Underoath in New Orleans | Music Photography | Jordan Hefler

The other day I got the opportunity to photograph Underoath for Stitched Sound in New Orleans (review linked here!)

For all you emo kids, you know that Underoath is LEGENDARY and has been a staple in the music scene for a long long time now. They were really big when I was in middle school, and after some ups and downs over the past decade, they’re finally back together and releasing new music.

It’s been a crazy, busy, STRESSFUL time for me lately and as cheesy as it sounds, this show was pretty much the highlight of my month. I’ve actually been listening to them nonstop since the show because the live performance was that good. Sometimes you go to a concert and it’s like an out of body experience- I’ve only been to a few shows like that and this was definitely one of them.

Here are my fave shots from the show below! SIDENOTE- as a photographer I always feel super guilty when I get too many shots of the singer. I try to be mindful of that when I’m shooting, but sometimes that’s just the way it goes. When you’re in the pit for only 3 songs you tend to gravitate towards the action, the way the lighting falls on the band members, the layout of their stage presence, and where you can maneuver yourself in the pit around the other photographers. I regret getting so many of Spencer and not getting more shots of the rest of the band. Sorry Underoath you’re all great!!

To Speak of Wolves / Promo Shoot by Jordan Hefler

YO! A while back I got to photograph the dudes in To Speak of Wolves, a hardcore band out of North Carolina that has some ties to Baton Rouge. They were in town and had just gotten signed to Solid State Records, so I took them to the weird field on the side of my then apartment complex and we made some magic. That sounds sketchy. But anyways, they are really great guys and I really enjoyed working with them. I love how our shots came out!

Side note- They're in the process of releasing a new album on the 21st of July, and you can pre-order it here. I strongly suggest you look them up and catch them in your city soon with He Is Legend, Islander, and Bad Seed Rising! I'll be at the Baton Rouge show snappin some pics, so come say hi!

Need promo shots for your band? Let's work together! Contact me here.
