I had the exciting opportunity last week to be part of something I’ve always wanted to photograph. I’ve been to dozens of festivals, but this was something totally different.
It was crazy, and I had a blast shooting it! Bassnectar rave in ATL with 10,000+ people.
DragonCon 2016 has come and past. What a great year! Always a pleasure to see so many friendly faces, and to catch up with people I dont get to see through the year.
As usual, I photographed all late night material. Pretty much every picture I took happened sometime between 10pm and 5am. There was so much great music!! Got to see Here Come The Mummies again this year. And had a last min surprise too… Shooter Jennings played con. How awesome is that? It was difficult because Shooter played the same time Voltaire played. Yeah I was running around like crazy trying to photograph two great musicians in two different building at the same time.
In the end we had a great time and I took a lot of photos! It’s tough narrowing down my favorites but here’s a stab in the dark at the ones I think came out the best. To see the full gallery, they’re posted HERE. Feel free to download and post whatever you’d like for non-commercial use.
It’s that time of year again! DragonCon is upon us. Last year had a fine line up of musicians and performances. One of those was from Here Come The Mummies. I’m looking forward to seeing these guy perform again and the opportunity to shoot the show.
Hump Day. Climbing the proverbial hill. Once you get to a point you’re able to look back at the difficult part of your week/life and sigh with relief that you made it this far.
Here’s a “Soulful” performance from the amazingly talented Will Kimbrough and special guitar solo from Luther Wamble
Had the opportunity to sit down with several amazing actors here in Atlanta for a table read of a very interesting script. Of course, because of the NDA, I can’t share with you any other info BUT I can tell you it was awesome! Keep an eye out for these faces, there was some killer talent at this table.
With the beauty that is the Sony a7rii and its completely silent shutter I was able to snap photos and not interrupt anything with the sound of shutter clicks.
Paul Kantner recently passed away. On Jan 28, 2016 another legend joined the Elysian Fields. He was an American guitarist, singer, songwriter, & rock legend. He was known for co-founding Jefferson Airplane in 1965, and were headliners at the three most famous American rock festivals of the 1960s—Monterey (1967), Woodstock (1969) and Altamont (1969). Their 1967 break-out record Surrealistic Pillow ranks on the short list of most significant recordings of the “Summer of Love“. Two songs from that album, “Somebody to Love” and “White Rabbit“, are among Rolling Stone’s “500 Greatest Songs of All Time.” Jefferson Airplane was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996. ~wiki
It just came to mind… I’ve photographed him before.
