With bright white lights, relentless energy, and an endless stream of crowdsurfers, A Day To Remember's performance at The Bamboozle 2011 was one of the festival's highlights. Oh yes, and a human hamster ball.

You know, guys, just getting my Adam Elmakias on. Speaking of Adam, it was great to meet up with him over the weekend of Bamboozle and hang a bit in between the hustle of running between stages over the three days.
Adam actually texted me to give a heads up on for when Jeremy McKinnon went out in the hamster ball, which is why you see that last shot. I got the text just before the set started, so after exiting the pit, my brother Chris and I camped out in the crowd until the end of ADTR's last few songs. Shout out to Adam for the tip!
I'd never photographed ADTR in concert, so I was psyched to see what this band brought to the big stage of the Bamboozle.
While the telephoto range of the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 was incredibly useful for the taller festival stages and was generally my go-to lens, I found myself favoring the midrange 24-70mm f/2.8 for this set. A lot of this had to do with frontman Jeremy McKinnon and his big stage presence, which seemed to demand a wider field of view.
