I love the fall in Nashville, we wake up to some amazing fog some mornings and it immediately turns me from a night owl to a morning person! When you get Seattle in your backyard you make photographs.Read More
Music photography has and always will be my favorite thing to photograph. It truly is a test of ones problem solving skills to adapt to new lighting scenarios with each different act. The colors and effects that stage lighting creates are my most favorite to work with and I still get excited to see what I can come up with. It had been a long while since I have photographed music so I have been really excited to start shooting it again. Here are a few snaps from Marathon Music Works featuring Bonobo and Jungle.
At 1 am last night I was laying in bed, reflecting on turning yet one year older. I have so much to be greatful for and yet looking back over the past 9 years that are my 20s, I cannot help but marvel at all of the changes that happen to us during this decade of our lives. I moved countless times, living in California, Texas, Washington and Tennessee. I sang in a band and learned how to play drums for another. I picked up my first digital camera, worked a number of jobs, went to school (something I never thought I'd do) and most recently married my beautiful wife Amanda.
The one thought this night however keeping me up has been that the one thing I regret most is not being better to those around me. I have wanted to "be" a hundred different things this past 9 years, but when it comes down to it, today what I realize is that what I want to be remembered for when all is said and done is not what I did, or what I created. The legacy I want remembered is how I treated others in my life. I have met some of the most incredible and talented, caring people. I live in a place packed with them, and I can't help but feeling I haven't been the best to those in my life past or present. I won't go into it deeply, but I feel at times I am very selfish. In speak and action I often make my interactions about me, and I am certain I have pile driven a number of potentially amazing friendships due to it. So as I move into this last year of being "young" I am making it a goal to be more intentional, to love genuinely and to pursue those I care about with a heart of service and compassion. I want to be more present and I will pursue the community around me actively with a heart that is good. So here's to 29. I couldn't be more excited!
