Over the past few years I have not been shooting live music photography and it's been killing my soul.
Since I do not currently shoot for a media outlet, I was unable to acquire a photo pass to the recent Umphrey's McGee shows in Orlando and St. Petersburg. The shows were amazing nonetheless and my hands were free for air guitarring, air drumming, and beer drinking. But Umphrey's McGee is one of my favorite bands to shoot with the amazing lighting provided by Lighting Designer Jefferson Waful and I had no images from the shows. So after those shows I set out to make a change. I reached out to a few different outlets; some small and some big. From here on out, I do not want to miss the opportunity to make images of amazing music.
