St Paul and the Broken Bones, Alabama Theatre, Birmingham AL

  Link to full gallery of 42 images here. There’s something inherently special about seeing a band perform for their hometown, and even more so when their hometown also happens to be your hometown. But when that band’s popularity has skyrocketed since the release of their first full length album earlier in the year, Half […]

Jamestown Revival, Soul Kitchen, Mobile AL
Jamestown Revival, Soul Kitchen, Mobile AL

  Link to full gallery of 90+ images here. Easily one of my favorite finds of 2014, Jonathan Clay and Zach Chance have brought their band down to the gulf coast of Alabama three times this year and each time has been better than the last. Watching them evolve from the unknown opener for The […]

The Mowgli's, Iron City, Birmingham AL

  Link to full gallery of 30 images here. Ohhhh The Mowgli’s… The Mowgli’s is one of those bands that is just impossible not to love. In fact, I overheard a woman in the crowd saying just that to her friend. They’re one big happy family who radiate such joy and loving vibes as soon […]

Manchester Orchestra, Iron City, Birmingham AL

  Link to full gallery of 40+ images here. It’s a rare occurrence to have one of your actual dreams come true, but I honestly have dreamt about photographing a Manchester Orchestra concert before. The craziest thing about it is the real life version was even better than the dream. This past Thursday, I made […]

4th of July Fireworks, Independence Day, Gulf Shores AL

The fourth of July is notorious for a couple of things: beer, BBQ, ‘Merica, and of course, fireworks. This year my camera, tripod and I headed over to Gulf Shores with some family to catch the show on the beach. Pyrotechnics over water is always a fascinating sight and I had fun experimenting with the […]

Hangout Fest Sunday (Day 3), Gulf Shores AL

  Link to full gallery of 150+ images here. Finally. I know, I know. These images have been sitting on my computer partially edited for over a month and I just couldn’t bring myself to finish them. Part laziness, part busyness, and part just not wanting to admit that Hangout Fest 2014 is actually over, […]

Vance Joy, Soul Kitchen, Mobile AL
Vance Joy, Soul Kitchen, Mobile AL

  Link to full gallery of 29 images here. Well, evidently Vance Joy + 92ZEW free concert series = Mobile comes out in droves. From the time the doors opened at Soul Kitchen yesterday evening until the show ended just under 2 hours later, there was a consistently long line of people winding down the […]
