Photographer Ben Wrigley Wins Big With Parkway Drive Shot

 

Massive congratulations to Ben Wrigley (Third Eye Visuals) for winning the June Moshcam Photography Award with his epic shot of Parkway Drive tearing up Penrith Panther’s Club. Ben’s work wins him a $100 voucher from RGB Digital printing.

Ben had only been shooting photos for a year before the renowned metalcore band asked him to document their Australian Ire Tour.

“I took a photograph of the band at the Live it Up festival – which they shared on social media – and it went on to become their most liked photograph on Facebook.  So I swung them an email and was like, ‘Hey let me come tour with you guys, cause I guess your fans really enjoy my work and I think I can capture your show pretty well.’  They said yes, so I did the Australian Ire Tour and we’ve been mates ever since.”
