Best of 2015 Concert Photography on Stratophotography

Hi folks, another year down and a new one about to being! So with the year-end, comes year-end lists. This one is filled with shots from the Phoenix Concert Theatre, Timothy’s Pub, the Legendary Horseshoe Tavern, Nathan Philips Square, Grossman’s Tavern and many more pubs and venues in the Toronto area.

The selection criteria doesn’t rely on fame or popularity of the performer, but instead is dependent on how the image was captured. Lighting, emotion, enthusiasm, concentration,. visual traits that make an image pop and trigger ‘wow’ moments.

Here is a photo gallery post of my favourite images that I captured in 2015. Each performer can be searched for their respective photo gallery which reside’s in the deep dark tombs of’s photo vault.

Thank you to all the bands, performers, promoters, publicists, agents, venues, bouncers, festival coordinators, stage managers and most of all – the fans of live music photography for all the help and support in 2015. Couldn’t have done it without you,

thank you,
Michael Wiensczyk :

See you at the shows in 2016!
