Big Wreck is a Canadian-American rock band formed by Ian Thornley. Beyond the impact of their recordings, Big Wreck retains a legacy of an exceptional touring band who deliver on stage true to all the great rock legend and lore. The band’s latest album Grace Street was released on February 3rd, 2017.
Opening the night was Ascot Royals. They put into songs the notion that with everyday life comes everyday struggle, and rising to that occasion may be the essence of life itself. The music reflects the awareness of living in those moments, but also a sense of forging ahead and looking to the future.

I shoot live music performances and concerts. I love the excitement of entering a venue, knowing that I’ll be photographing a concert and enjoying the energy of the crowd. There’s nothing like being in a venue and looking at the expressions on the faces of people who are all transfixed by the talent onstage. I shoot about 120 shows each year, averaging 2 bands per show, as well as several all-day and weekend festivals in and around Southern Ontario. From the large venues to very small ones, bright lights or barely lit stages, I hope that my photos capture the enjoyment the artists have in doing what they love to do.
