Had a blast with Smallpools at SXSW this year- hope you got a chance to catch them if you were there! The fest kept them busy with showcases and interviews every single day. Here’s some shots from the week!

And check back for my next post featuring the rest of the rad SXSW bands I had the pleasure to hear/shoot!

I shot Silverstein at House of Blues in Hollywood last month on their Discovering the Waterfront 10 Year Anniversary tour. Probably my last time at that venue before it’s torn down! My buddy Victor Zeiser of Squeek Lights is one of the best LDs I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Enjoyed shooting this set for his website!

Check back for a follow up post with promos I shot for the band later on in this tour!

I had the privilege of documenting Grouplove‘s intimate benefit show (and first show of 2015) at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, LA. It’s been a few months since tour, so it was amazing to be back with this beautiful group of people! Read more about the concert’s cause here.
