Who: Joe Bonamassa
When: November 2, 2019
Where: Sony Centre for the Performing Arts, Toronto, ON
Joe Bonamassa has been featured on the cover of virtually every guitar magazine multiple times. His name is notorious among guitarists not only for being a virtuoso but also for his incredible collection of vintage guitars, gear and memorabilia (which he now calls the Bona-seum).
Almost every album Joe has produced instantly rockets to the #1 spot. His previous studio albums have even debuted on Billboard’s Top 10 album chart, proving that a Blues album could debut next to the biggest names in popular music.
Joe Bonamassa was found to be a genuine guitar prodigy before he was a teenager. He was featured on local news shows and playing in professional bands throughout school with members three times his age. He started opening for B.B. King.

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.
