American Authors, House of Blues Parish Room, New Orleans

  Link to full gallery of images here. I had the great fortune and pleasure to photograph American Authors as they kicked off their tour this week at the House of Blues Parish Room in NOLA. You’ve undoubtedly heard their hit “Best Day of My Life” on the radio, and it appears that every day […]

Magic Man & Sleeper/Agent, Rock Bottom, Montgomery AL

New Politics (whose photos I blogged here) had two openers for their show, Magic Man and Sleeper/Agent. Having seen both of their acts the night before I knew I was in for a great show from start to finish so I decided to shoot a bit of both of their sets as well. First up […]

WARNING: Long post ahead. See I’d normally post my favorite 8 or 10 photos and then a link for you to view the full album elsewhere, but my non-pet photo website is undergoing a bit of a transition right now so I currently have nowhere else to direct you to that isn’t covered in puppy […]

Twenty | One | Pilots, 12th and Porter, Nashville TN

One thing I’ve found to be true time and time again is if you follow good music, it leads you to more good music. Case in point: I’ve been a fan of New Politics for many years. They spent this past spring on tour opening for Twenty One Pilots, and this was definitely a case […]

New Politics, 12th and Porter, Nashville TN

I thought it only appropriate to start this blog off with one of my favorite live acts of all time and a big reason why I’ve fallen in love with concert photography: New Politics. Take a breakdancing lead singer from Denmark whose biggest struggle during a show is staying on the stage, add another vocalizing […]
