Event photography in Almaty, Kazakhstan – Godskitchen music event.
The commission was to photograph the music event to provide documentary and reportage coverage throughout the event, capturing natural reactions, crowd, atmosphere, production and artists. The venue was a ballroom, quite unusual for a dance music event, but made for a unique intimate atmosphere.
This was my first time to Kazakhstan and I wasn’t too sure what to expect. My only reference was the movie Borat! To my pleasant surprise Almaty is very different to the movie, quite an affluent area with beautiful countryside and snow capped mountains.
Here are a few of the event photos:
