Kid Sister article on Chinashopmag.com

Read it here!

I shot for the cool peeps at China Shop during SXSW and am super happy they've wanted to continue working with me in NY. I think one of the best parts about freelancing is getting the opportunities to do lots of different things (I get bored easily) and photographing musicians is something I haven't explored fully yet.

I mean, I get to photograph shows I would attend anyway, hang out in VIP rooms and shoot the shit during interviews (I think Kid Sis and I wasted about 15 minutes of my allotted 30 gushing about our dogs) and that's pretty great. Bottom line is as long as I have a camera in hand and license to be creative, I'm content to do just about anything.

Really fun show even though it was freezing outside. I got my camera knocked into my face about 5 times, kept thinking I was gonna have a black eye or something. Photography = dangerous.

I couldn't pick my favorite crowd shot because It was a funny crowd-- one moment they were happily bouncing and the next they were attempting to storm the stage and yelling obscenities at the security guys who kept shoving them behind the protective line that I was taking refuge behind after the 5th face knock (thank you all-access pass, makes life so much easier).

This man needs no introduction.

I love it when I'm like 'Hi (insert artists name here), do you have a few seconds for me to take your portrait?' and they are like 'Yeah but only if it actually takes a few seconds.'

I don't know how hard it is to be a touring musician, but I know it's hard to be a journalist following your pretentious ass around. I'm the media, we need each other, remember? Give me 5 minutes and we could really make a picture, man.

Ah well, you work with what you got, I guess. Also, many strait up said no.

'Cept for Bun B, he was a total gem. Really kind guy!
