Month: October 2010


October 30, 2010


I’ll be uploading some digitals later today, but day one was a good start. The setup of all the stages is very different, with Pres Hall/Bingo/wwoz being very close to one another…some sound bleed but i love the close proximity.

My new set up is right by a beautiful old (75yrs) oak tree behind pres hall stage. My trusty and super hardworking assistant Mandy helped setup some palmettos on the side of the roots to block out the tent which was giving us hotspots on the outside of our frames.

i got to shoot rosie ledet, anders osborne, stanton moore, honey island swamp band, a-ron wilkenson, one of my photo idols: Rick Olivier…the guitarist and a few more. Today is action packed again. My friend, and uber talented photographer Erica Stavis will be helping out the rest of the way. can’t wait.

Bayou Country Super Fun

October 1, 2010

Yeah, ive had this aversion to ‘new’ country music, like, forever – so the only way to conquer one’s fear is to jump in the lions pit right? And i did that, covering the 1st Bayou Country Super Fest for Festival Productions (jazz fest). I found mostly cliche country trials and tribulations, but what won me over was that frail, pretty, “hooks for days” singer Taylor Swift. here are some shots. I guess i still like to shoot live music here and there.
