Ryan Adams @ the Wiltern

Last night Ryan Adams played his first of two shows at the Wiltern. It was incredible up until the PA system broke. Jenny Lewis also guested on a few songs.

Ryan Adams has been a long time favorite of mine but I’d never had the opportunity to shoot him before last Friday. I initially discovered Ryan Adams on accident in 2003 when I walked into a record store and saw the cover of Rock N Roll. I remember loving how gutsy it was that someone would actually name their damn album Rock N Roll. Little did I know how many times I'd have it (and his other records) on repeat over the next few years... ⚡️🎸⚡️

Ryan Adams @ Valley Performing Arts Center for KCSN Benefit

Last Friday night Ryan Adams, Conor Oberst, and David Gray performed at the Valley Performing Arts Center for the KCSN benefit. 

This show I crossed off one of the last remaining names on my “bucket list” of musicians I really want to photograph. Ryan Adams has been a long time favorite of mine but I’ve never had the opportunity to shoot him before. I initially discovered Ryan Adams on accident in 2003 when I walked into a record store and saw the cover of Rock N Roll. I remember loving how gutsy it was that someone would actually name their damn album Rock N Roll.

Mac McCaughan in Premier Guitar!

I have a photo of Mac McCaughan of Superchunk and founder of Merge Records in the latest issue of Premier Guitar. Featured here: Mac’s ‘70s #Gibson Marauder Custom loaded with the original Bill Lawrence-Designed humbuckers that McCaughan favors for clean sounds but can still #distort and sustain like the Melody Maker he played for years.

Happy Birthday to Ethan!

Happy birthday to Ethan, who has been my lifelong friend though so many journeys over the years.

“Remembering our past, carrying it around with us always, may be the necessary requirement for maintaining, as they say, the wholeness of the self. To ensure that the self doesn’t shrink, to see that it holds on to its volume, memories have to be watered like potted flowers, and the watering calls for regular contact with the witnesses of the past, that is to say, with friends. They are our mirror; our memory; we ask nothing of them but that they polish the mirror from time to time so we can look at ourselves in it.”

Is An MFA the New MBA?

I'm going to start using this blog to post articles I find interesting regarding photography and design as well as my personal work. This is a fascinating article by Fast Company regarding the current state of MBA's and the importance of MFA's: http://www.fastcompany.com/3007541/mfa-new-mba

"The artist is a builder, an engineer, a research analyst, a human relations expert, a project manager, a communications specialist, and a salesman. The artist is all of those and more-- combined with the imagination of an inventor and the courage of an explorer. Not a bad set of talents for any business challenged to innovate in a world of volatility, uncertainty, and change."

Happy Birthday to Karen O!
