Photos from Reading and Leeds Festival

Pretty legendary festvial(s) I had never been to. Was nice to go. I went to the same date, twice. I was working for A Day To Remember, but I had a little bit of free time to photograph some other artists. I didn’t really have much access to the pit, I could only shoot from stage when other bands allowed me to. I had a blast! 8/22/2014 – Leeds, United …

ADTR One Off Shows, Music Video, and Self Help Festival Photos

One of the cool parts about working for ADTR this past year is that no matter what they do- I get to tag along. Including one day fly outs to Montreal, or Mesa Arizona… or wherever they decide to play some of these shows. Most of these shows are put on by the areas radio stations. Some are small, some are bigger, some are Chili Cook offs.  I don’t know …

Jeremy McKinnon Guest Vocals with Linkin Park Adventure

A few months ago I traveled with Jeremy, the vocalist for A Day To Remember to Los Angeles. He was invited to preform a special surprise set with Linkin Park. Well, Linkin Park was playing the surprise set, and Jeremy was invited to sing a song. I love that I get to travel alone with him to do special events like this. It means a lot that the band keeps …

Photos from The Alternative Press Music Awards

Well, I went to the Alternative Press Music Awards with A Day To Remember. I have only been to one awards show before, and it was the Golden Gods. The Golden Gods were honestly the worse thing I had ever been to (haha), and the APMAs were so much more fun. Maybe it’s because I literally knew everyone at the APMAs. It was everyone I had worked with over the …

Photos from Warped Tour 2014

I have done Warped Tour so many times. Well, a lot of times to me. I am going to go count the dates. About 136 days total. What the hell is wrong with me? No, but really – I love Warped Tour. I can’t do the whole thing anymore because it just doesn’t make sense, and I really don’t enjoy doing the same thing every day for a whole summer. …

Onstage Portraits – Warped Tour

This was my 6th or 7th year photographing and traveling on Warped Tour. I love it. It opened up more opportunities in my career than I can count. You can read about them–I think I have blogged just about every Warped Tour I have been on in my blog. Anyway, this year I was bored. It’s not that Warped Touring is boring–the shots were just not very challenging for me! …

Photos from Soundwave Festival 2014

Soundwave Festival. I love this fest. If you ask any band or any crew person, they will say this is their favorite festival tour. I did it last year with Of Mice & Men, and this year I was with A Day To Remember. It was a totally different experience this year which I enjoyed all the same. The way Soundwave works is you basically travel, live, and play with …

Radio Tour with A Day To Remember

Holy crap. I love these photos. Throw the same guys into different environments and together we can make some good images. My photography plays a significant role in making these photos, but the bands willingness to work with me to create them, is even more important. I am so happy I have made it to this point, with this band. It has taken years but I love what we are …
