Who doesn’t love a great concert? My first foray into photography began with shooting concerts in 2009, and I’m privileged to have photographed well over 350 concerts since then. I’ve photographed musicians in a variety of settings including intimate club shows, multi-day music festivals, and sold out arena shows. Check out my portfolio of music photography – you might recognize a face or two!
With more than 4 years of professional concert photography experience, I’ve served as a contributing music photographer for a number of publications including Prefix Magazine, Pitchfork, Premier Guitar, The Stranger and Metromix Seattle, among others.
Currently, my concert and entertainment photography is represented by Getty Images and my work has been published in Rolling Stone, Billboard, People Magazine, USA Today, and more.
Whether you’re in need of photography coverage of a single concert event or a multi-day festival, I offer comprehensive music photography services. I have covered many large festivals including SXSW, Outside Lands, Sasquatch Music Festival, Bumbershoot Music and Arts Festival, and more.
