Summer Slump

The summer months in South West Florida are extremely hot and humid and not ideal for outdoor large venue concerts, and since I don’t often photograph local bands except for an occasional radio station event it’s been extremely quiet

However, just as the weather will be changing; concerts will be picking up and photographic activity is about to come alive.  A plethora of great arena concerts, along with some local shows with big name acts will be arriving in the next few months. I look forward to this bustle after a nice break.

Recently I’ve traveled up to the Tampa /St. Petersburg area and caught several large name acts; I’ve photographed  Alice Cooper, The REO, Def Leppard & Tesla Tour,  and the Heart, Joan Jett & Cheap Trick Tour.  These photos can be found on my Facebook page

Last night I was privileged to photograph The Cirque du Soleil show OVO at our local arena.  WOW! what an incredible show.  The colors were magnificent as the “bugs” danced, pranced, and flew across the stage.  The acrobatics for this show are world class and if you ever have the opportunity to catch such a show, make sure you go.  It’s well worth the money.

From Babies to Rock Stars

 

The wonderful thing about being a photographer is how life and work changes from week to week and sometimes from day to day. I can be in the park with a mom and baby, or a soon to be graduating senior as I was this past week and overnight it can change where I am in an arena photographing a rock star.

The question I ask myself most often is how did I get here? It’s not been easy and it’s taken a lot of Work, determination, and time. I enjoy the diversity of change and I enjoy meeting people and working with some incredible clients. I keep honing my skills and improving my art and of course marketing my work. I am passionate and so incredibly happy to be able to create so many wonderful memories for each of my clients.   I also love that I get to see those musicians that I enjoy listening to from behind the lens. I hope I never wake up from this dream.
