While I’m in the process of producing a full recap video about the entire weekend (stay tuned), I wanted to share what may have been my favourite 3 songs ever to shoot.   One of the world’s greatest bands regardless of genre took to the CBMF main stage to close out the festival in fine form.   The Zac Brown Band have been entertaining audiences with their brand of Country fusion for years and while I have taken in a dozen shows over the last 5 or 6 years I have not yet had the chance to photograph them.   On this hot July night, covered in red dirt, I had the chance to jump in the pit with only one other photographer (a rarity in this industry) and even better it was a friend that was experiencing the same shoot for the first time.  With 30,000 + fans to our backs and the incredible ZBB in front of us, and only 3 songs to capture what I hope will be shots of a lifetime, here are my favourite 10 shots from those first three songs.
