wye oak + the californian + circle and line @ troubadour – 2.23.12

at the end of 2011, my external drive crashed and i bought a house to remodel. nearly six months later, i am just now getting around to updating my blog.

and while i lost most of the images that i shot in 2011, i am back with stuff from 2012 – and saving everything in multiple locations!

wye oak at the troubadour was one of the first shows i shot in 2012. it was quite magical and reminded me that i really missed shooting live music.

where have i been?! late 2010 to march 2011…


the duke spirit_roxy_12.30.10_10.jpg

in an effort to focus less on live music and more on portraiture, i promised myself that i would stop all the blogging and live show photos, and concentrate more on intimate photo session with musicians, people, kids, and pets. but without the blog to help me “chronicle” where i’ve been, i am at a loss as to WHERE I HAVE BEEN. i found out the hard way that i actually NEED this space to help me document what i do.

thus, i plan to continue to update this blog for my personal projects – my footprints in the sand, so to speak. it may include music, portraits, life, etc.

and so it unfolds…

the ABOVE photo was from my last live show of 2010 – the duke spirit with crash kings @ the roxy. such a great “last show” of the decade. and i even got to hang in the dj booth. review and gallery on BUZZBANDS.LA and PHOTO LINK!
