Red Collar Soundcheck, Motorco, 05/19/12

Thanks to Red Collar and all the Tiny Engines bands at the show who allowed me to shoot some photos during soundcheck.

This is quickly becoming one of my favorite ways to shoot a band, particularly if it is before a big show.

20 Favorite Photos of 2011

This isn’t about my most techically perfect photos, or the most sale-able, or the most viewed. Those lists would all look very different. These are my favorite concert photos I took this year. It’s an interesting question for me because I shot more this year for other people or with the intent to cover a show in a more traditional press photo sense. But those photos aren’t here.
If I had to pick 20 photos to remember my year in concerts by, it would be these 20.
