Passion Pit at the LC Pavilion

Passion Pit at LC

When I saw some of the lighting before the show that Passion Pit would be using during their set at LC, I’d be lying if I said this one didn’t make me nervous. Having shot Passion Pit in November, I know how difficult Michael Angelakos can sometimes be to shoot because he’s constantly moving and [...]


The Hush Sound at A&R Music Bar

The Hush Sound at A&R

Anyone that went to this show got some serious value for their ticket. Five awesome performances in one night, headlined by The Hush Sound? I probably would’ve gone to this even if I wasn’t shooting! The Hush Sound brought in some heavy hitters to open for them, including Lucas Carpenter, Genevieve (from Company of Thieves), River [...]


2013 Nelsonville Music Festival: Wilco, Mavis Staples, Calexico, Sharon van Etten, Jonathan Richman, and Lucius

Wilco at the Nelsonville Music Festival

Out in the sticks of south-eastern Ohio, the scenic Hocking College  played home for the ninth annual Nelsonville Music Festival. Here are my photos from the main stage on Saturday. This was my first festival shoot, so I was preparing for the worst but hoping for the best. I stocked up on sun screen, bug [...]


The Avett Brothers at the LC Pavilion

The Avett Brothers at LC

  The Avett Brothers spent an intimate evening with their Columbus audience Saturday night. Well… as intimate as you can spend an evening with a sold out crowd of 4,000+ at LC. The folk rock group out of North Carolina put on a soulful and energetic performance for the packed house, warming the outdoor venue [...]


New Found Glory and Cartel at Newport Music Hall

New Found Glory at Newport

New Found Glory and the Sticks and Stones 10th Anniversary Tour rolled into the Newport for an excellent night of pop punk music. Cartel came along as an opener and got the night rolling properly. Both bands put on an awesome show for the Columbus crowd. On a personal note, this concert was an awesome throwback [...]


Bon Jovi at Nationwide Arena

Bon Jovi at Nationwide Arena

My Bon Jovi experience consisted of so much more than the typical 2-3 songs in the pit and leaving. I was one of five students selected to participate in the Bon Jovi Community Service College Campaign. Through this program, I and my four colleagues got to experience first hand all the things that go into [...]


Minus the Bear and Circa Survive at Newport Music Hall

Minus the Bear at Newport Music Hall

First things first, if there is one thing I’ve come to expect with shows at Newport, that would be less than fantastic lighting. After shooting so many shows there, I’ve learned how to adapt to that situation and still get some really nice shots that I’m proud of. I’m pleased to say that lack of [...]


Zoso at Newport Music Hall

Zoso at Newport Music Hall

The more concerts I shoot, the more impressed I get with the level of talent of all these musicians I’ve had the pleasure to be around. I used to perform on a regular basis, so I understand the commitment it takes to be at the top of your game night after night. And in this [...]


Who’s Bad at Newport Music Hall

Who's Bad at Newport Music Hall

Who’s Bad? certainly lives up to their title as “The Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute Band!” These guys are nothing short of astonishing. I never had the privilege of seeing Michael perform during his life, but Who’s Bad? has made certain that his music lives on through their shows. If Who’s Bad? ever make their way through your [...]


Woe, Is Me at The Basement

Woe, Is Me at The Basement

I did it! I survived my first metal show! My camera did, too! I’ve been spoiled over the last few months, shooting big venues with great lighting and a nice barrier between the crowd and the photo pit area. Shooting Woe, Is Me at The Basement was a surprisingly refreshing wakeup call. This was an [...]


Flogging Molly at the LC Pavilion

Flogging Molly at the LC Pavilion

First things first, this concert was easily the most fun I’ve ever had shooting a concert yet. The energy that Flogging Molly brings to the stage is incredibly infectious and everyone, including those of us working in the pit, was feeling it that night. Dave King is an absolute nutcase, and I say that with [...]


Sister Hazel at Newport Music Hall

Sister Hazel at Newport Music Hall

Talk about a blast from the past! To be perfectly honest, when I think of Sister Hazel I still think of the success of “All For You” in the last 90′s. However, I really enjoyed their performance, which consisted of a host of songs I had never heard before. I don’t usually get to stick [...]


Carrie Underwood at The Schottenstein Center

Carrie Underwood at The Schottenstein Center

So here’s the deal: the photography business is a really…interesting business. I’ve been doing this for about three and a half months, and I’ve already started to grow accustomed to the general strangeness of the way this industry works. Sometimes you do everything you can to position yourself in the best possible way for a [...]


Passion Pit at the LC Pavilion

Passion Pit at The LC Pavilion

Passion Pit rolled into Columbus in support of their latest album, Gossamer. They put on a fantastic, high energy show for their central Ohio fans. Hollerado and Youngblood Hawke pumped up the crowd with some aggressive alt rock. Passion Pit took to the stage, opening with their latest hit – “Take a Walk.” This is one of [...]


Rick Ross at The Schottenstein Center

Rick Ross at The Schottenstein Center

First things first, this concert was fun! The music was fantastic, the lighting was great, the crowd was feeling it, and I was too. Rick Ross, Wale, Meek Mill, and MGK kicked off the MMG tour with a booming concert at the Schott. MGK, the Ohio native, got the home crowd warmed up with his [...]


Brad Paisley at Nationwide Arena

Brad Paisley at Nationwide Arena

I had the amazing opportunity this Friday night to shoot Brad Paisley’s concert at Nationwide Arena, featuring The Band Perry and American Idol winner Scotty McCreery. I’m a HUGE Brad Paisley and country music fan, so words don’t really describe how I felt about this whole experience. I’m just so thankful for the opportunity and [...]


The National at Newport Music Hall

The National at Newport Music Hall

Having only listened to The National on YouTube once about two hours before the show, I had no idea what I was getting into with this concert. They really didn’t seem like my style, but who can turn down two songs in the pit and full-set access from the soundboard and elsewhere? Yet again, my [...]


The Raveonettes at A&R Music Bar

The Raveonettes at A&R

First things first, this concert was extremely dark. I was seriously worried about how these shots were going to turn out because it was so dark. Between those circumstances and the music of the evening, I decided to go all out on the black and white. I had to get a little creative in post-processing, but I’m [...]


Trace Adkins at the LC Pavilion

Trace Adkins

All I can say is “Wow!” I had the amazing opportunity to shoot the Trace Adkins concert presented by OUAB at The LC Pavilion here in Columbus. This was my first concert shoot so I was really nervous about changing lenses, settings, etc. all during just three songs. But, things worked out and I was able to get some great shots! [...]
