truly special shot.
It’s no big secret that even the biggest names in the music biz can be hired for private functions. It was at such a function that I was assigned to shoot that Adams was to perform and close out the evening.
It was on his final number of the evening – Summer Of 69 – where the enthusiastic crowd rushed onto the stage to join Adams (much to the chagrin of the ONE security guard who was completely overwhelmed by the ladies). My shooting instincts told me, “just follow the fans on the stage and see what happens.”
