Loon Lake ‘The Final Wave’ Tour 2015

A few weeks ago I was invited to photograph Loon Lake’s farewell gig at the Corner Hotel for their ‘Final Wave’ tour. It was a crazy night filled with crowd surfing, confetti, balloons, booze – and even a wedding proposal between two fans! It was a really special night that I had the opportunity to capture – here are some of my favourite shots from the gig.

And throughout all that I also started a Pet …

The Corner Hotel has always been one of my favourite Melbourne venues, so I wasn’t going to miss the chance to go to nearly every show.
