“I fell in love with music photography last year at this time, when I first started taking disposable cameras to shows. Gradually I’ve started getting more into film photography and I’ve really found a passion for capturing that raw energy that exists in a live forum. It’s just so full of fun and surprises, and while it can be challenging trying to shoot from the pit, especially at super active shows like Twin Peaks, White Reaper, and The Frights, getting my film back and getting to relive those fun moments makes it worth it time and time again.”
