Last weekend was a very good one, and a very demanding one as well… I was the official (and only) photographer for FOK! (www.fok.nl) at the Lowlands festival so I went to as many bands as I could manage to shoot three songs frontstage, then leave for the next one.. Or to get a drink, because especially Friday and Saturday were sunny and hot!
Some guys were also on assignment from FOK! to write reviews and hold interviews. The first review is online already (in Dutch), accompanied by some of my photos, at http://frontpage.fok.nl/review/401635/1/1/50/lowlands-2010.html
Another festival report in pictures, this time it was for Festivalinfo.nl:
A very nice festival on the three different stages at the 013 concert hall in Tilburg, The Netherlands. The festival was called Vlaamse Reuzen Hollandse Leeuwen (Flemish giants, Dutch lions) and featured only Dutch and Belgian (Flemish) acts. http://www.festivalinfo.nl/review_images.php?review_id=1361
The Giro d’Italia pro cycling race was in the Netherlands and on the 2nd day (1st real stage after the prologue) I went to take pictures and see the race. It really is over before you know it. I went to Veenendaal and then by train to Utrecht which made it possible to intercept the race twice. The result is on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/whaley/tags/giroditalia/show/
Some of my photos were posted on the big Dutch community site fok.nl (FOK!). I’ve covered some events for them already, and at this year’s liberation day festivals there were one or more photographers present at all the official festivals (each province hosts an official event!). For Limburg, Serena Cloodt (www.throughmylens.nl) was accredited through FOK! and I went to Roermond as well to cover the opening with our prime minister Jan-Peter Balkenende lighting the symbolic torch next to the main stage.
