Random Rab and Saqi at Beachland

With my schedule filling up with more work, I’ve had to cut back on how many of these events I can attend. But, I’m so glad that I came out to Beachland on Saturday night.  I tend to hang out in the margins when I shoot, but I decided to try to reach out and everyone was fantastic. It was nice to finally feel like I was a part of an event rather than just shooting it

Back to Beachland: Part 2 (Electric Boogaloo)

Just as promised, I’ve got part two of the Beachland event I posted yesterday. However; where yesterday featured more of the crowd and general performers, today’s focuses more on the stage headliner and performers. It couldn’t be helped. DJ Govinda was amazing and the dancers were nothing short of spectacular.

As always, if you  like the photos, and want to support all of the work that goes into them, it would be fantastic if you could click that ‘Donate’ button over there on the right sidebar. At this point, the only way that I can continue to shoot these events is if I am making at least a little to cover all of the time I spend shooting and in post. I’m trying to upgrade my camera, (which will mean better event photos and video) so every little bit helps. If you don’t have the scratch to contribute financially, no need to worry. You can still help out the site by subscribing to me here on WordPress, sharing the gallery on social media with your friends, and ‘Liking’ my official Facebook page.

Back to Beachland: Part 1

I think my photos are getting  popular with the local ‘Flow’ scene, since I keep getting asked to come and shoot more events. Either that, or they just like me for my personalty. Nah, must be the photo thing. Either way, I’m still having a blast shooting these. The people are all fantastic, and then getting to listen to some new music while I shoot performance artists just makes these events something I always look forward to.

Since I came home with so many photos of the event, I had to split the shoot into two galleries. The second one should be up tomorrow morning, so keep an eye out for those.

More Studio 526

Every time I go back to Studio 526, I try to shoot it a little differently. This week, I tried tighter photos, black and white, and played with back-lighting more.

Feel free to share around the photos. If you like what I do, and want to help support me so I can keep shooting events like this, it would be fantastic if you could click that ‘Donate’ button up in the right hand side of the site. Even if you can’t give, still feel free to share these around the web, and subscribe to me here on WordPress.

Tuesday at Thursday’s

I’ve become popular enough shooting at Studio 526 that I’m starting to get invited to other events. I spent Tuesday night getting to shoot at Thursday’s lounge in Akron, getting to see the light shows put on by some of Akron’s flow artists. I wound up coming home with a ton of photos, so I’m splitting this into two galleries. Feel free to share around the photos. If you like what I do, and want to help support me so I can keep shooting events like this, it would be fantastic if you could click that ‘Donate’ button up in the right hand side of the site. That would amazing.

 

Tuesday at Thursday’s: Part 2

As promised, I have the second batch of photos from my shoot over at Thursday’s Lounge in Akron. Evidently, when you have such an awesome, talented crowd, you come home with about 7 gigs worth of photos to edit, and have to split into multiple galleries. 

As always, if you like the photos and want to support me, you can donate using the PayPal button in the top right of the page. If you aren’t able to donate, but still feel like helping me out, you can always share around the photos, subscribe to the site on WordPress, and “Like” me on Facebook. Support from people like you is what keeps the lights on here, so any help will be greatly appreciated and lets me keep shooting.

First Ride

FINALLY! The weather has warmed up enough that I can creep from hibernation and go biking again. And, what’s an inaugural ride without a GoPro to shoot all of the photos I can’t be bothered to stop and take myself? In retrospect, it was probably counter-intuitive to convert all of photos of the glorious, spring ride into black and white, but I feel like I had to do something to set them apart from all of the other biking pictures I post.

I’ve set a personal goal to bike 1,000 miles this year, and today’s 20 mile trek was my first step.I just hope I can keep up the momentum,
