Portraits | Advance Placement Tour 2016


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.

Favorite Photos of 2016


2016 is over and I'd like to share with you some of my favorite photos from this year. I am so grateful for all of the opportunities i've received this year. Touring with The Rocket Summer at the beginning of the year was amazing, then spending the whole summer working with Night Riots on their first full length release Love Gloom, and finally ending the year with a seriously amazing tour. I couldn't be happier and I can't wait to step it up in 2017!  


The Zoetic Tour Portraits

Managed to take portraits of everyone on The Zoetic Tour. I shot them the same way I shot the portraits on the previous tour, you can see those here. There was only two bands on this tour, The Rocket Summer and Farro, but I still managed to get quite a few portraits. I'm really happy with how these ones came out and it reminds me of how awesome all of these dudes were. 


Let The Kids Riot Tour Portraits


I decided to take some portraits of everyone on the tour at the last show. For as DIY as they are, they didn't come out half bad. All I used was a Canon 430ex II, Canon 5d mark III, and 24-70mm f2.8. That isn't a bad set up but It definitely isn't as cool as what some other photographers do for tour portraits. The goal is always to improve but for now, these are the tools I had. So I just set everyone up right next to the Young Rising Sons bus, which had some white on it, pointed my flash at the bus at an angle until I found one I liked. I got a portrait of every single person on the tour, including the beloved crew, but somehow I missed Matt from Night Riots. Oops, sorry dude <3.


Warped Film Photos 2015


I took a film camera on warped with two or three rolls of Kodak Portra 400. I loved how the colors came out and I've been really excited to post these for a while now. As I was saying in my previous blog, I made friends with a bunch of merch people. These people were all rad and really made the experience dope. Also, it has been almost a year so I'm sorry if I forgot anyones name.
