Adam Elmakias (that is me) on Warped Tour + TEI workshop
11 Jun 2015 | 291 Comments

Warped Tour has played a huge role in my life–a bigger role than you may realize. I started as a fan and worked my way to being on tour as a photographer, but it took a lot of practice and hard lessons learned to get there. When I first started there wasn’t …

Photos of Diplo at Mysterland
10 Jun 2015 | 4 Comments

Sometimes you take a lot of pictures, and only get a few keepers. Acutally, that is usually how it works. Especially when I am still learning.  Well, I am always learning! But, how to photograph a DJ… I am still learning. Mad respect to RUKES. He …

I went out on All Time Low’s USA Future Hearts tour run for 5 days – 4 show days and one off day. All Time Low are some of the easiest people to tour with and I wish I could more. But this year I …

18 May 2015 | 106 Comments

KROQ hired me to photograph their annual Weenie Roast festival in Irvine, CA. I have never worked for a radio station before and I do have a lot to learn. But I tried to do what I *think* I do best and I hope they …

A Day To Remember Ocala Secret Show and Neck Deep in Studio
2 May 2015 | No Comments

A Day To Remember, probably the only people I know that will fly me across the country to come to their 200 capacity home show in the middle of nowhere (no offense) Ocala, Florida. The show was so secret I barely knew about it. I …

A Day To Remember at Alexandra Palace in London

Well, A Day To Remember played Alexandra Palace almost a year ago. It was and still is their largest headlining show they have ever played. It is a very historic building/ venue in London. We took a few photos outside the venue, and then a …

I had never met Skizzy Mars before this tour. The last time I did this… blind tour? What is a good term for it, I don’t know! But the last time I did it was with Lindsey Stirling- and it was a blast. So I …
