With the year rocketing toward its close, I thought I'd take a moment to share some of my favorite images from 2014. Here's a collection of a few of my best music photography of the year.
Thanks for taking a little peek into my 2014. These images represent only a fraction of what I shot this year — due to image embargo and respect to clients who haven't yet used images yet, this selection doesn't include some of the year's biggest shoots.
Overall, it's been a really fantastic year. In late 2013, I moved from St. Louis to NYC and I've been very fortunate to have some great clients this past year. Travel included touring with Jason Aldean on a round of his sold-out stadium shows, as well as jumping on tour with Rascal Flatts, while publication work included Rolling Stone, Q Magazine and Kerrang. New work included being contracted to shoot stills on set of a music video for Sleigh Bells and doing official photography for X Japan's first-ever show at the historic Madison Square Garden in NYC.
I'm really looking forward to what 2015 brings, starting with shooting a Las Vegas residency with Rascal Flatts covering their rehearsals and a run of shows. Here's to 2015!
My Camera DSLR and Lenses for Concert Photography
Nikon Z 7: I use two Nikon Z 7 for my live music photography. A true do-it-all mirrorless camera with amazing AF, great speed and fantastic resolution.
Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8S: The 24-70mm is my go-to lens. The range is ideal for stage front photography and the image quality is superb.
