To capture music in a photo

Trying to capture an artist on stage, capture their essence and conveying it through a single image, is one of my favorite challenges. The results, if successful, are often quite amazing.

This Monday, famous rock photographer Bob Gruen is visiting HPU to premiere the documentary of his life. Through-out his career he’s captured the likes of Led Zeppelin, John Lennon, The Rolling Stones, and David Bowie. Needless to say, meeting this man in person is something I’ve been looking forward to for a while.

Last summer I covered no less than four festivals and several different concerts. Hopefully, after meeting with Bob Gruen, the photos I shoot at my next music gig will take on another level.

Here are some of the moments captured last summer.
