Published  August 2014

I moved to New Orleans three years ago to discover a life totally different than the one I was used to in California. I came out here with a box full of cameras to document the experience and the most important thing I discovered was a love for live music photography. After my first weekend in Hangout Fest’s sandy photo pit in 2012, I was hooked. It’s great seeing local acts, like Quintron, up on a big stage at Voodoo Fest, and nothing compares to being just feet away from the musician belting out songs I’ve only heard before on my little speakers at home, witnessing the raw energy of someone like Kim of Matt and Kim. I first saw Reignwolf last Voodoo Fest and couldn’t wait to shoot him again at Hangout now that I knew what an animated show to expect. And my guilty pleasure when visitors stay with me? Taking them on a swamp tour to see the gators.
