HOLD ON PAIN ENDS TOUR :: VANNA

HOLD ON PAIN ENDS TOUR :: VANNA

I first photographed Vanna on the 2014 Vans Warped Tour a few times last summer. I vibe with their live presence because it's so out of this world. I had been wanting to work on a project with them for a while so this tour was the perfect opportunity!

Graceland Cemetery

Graceland Cemetery

Graceland Cemetery sits comfortably in north Chicagoland. I've been wanting to go since I moved here in 2010 but never found the time. My roommate and I were itching to wander around and photograph something yesterday (April 10th) and it clicked! Graceland, here we come.

CIRCA SURVIVE + BALANCE AND COMPOSURE

CIRCA SURVIVE + BALANCE AND COMPOSURE

Being off tour is refreshing in a lot of ways. The main being it gives me the okay to really think outside of my normal routine and photograph some artists I rarely get to see. Balance and Composure and Circa Survive are two of my favorite artists to photograph and watch perform. When I saw they were playing a show while I was going to be home and able to catch it, I immediately planned out the night of photographing and picked up some new goodies to shoot with. I was really excited to see the end result of the images.

MAN OVERBOARD :: CHICAGO, IL

MAN OVERBOARD :: CHICAGO, IL

Off time is boring. I guess I'm technically never really "off" being freelance but being home from tour drives me nuts. I was so excited to see that Man Overboard was going to be playing in Chicago while I was home. I've photographed them so much and it's always good vibes. We had a shoot in the spring of 2013 for Highlight Magazine and I hadn't seen them since the fall of 2013. I headed off to Concord to photograph their set tonight (March 26th)! Here are some of my favorites.

THE WORLD TOUR :: PIERCE THE VEIL

THE WORLD TOUR :: PIERCE THE VEIL

When the opportunity to finish the World Tour with Pierce the Veil came about, I was really excited because I had heard so many incredible things about the guys. I had the best feeling in my gut about it and I was right. The month I spent documenting their life on the road was one of the most insightful months I've experienced as a photographer.

THE WORLD TOUR :: PVRIS

THE WORLD TOUR :: PVRIS

I did my first two tours with PVRIS and it had been nearly a year since our last tour together. When I was asked to come out on the World Tour with them from 1/23 - 2/6 I was beyond excited. Their new album, WHITE NOISE, is one of the best... if not the best, albums that came out in 2014. I was excited to photograph their style again!

THE JOURNEYS NOISE TOUR :: ISSUES

THE JOURNEYS NOISE TOUR :: ISSUES

I had been a fan of photographing ISSUES up until 2014 Warped Tour when I finally worked face to face with the guys and clicked with them instantly. They are all so unique and their music is so catchy, how can you resist? After a long five weeks on Warped Tour photographing them near daily, I was asked to come out on their headlining tour.

EMAROSA FALL TOUR

EMAROSA FALL TOUR

I had just gotten off The Parks and Dev tour, hung out in Universal Studios, drank way too many Harry Potter related beverages, stared at Hogwarts and then flew to Vegas to meet up with Emarosa for a two week stint with them before I headed off to my next tour.

The Emarosa guys are some of the most genuine and creative I've ever met. I don't know any artists that I work better with. Their album, Versus (2014), is one of my all time favorites. I was really excited to hang out and do what I love simply for fun for some time. The end result of this run contained my favorite images that I've ever produced. Happy to share them with you all.

CRAIG OWENS TEXAS ACOUSTIC TOUR

CRAIG OWENS TEXAS ACOUSTIC TOUR

When Craig asked me about doing his acoustic run, how could I say no? The plans were set, flight was booked and I was ready for one of the funnest weeks ever. I left Warped Tour and flew out to Texas the morning July 15th. I was so thrown off. Warped Tour is like... straight isolation. I had forgotten what the real world was like. Starbucks? What? What's coffee? Um? Normal human beings? Where was I?

2014 VANS WARPED TOUR :: FAVORITE SHOTS

2014 VANS WARPED TOUR :: FAVORITE SHOTS

The summer of 2013 I did a few day stint of The Vans Warped Tour with Chiodos. This year I did five weeks freelance and it was one of the best experience of my life. Hands down! Warped Tour truly is summer camp. It's eye candy for a photographer because everywhere you look - there's a photo op.

THE DEVIL'S DANCE TOUR :: CHIODOS

It's really weird switching my website over to this new format and adding all of these blogs. I decided to start with the Devil's Dance Tour because that was my first large scale full US tour. Below you find the full US tour routing and all of my favorite photos from this tour.
