Big Foot Mama, celebrating their 25th anniversary in a sold out Arena Stožice in Ljubljana, Slovenia

Big Foot Mama • Let 25

October 4, 2015

Arena Stožice, the biggest indoor arena in Slovenia, was SOLD OUT. Nobody, and I mean nobody – even the biggest fans, didn’t expect this to happen. It was Big Foot Mama’s 25th birthday and there was not a single ticket left. My phone was put on silent, as there was a ton of incoming calls from people I barely knew, who only wanted me to ‘hook them up’ with a free ticket.

I was lucky enough … No, I wasn’t lucky. I worked my ass off  for the last 3-4 years and earned a spot among 3 photographers to work on this huge project. It was an honor and an obligation at the same time. Usually, I’m excited about the gig that’s about to start, but this time – I was nervous. When the arena opened up and thousands of people started to fill this huge space, I started to realize that my photography goal – the bucket list – was completed. It was the beginning of the September, when I got the best birthday present – my photo featured in the Big Foot Mama’s Best Of album ’25’, and now, I’m standing in this huge arena with an AAA pass, waiting to shot the biggest rock band in Slovenia. Yeah, this is it!
