This is just part I of the over two month Zombies in America Tour with Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, Atlas Genius, and Night Riots. We started off the tour with a headlining tour in Fresno. The next day we headed over to Anaheim to start the official tour. We didn't really know anyone at first and this tour felt different because everyone had bigger crews but of course we were just trying to figure out the groove of the tour. We would eventually get to know everyone and find out that this tour would be one of the best.
Instead of making a bunch of smaller blogs, I thought I'd just throw all of my favorites of February 2017 into one bigger blog. Feburary was filled with a lot of fun stuff, I celebrated my birthday, hosted a photo meet up & went to another in LA, and shot some photos of friends.
I'm currently sitting in Burbank looking back on an amazing day where two photo friends came to visit my original home of the Central Coast. As I look back on the photos, I remember having a lot of fun even just driving and around talking about shooting shows or goals for the future. I'll link their instagram's on their names so you guys can follow them as well. @annaleemedia & @mallorymturner. These are two genuinely great people that I feel lucky to know and I'm glad to know I have these photos to reflect on a good day.
I took the portraits of The Shelters outside of the Marquis Theater in Denver, CO. Before the show was ideal for the shots because it was our last show of the tour with them so I knew after would be crazy. The next night was the last show of the tour for us so we took some photos with The Hunna. I think everyone was feeling a little bummed about parting ways so we stuck around for as long as possible that night trying to savor the moment. I took the portraits of The Hunna outside of Club Sound in Salt Lake City, UT. All the portraits were shot with a Canon 5d Mrk III, a Sigma 50mm 1.4 Art Lens, and a Canon 430 ex II flash. At the bottom will be links of tour portraits I've done in the past.
After being home for the entire summer, the Night Riots full length had come out and it was finally time to tour. I couldn't be happier to be back with my brothers in the van. We started the tour with some long drives and some amazing shows. All the equipment I used was a Canon 5d Mrk II & III, Sigma 50mm Art, 24-70mm L Series, and an Incase DSLR Pro Pack.
