Countdown is a festival I've been wanting to shoot for some time now and I got the opportunity to do so. Couldn't of had a better way to close out 2015. Shooting during the ball drop was amazing and I seriously couldn't be more excited for 2016 and the things that are in store. Hope everyone had a fun and safe New Years! Here is two sets I covered that night.
Minnesota B2B G-JONES
Create Nightclub has become one of my favorite clubs to shoot in LA. This time around I had the opportunity to work with Grandtheft. Check out his music and his new EP that he just released. Overall a great night besides losing my phone at then end. Here is what I created over all the chaos. Comment below and let me know what you think or give it a heart.
It's always a pleasure working with Snake. He absolutely killed it as usual. If you haven't checked out his music please use this chance and give it a listen. Here is the chaos I managed to captured during his set it at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium.
TBD Festival was definitely worth going to and I am grateful for the fact that I had the privilege to cover it. Every band/artist who performed at the event absolutely killed it during their sets. If you missed it this year, then it's a must you attend the one in 2015! Here are some highlight shots from the three day festival. Enjoy!
This past June I had the privilege to go on tour with some of my best friends in Incredible' Me. It was some of the best times I've had in my life. We have always talked about me going on tour with them and covering their experience. I finally was able to put everything aside and join their tour. Along the tour I ended up becoming great friends with the other bands really fast and shooting some photos for them as well. Everyone was super rad to hang with every night. I can't wait to go back on the road!
Check out all the bands that were on the tour package.
I've been working with a magazine called Unplugged for a little over a year now. They are based in Sacramento, California with the focus of covering music. Each issue Unplugged finds one band that hasn't been heard of and presents them a chance to be on the cover and a story inside about them as well as a Q&A section. I really like the fact that they work hard to find great bands to feature in each of the issues. It always gives me a new band to listen too which is a plus. The magazines have plenty of interesting articles to read. So if you're into reading magazines and you love music, definitely check them out.
Also, big thanks to Steven for letting me be apart of the team and providing great opportunities!

Here are a few covers I shot for them over the past year. Just click on anyone you want and it'll direct you to the issue you chose.
The shoot with Alegion was by far one of the most interesting I have done. The location that we shot at had a huge old conveyer belt that I scouted a few months prior. Unfortunately it was getting torn down when we showed up but it gave it a completely different look than I planned. The shoot got weird really quick. There were two workers there who could barely speak english that were cutting huge pieces of metal with huge industrial blow torches. Then a security guard came along and I expected him to ask us to leave but he ended up being super cool and watched after us during the shoot. He was totally fine with us shooting there and he even offered us props to use. The location was pretty gross in general because before they started terring things down it was a home to a lot of homeless people. There was tons of hyperdermic needles everywhere and the list goes on with nasty things. I felt like i needed to burn my shoes after the shoot. Overall it was a fun shoot and the clouds and sunset worked in my favor during the shoot which I was really happy about.
Go check out the band, they have new music coming soon!
