As I board a plane to cover Lollapalooza in Chicago, I also celebrate the one year anniversary of transitioning into a full time professional photographer. In the past year, I’ve had my work published in international print and online media, exhibited at a gallery in Moscow, and have become a regular contributor at The Times-Picayune and Getty Images. It’s been a great year that has taken me to more than 10 festivals around the country, into the depths of old New Orleans’ carnival society, and the home of living legend Fats Domino. Here are some of my favorites from the journey.
