    Some of the most spectacular shots I’ve seen yet. And I’ve seen and embarassingly large number or tour photos and videos from GlamNation.

    Great work and thank you !!!

  34. SusanP says:

    I have followed the GlamNation Tour on line since it started, and have made it to 10 of the shows, and these are by far the most amazing pictures I’ve seen in the entire 3 months. Just incredible, really. Thank you for sharing them with us.

  35. PK says:

    Beautiful pictures! I was at this concert and these pictures are a gorgeous reminder of one of the best shows I have ever been to. I especially love the Adam & Tommy picture!!! 🙂

    Keep up the great work!

  37. Debbie says:

    Just wanted to add:

    Thank you so much for posting the picture of Adam and Tommy kissing. Adam is a class act and so are you for capturing that awesome and always epic moment. Like most fans, I love watching Adam do anything remotely sexual.

    Again, if you have more, please post.

  38. cherch says:

    Fantastic pics!! Great job!!

  39. bluedog says:

    You’ve caught the flavour of an Adam concert perfectly… you have an artist’s instinct for ‘the moment’! So good! Thank you!

  40. Lynne says:

    What wonderful photos! You are really talented and captured the feel of this concert. Thanks!

  41. Kris says:

    Wow! These concert photos are amazing! I just looked through your whole blog and I love your work. Really great quality! I am glad it was you that covered this concert!

  42. Lissy says:

    Wow your shots are so vivid! I don’t think I can even pick a fave, they’re all srsly gorg. Altho I am sad that Adam’s management hasn’t bucked the norm of allowing photos for only the first few songs, would have loved to have seen your shots of Adam in his different outfits later in the show. The songs where he wears that long gauzy coat that billows when he walks, or the hilariously awesome ringmaster jacket with a pimp cane, or especially the sleeveless vest! *sigh* I bet your shots of those would have been epic!

  43. Terese says:

    Thank you for these gorgeous photos

  44. haley says:

    AMAZING pics…adam is a very beautiful person. actually the whole group of em are HOT!!

  45. Mari says:

    Thanks for the amazing pics!! Do you have pics of Allison Iraheta as well? She was the opening act.

  46. Gina says:

    Your photos are beautiful, they have a special quality.

    Thanks for sharing them! You are very talented.

  47. James23 says:

    Amazing photos! Lambert is one hell of a performer.

  48. randomom says:

    Thank you for so generously sharing your beautiful photos, you’ve definitely captured some of the magic of Adam and his amazing show!

  49. KarenB says:

    Great work! It’s lovely to see some professional photos of this sumptuous visual feast called The Glam Nation Tour. Thank you for sharing it with those of us who cannot be there and for including pics of the audience. They are the essential ingredient without which the magic would not be possible. Adam Lambert ROCKS!!!

  50. SUMMER says:

    WOW.AMAZING PICS..Thanks so much for sharing these. They are Stunning!! You are very talented and you captured so much emotion in these. What camera are you using, if you don’t mind me asking? I was there and it was my last show of 4. To my surprise they let us up to the front stage to fill the empty orchastra area..that was AWESOME!! I knew we would get an ELECTRIFYED ADAM when he heard the LOVE from the fans before the show..we were going NUTS!! Adam came out ON FIRE,PLAYFUL, FIESTY,SEXXXXXXXY, FUNNNNN!!! I was so close to his beautiful Eyes and Face, his glitter was flying off on me!! YEAHH!! I wanted to enjoy my last show without the camera, so I put it away after Soaked. Really, thank you for these and if you have more, please post. I am having “ADAM WITHDRAWS” really bad today, knowing I will not see him live until next year. Pics and Vids are all we have to stay close to this extraordinary human (is he?) being.xo

  51. Caroline says:

    Holy Mother, these are some of the best pics EVER!! You ROCK!

  52. Michael says:

    Awesome photos…what a great eye and perspective you have! 🙂

  53. Bren says:

    These are absolutely perfection, James.
    Thank you so much for including the fans in your perspective! So many photographers forget us and all of their images are of the performance, which is fantastic! BUT, how totally cool to see the fan reaction!

    These need to be made available for retail, they are that good!
    I have a few things on the burner, so if you are interested, contact me. I’m happy to give you promo on my new website for Adam.
    Wings on ya, these are awesome!
    Ciao
    Bren

  54. Random Guy says:

    I don’t know what to add other than what has already been written. CanAdam get any better? The answer, obviously is YES! So talented, so beautiful, so hot. mmmmmmm. The guy’s (Tommy, Monte and ALL the rest) are amazing and beautiful and talented. Adam’s choices are unquestionable!

  55. Mary S says:

    Your Glamnation Pics are absolutely the best I’ve ever seen. And I’ve seen ALL OF THEM!! Brilliant color, amazing clarity, perfect shots. You captured the essence of the tour. You deserve an award, James!!

  56. Ria says:

    Awesome .. awesome pictures. Thank you!

  57. Theresa says:

    That was the best concert I have ever been too. These pictures are fantastic. thank you so much for taking them and letting us see them.

  58. Mary Jo says:

    Unbelievably good pictures. They really capture the spirit of the night! Thank you so much for sharing.

  59. Lena says:

    These pictures are so damned gorgeous! Can I say damn? Damn, damn, damn they are beautiful!

  60. LJ says:

    *Sigh*

  61. Bruce Kingsley says:

    These are really fantastic candid shots. You can see the absolute joy on the fans faces. A lot of photographers take just the subject but not those viewing the subject. Kudos for taking pictures of the audience. The absolute joy on the subjects faces are a brilliant shot. Lambert’s costumes as well as his dancers and band are a feast for the eyes. But you managed to translate it so that those who did not attend can at least get a glimpse.

    The kiss…….the famous kiss. This kiss when it first happened (The AMA’s) actually made headlines around the globe. In the US for shock and around the world for shock that the US was so shocked lol!.

  62. Circe says:

    Breathtaking photos: fantastic interplay of light.

  63. A.M. says:

    Absolutely awesome photos! Love every single picture! Great Job!

  64. Carol Hill says:

    Nancy and I were in the last row at the Peoria performance. The concert was even more than we expected. Adam sounds better live than on CD. Adam Lambert is a singer and performer who will blossom and grow into the most revered, loved and admired artist we know. Love, Carol

    P.S, Super photographer. Thank you for beautiful memories.

  65. Amy Jones says:

    oh my gosh, thank you so much!

  66. Jean says:

    Stunning!

  67. Emily says:

    OMG.. He is GLAMAZING!! Thanks for the awsome photos! 🙂
