So I just shot Riot Fest Denver...

I got a last minute request to shoot riot fest, literally two days before the festival. I had been trying for months to get a press pass. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life as a music photographer. It also tested and pushed me a lot as a photographer as well. I learned a hell of a lot, and I walked away feeling very accomplished, and exhausted! I have shot a lot of different kinds of music festivals, but not at this level. I had access to some of the biggest names in music and some of my favorite bands. Of course, I could have done so many things differently, but that is what makes life experiences great. We are always learning and evolving. I am very happy I got this opportunity. 

My photos were published on Listen Up Denver's website, and opened up a new door in my career. I can't wait to see what happens next!
