Shooting from all across the country. – Another year of shooting live music is in the books. While my year started out with me living on the West Coast in San Francisco, it closed with me living back on the East Coast in New York City. Over the course of the year, I shot a few music festivals as well as shot some great bands in some new and unfamiliar [and mostly cool] venues. Along the way, I’ve met a lot of really talented photographers…it was an honor and pleasure working with most of you. You helped to keep my game sharp so that I can continue to bring you all the quality photos I pride myself on.

In total, I’ve photographed 157 bands…all while taking off most of January and then most of the entire month of April to shoot the Tribeca Film Festival…as well as being an event photographer month to month. [I may put up a Year In Review for all of the Event Photography I’ve done this past year].

Here are some of my favorite live music photos from this past year. They are in no particular order. I hope you enjoy viewing these as much as I did taking them.

Here is my 2014 Year In Music Review photos…
