"Perhaps it is its perpetual ambivalence that is its secret charm. Somewhere between Preservation Hall and the Superdome, between voodoo and cybernetics, New Orleans listens eagerly to the seductive promises of the future but keeps at least one foot firmly planted in its history, and in the end, conforms, like an artist, not to the world but to its own inner being—ever mindful of its personal style." //Jitterbug Perfume (at New Orleans)
"Go placidly amidst the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence." - Desiderata (at New Orleans)
Gators and po’ boys, bone dancers and old oaks || blown away by how open the folks we’ve met in NoLa have been thus far, and looking forward to the next couple days of shooting with @elliotstudio @sierraquitiquit @bcwoodley and friends for @Royalrobbins #summer15
Heading South in search of summer with these two rascals and @elliotstudio. Anywhere/anyone in New Orleans we should incorporate into our mischief?
From one Horizon to the Next ||Thanks for the behind behind the scenes shot @elliotstudio
Despite the last gasp of winter we still managed to pull off the summer2k14 shoot for the good folks at @oliberte. So grateful to get to spend time working/playing/creating with talented friends @kesharis @elliotstudio @melboolittle #tradenotaid
Don’t be afraid to dance alone. #coachella ‘11
Open arms, open heart. One of the most engaging and loving stage presences I have ever had the pleasure to photograph. Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros @coachella ‘10
I don’t shoot as much live music as I would like to these days, but it has been an instrumental (ha!) part of my career and huge source of inspiration in my work. With festival season swinging into high gear it’s fun to look back through the archives - this one from @coachella ‘11 with the ever entertaining boys of Cage the Elephant.
Starting the day off right out at Rockaway (at Rockaway Beach - 69th Street)
