BEANSMITH | Old Market Coffee Shop | Omaha, NE

Posted by annaleemedia in Misc. on Tuesday, March 21st, 2017 - (0 Comments)

I love creating with my friends and their businesses! I passed through Omaha on my current band tour and did some shots for Beansmith Coffee, a cozy coffee shop full of great window light in Old Market.

Best of 29

Posted by annaleemedia in Personal on Saturday, February 18th, 2017 - (0 Comments)

Another year, another decade, another blog post.

It’s fun and daunting to go back through almost every shoot from last year. These are 100 of my favorite photos I’ve taken, had taken of me, and just some meaningful personal moments. Some of the selection choices are obvious, and some are important for reasons maybe only I will appreciate. Now that I’ve been doing this blog recap for a few years, it’s fun to look back at the huge changes that have occurred in my late 20’s. See year 28 and year 27 here.

My profound thanks to those that have followed my work for any length of time. 30 is going to be a big year, starting immediately by touring with my 12th band. So I hope you’ll stick around! Here’s my 29th year in photos.

THE HUNNA | US Fall Tour | Pt. 2

Posted by annaleemedia in Tour on Saturday, February 11th, 2017 - (0 Comments)

Part 2 of my time with The Hunna was to join the Alt Nation Tour with Night Riots. (See Part 1 here.) We had a chance to get super close, and I made a new tour photog friend in Ben Zucker, which is always fun! Lots divey venues and long drives on this one.

A fun side job of shooting bands is working with them to create their merch catalogue looks! This shoot in a DTLA loft studio is for new X Ambassadors items now in their store.

Such a fun and crazy shoot! Captain Cuts released the music video for their first single “Love Like We Used To” today. Cougars, babies, cash on everything. Check out the video premier here on Idolator, complete with a lil’ cameo from yours truly, as well as Jax the porkie!

THE HUNNA | US Fall Tour | Pt. 1

Posted by annaleemedia in Tour on Wednesday, February 1st, 2017 - (0 Comments)

I had the pleasure of meeting and touring with these fun lads (see that English thing I did there?) this past Fall on 3 separate tours. All the way from the UK, it was The Hunna’s first time touring around the US, and they RIP it live.

This post covers runs supporting Jimmy Eat World (what???) and The Struts, another talented group of English homies. See Part 2 here!

INSTAGRAM MEETUP | February 12th | DTLA

Posted by annaleemedia in For Photogs | Personal on Monday, January 30th, 2017 - (0 Comments)

Hey friends!

I’ve wanted to host an IG meetup forever, so here it is!

Sunday, February 12th, 2017
3:30pm
Arts District, DTLA
#IGMeetDTLA

**Update: I’m super excited to be partnering with one of my favorite tools for this meet up: JPEGmini! It’s a computer app that decreases your photo’s giant file size without decreasing resolution or quality. WHUT. I’ll have discount codes for everyone that shows up! WHUTTTT??

WHAT IS AN INSTAGRAM MEETUP?
An Instagram meetup is a group of photogs (or photo enthusiasts) getting together to casually shoot, explore a cool area, exchange tips, and hang! You’re especially encouraged to take and trade photos of each other- who doesn’t need some good profile pic material?! Then post your favorites on IG with the hashtag #IGMeetDTLA, so we can all check them out.

DO I HAVE TO BE A PRO PHOTOG / BRING A “REAL” CAMERA?
Heck no! No experienced required. Bring whatever camera you have. Bring your phone!

WHERE TO MEET?
Inside the brand new Arts District Park on the SW corner of 5th & Hewitt (across from Urth CaffĂ©). We’ll meet there at 3:30, and I’m happy to chat/answer photography questions! From there we’ll split off, walk around and shoot.

WHERE TO END?
At sundown (or whenever you’re done shooting!), we’ll regroup at Everson Royce Bar on the SW corner of 7th & Mateo, to hang out and get some dranks!

PARKING?
Make sure to check traffic conditions on your route to the meet up and plan accordingly- it’s on Grammy day! There is tons of street parking in the section of DTLA that is the Arts District, and much of it is free. However, it’s a popular spot on the weekends, so give yourself some time. Just make sure to read all signs carefully!

SPREAD THE WORD!
Invite your friends! Here’s some options:
– Post the pic below on social media with the hashtag #IGMeetDTLA
– Invite friends to this public Facebook Event
– Retweet this tweet

See you there! XOXO,
@annaleemedia
