Ok, so this about a week late… sorry, I had a TON of pictures to go through! But, some good came of all the time spent going through images… I didn’t realize what a crazy year 2009 had been. One could even say it was jam-packed. I apologize in advance for the length of this post…it’s hard to narrow down a year with so many spectacular events!
In fact, some numbers for this year:
-78 shows (+ uncounted rehearsals, recordings, etc)
In no particular order, here are some of my favorite things of 2009:
I’ve shot some incredible bands:
I’ve done a bunch of backstage work (which I absolutely love doing, and want to continue in 2010):
I shot Mayhem Fest for the second year, and it remains one of my favorite festivals to shoot:
I shot all five nights of our alternative stations’ major year-end concert, Twisted:
I went to SXSW for the first time (although I still haven’t edited most of the photos… whoops):
I saw Metallica for the first time. Also a first, I photographed a show with a point & shoot (oh LX3, how I love you):
After many years of being frustrated, I think I might have finally learned the timing for capturing the jump shot:
I shot a stage adaptation of one of my favorite records EVER, Ludo’s Broken Bride:
I did some behind-the-scenes stuff on a major label video shoot:
And somehow, I managed to squeeze a few band promos in there:
Thanks to all the bands, publicists, and friends who have been wonderful thoughout this year!
