I was lucky enough to run into my wonderful friend, Kate. She showed off her new poster from the merch booth.
I think I need to start getting better at taking my own advice and allow for some personal time. I’ve been throwing myself into my school and magazine work so much that was forgetting that I’m allowed to enjoy myself every now and again. Fortunately, I’ve awesome people like my friend, Lucy, who messaged me late the other night asking if I wanted to check out a live performance of one our favorite audio series, Welcome to Night Vale.
A night of getting out of the house with a friend, and seeing some of my favorite actors performing exclusive material was exactly the pick-me up I needed. I’ve been feeling more relaxed, and more importantly, more productive for a while now. I’ll have to make it a point make mental health more of a priority. Maybe I’ll even make more time for blogging again.
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
I’m sure that anyone following the site remembers my shoot with the lovely and talented Samantha Novak. Those photos are actually just something that we shot on the side while working on her audition video to perform at the Electric Forest event this summer. Getting in would mean the world to her so, after you watch the video, go follow her on Facebook and YouTube. Then, share this around with anyone you can. She’s worked so hard for this, and any support will go a long way.
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.
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.
As always, if you were over at the Beachland Ballroom, 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.

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.
After such a fantastic experience last month, I’ve been eagerly awaiting the November mixer at the Cleveland Museum of Art. The theme for this month was a fashion show, and the designs were spectacular.
Aaaaaaaaaannnnnnd I’m back!
I’ve got a newly repaired computer, functional internet, and my work schedule has a temporary lull. That is just in time to post photos from a recent event at the Cleveland Museum of art. There was live music, drinks, pumpkin carving, and plenty of art I could talk about with my friends so I could prove that three semesters of art history class weren’t a waste. The best part is that it’s a monthly event, and November’s centers around a fashion show! I can’t wait to go back again.
