I guess what I'm best at is not shaving.
Music has always been something that can connect me to a different time and place. Whether that time and place be the present, past or future all depends on the music being heard. I think that's what has always drawn me to music. If I listen to The Smashing Pumpkins it reminds me of growing up in the suburbs and riding bikes of sweet jumps. Hearing Queens of the Stoneage takes me to the desert, sweating my ass off while waiting for the minivan to cool off.
I can't speak for everyone but I have a feeling I'm not the only one that music has this effect on. And I think that's one reason we enjoy music so much. It's like a photograph in our ears!
I enjoy seeing and hearing live music and I always jump at the opportunity to document a live performance. Live music only lasts for that moment and then it's lost to the cosmos for eternity. If we can capture a glimpse of what the artist created in that moment to share with others I think we've captured something special.
With so much good music being overlooked I want to share the undiscovered, as well as the Rock Stars, with people that may otherwise never get the chance to enjoy that creation.
I try to be take advantage of every opportunity presented to me. As long as no one dies it's always a win. Life is lived outside of the comfort zone so we gotta get uncomfortable. Work hard, say yes, experience new things.
I have been a photographer since way back in the college years. Back then it was all film and dark rooms. I hadn't taken photography very seriously until recently when I started to mix my love for music and photography to find something I really enjoy doing. I'm a fan before I'm a photographer, I love live music.
