Backstage Crew Portraits shot with the Profoto B1 AirTTL

I recently upgrade my studio light for the first time in… forever. Literally. I haven’t gotten a new studio light in a long time. Mostly because, well, I stopped using it. So why upgrade gear I wasn’t using? Recently, I got a Profoto B1 500 AirTTL Battery Powered flash. Easy, portable, effortless. Exactly what I needed. I have always been interested in shooting with studio lights, however I haven’t really …

European Festivals with A Day To Remember

This was the start of about few month run I did with A Day To Remember. I am happy with the images. I love natural light, I love adventures, and I love variety.

This Wild Life Photo Shoot

This shoot was random. I just hit up This Wild Life and asked to photograph them. They said yes, then we did the shoot. The first set of test images I shot with my friend Grayson at a studio in San Diego. We used the Light Blaster on most of the images.  We had no idea how to use it ahead of time, so we had to give ourselves a whole …

Tryin Something New

Photography has been a journey for me. An eight-year journey as of this year. Some years I try new things and learn a lot. Some years I continue what I enjoy and learn how to do it better. These past few years I have toured a lot. I want to get back into studio portraits, but I was bored. I feel like I’ve told this story 10 times now, but …

Photos From Lindsey Stirling – Shatter Me Tour

This is new. This is different. I’m okay with it. I had the best time ever. I didn’t know anything about Lindsey going into this. Okay thats kind of a lie. I didn’t know much about Lindsey before getting this gig–but by the time I showed up, I had done my research. However the amount I learned about her on the road blows any prior knowledge out of the park. …

Photos from Reading and Leeds Festival

Reading and Leeds Festivals are pretty legendary festivals I had never been to. It 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, so I could only shoot from stage when other bands allowed me to. I …

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. …
