As a kid, I was always watching MTV (when it was actually music television) and was obsessed with Headbangers Ball. I bought cassettes, CDs, & T-shirts. I collected Metal Edge, Hit Parader & RIP magazines. I had posters of my favorite bands plastered on my walls (literally plastered with my overuse of Aqua Net). I used to sneak my little point and shoot cameras into concerts, pushing my way through to the front to try and get good pictures (without getting caught). I remember seeing photographers in front of me, right up to the stage (and on stage), and thinking to myself, “that’s where I need to be!”
I love capturing the raw energy of a live show. There is nothing better than that rush you feel seeing your favorite artists performing live. I love music so much that it makes my heart smile, being able to look back and share the photographs I’ve taken and reliving that excitement.
Music makes the world a better place.
