Welcome

Welcome to METALSHOTS, a photosite with impressions of all kind of Metalmeetings all over Europe, but most of them in Holland. The reason why we started this website is because we travel to festivals and gigs all over Europe and we love taking pictures. Friends and people we met kept asking us to send them over. Sending pictures took a lot of our time so we decided to put them online so everyone can see our shots and download the photos with your friends. What started as a small site for friends grew into a very pupulair site with millions of hits per month known by Metals all over Europe. So we keep travelling and shooting, we keep buying better equipment, we keep doubling our bandwidth. So this site is dedicated to our metal-friends. Band pictures are everywhere, right? That's why we don't just shoot the bands on stage, we want to capture everything. Backstage rockstars not wearing their evil makeup are interesting but not nearly as cool as the crowds on the field, your wild campsite parties, your crazy portraits. After all, what would the metal scene be without the fans? And we are proud to be part of it all. If you have some suggestions or comments just write us: info@metalshots.com
