Best of 2015


Best of 2015

…or should I say: ‘My favourites in 2015’ ?

It was a slow year concert wise for me, but I was still doing some other projects on the side not related to music photography, yet it was still photography or video. Being creative is what keeps me sane (and drives me insane at the same time).

So, lets get to the ‘best of / my personal favourites in 2015’… and also a quick throwback to all the stuff I did this year or still may do (since I already started writing this in November – yep, my new year resolution will probably be: get sh*t done by starting sooner.

JANUARY

Well, I didn’t shoot any gigs in January (few of those ‘post concert depression months’ this year)…. what a great start of this post 😉

FEBRUARY

Hope you don’t mind if I didn’t pick just one photo per month… I decided, since there were few months I didn’t shoot any concerts, I will post more favourites than just 12. In this case it will also be a throwback to all the gigs and bands I saw this year.

Convict @ Gala hala, Ljubljana, 15.7.2015 –> MORE PHOTOS

Something went wrong when shooting Convict (probably the mix of bad lights and my excitement to see Agnostic front next) so no favourite photo of Convict, since I don’t find any that is worth publishing again…it happens sometimes, but hopefully not ever again.

Metaldays 2015 road trip –> READ HERE

I only took a GoPro with me on the road with intention to film a short video. In the end, it was not really short and you can watch it below.

AUGUST

I must confess, I did shoot something in August buf forgot to blog about it… not good, I will improve. Anyway, I was invited to shoot a local festival in Ribnica, called Alternativa. This year was their 10th edition of the festival and they are getting bigger every year. You can see all the photos on their facebook HERE

And I got published twice in august … exciting! First my photos of Bliksem got published in Rock Tribune – a magazine from Belgium and then my photos of Alternativa got published in Ribnica local magazine called Rešeto. So happy for this opportunity and hopefully many more published photos in 2016.

SEPTEMBER

Had some plans – as you can see, they didn’t work out.

Finished the year with a bang – 2 gigs, filmed and edited 4 video interviews and photographed 7 bands.

You can see something changed at the end of the year – I finally got a proper logo for my photos! So happy! I wanted something like that for quite some time, but didn’t have knowledge how to DIY it, so thankfully I got it done by a designer which saved me a lot of time.

I have lots of wishes and plans for 2016 – main wish still remains to go on tour as a photographer, so if anyone needs a photographer while touring Europe – let me know! And I am also starting to fill my calendar with Slovenian gigs and dates and promo shoots – so don’t wait, e-mail me to info@anjaivanovic.com and we can work together.

At the end I would like to thank all the bands, all venues, and most importantly all the people who are responsible for bringing bands to Slovenia and who gave me the oppurtunity to shoot and grow with every gig! … and thanks to those who believe in me, even if I sometimes don’t believe in myself!
