ConcertSocks (also known as Neil McElmon) has been pursuing adventure and capturing moments since first learning film photography in the late ‘90s. Switching to digital and attending Mount Royal University in the 2010 allowed him the medium to hone his signature style of bright, vibrant colours, low light, and large stage productions.

Best known for his work on the North American festival circuit, ConcertSocks has played key roles on media teams at mainstay Western Canadian events such as Shambhala, Bass Coast, Astral Harvest, FozzyFest, AEMCON, and Circle Carnival. His work has also brought him to international events such as Envision Music and Arts Festival and Bamboo Bass, where he has photographed many artists, stages, attendees, and unforgettable moments. Elevating himself to Media Coordinator at festivals such as Vibrant, Neil has amassed experience both behind the lens and from an organizer’s perspective.

Located in Calgary, Canada, ConcertSocks has established himself as a premiere Alberta photographer for many Shambhala and Bass Coast alumni, such as Fort Knox 5, The Funk Hunters, Smalltown DJs, Joanna Magik, and SkiiTour. During 2020 and 2021, he evolved his craft to take on graphic and video work for artists such as these to boost production value for “at home” Twitch live streams.
