Graham Coxon and Damon Albarn of Blur For Premier Guitar

Check out one of my photos of Graham Coxon and Damon Albarn in the last issue of Premier Guitar. 

“Coxon and Damon Albarn began playing together as schoolboys in Essex, England. The telepathy, brotherly affection, and creative tension between them is a cornerstone of Blur’s most vital and enduring work.”

Judging an All Female Photographers Competition in Bosnia and Herzegovina

I am so honored and excited to be the judge of an incredible photo competition taking place amongst female music photographers in Bosnia and Herzegovina. As a female photographer who started off when I was quiet young, I was always so excited when I would see another female photographer out there in such a predominately male driven environment. Creating an environment that is also supportive for women and girls is so important to me. One of the national TV stations in Bosnia and Herzegovina did an article about my participation in the competition, which you can see below.

Paul Simon Tribute for the Skirball Cultural Center

I made some photos for the Skirball Cultural Center of the Paul Simon tribute that was hosted by Sean Watkins and put on by The Bluegrass Situation. It was a really beautiful evening with wonderful music. Every Summer I look forward to making photos for the Skirball Cultural Center's Sunset Concert series.
