Astronmer, and a major bummer

So the band Amenra, who are crazy good and from Belgium, were supposed to play tonight in Boston. Something happened to the PA after the first band which shut the show down and word was it was being moved across town. Unfortunately there were still 4 bands left to play, and it was already 9 pm. getting 4 bands across town, the hour-ish trip out to the other venue, and the 30ish dollar cab ride that would have ensued after the show ended were enough to force me to call it an early night. Sad story. Support this band if they come near you, as they are pretty incredible.

I did however manage to shoot the first band, Astronomer, some younger guys from Boston who are playing some solid Cult of Luna-meets-Will Haven style jams. Probably one to keep an eye on.

The venue was Church, so there were red lights aplenty.

Tombs, Boston, Office Photography

I recently shot the band tombs, on relapse records.



Also, the band Have Heart, on Bridge9 records is currently using a photo from their record release for a poster advertising their impending east and west coast tour.



It was remarkably warm in Boston the past two days, so I went out and shot for a while.





On a more professional note, here are a couple of photos done for the Sheraton Hotel and Grandover Resort in Greensboro, NC.

walking around boston, shows, and george!

so the the biggest news if that i updated my camera. gone is my baby the d80 in exchange for it's tougher, cooler, older brother, the d90. the amount of features handed down from the professional grade nikons that find a home in this camera make it too good to pass on, and so much more approachable than the 2k, 4k, or 7k pro models. one day though.

here's george playing!

Bummer City Portraits

Coming soon: a 48 page collection of portraits I've taken over the past year. It will be a PDF magazine, free to download, and possibly available to purchase in high quality printed format. I'm working on that last part.
