Earlier this year I was hired by Proclaim FM to cover a concert they were hosting at their event center. It just so happened that 2 of the 3 artists performing that night were some friends of mine, Everfound and JJ Heller. I had the privilege of touring with them a couple of years ago from my time out on the road with Sanctus Real. It was great to catch up with all of them and to have the opportunity to capture these images.
Photographing Pearl Jam in concert. Check that one off the bucket list. There is nothing quite like being just a few feet away from a legendary band performing in a sold out arena in front of 20,000+ screaming fans. Talk about an adrenaline rush!
I’ve been going through my archives a bit lately and wanted to share some images I haven’t yet posted. REO Speedwagon was out on the road with Ted Nugent (click to see photos) and Styx (click to see photos) on the Midwest Rock ‘N Roll Express Tour. I had the opportunity to shoot all 3 bands when they stopped by the Huntington Center in Toledo, OH.
Not long ago I had the opportunity to shoot some artist promotional photos for Blake Whiteley. He was in need of some images to support a new album he was working on with my good friend Jake Rye. Our objective was capture images for the album cover and packaging along with additional artist promotional photos to be used for social media and other marketing materials.
I recently had the opportunity to shoot Casting Crowns on the Thrive Tour when they came through Toledo and performed at the Huntington Center. Casting Crowns was supported on this tour by Mandisa and Sidewalk Prophets (I’ll have photos of their sets up soon). The production for all 3 bands was fantastic and it made for a really enjoyable concert. If you have a chance to catch this tour when it comes through your town, I highly recommend it.
