Janelle Monae @ Lincoln Theatre

Janelle Monae @ Lincoln Theatre

I feel pretty confident declaring that Janelle Monae is in the Top 3 of my favorite artists to photograph. She’s ay-may-zing and I really love trying to capture her stage presence and energy in my photos. She’s the real deal and I promise you if you go see her perform you will walk away impressed. [...]

Janelle Monae @ SXSW

Janelle Monae @ SXSW

Not sure what more I can say about Janelle Monae at this point. She’s a total superstar and I jump at any and all chances I have at shooting her. She is by far the most photogenic artist I’ve ever had the pleasure of shooting and I look forward to the stage in her career [...]

Janelle Monae @ 9:30 Club

Janelle Monae @ 9:30 Club

After shooting Janelle Monae not once, but twice earlier this year, I was very excited to get the chance to shoot her in the cozy confines of the 9:30 Club.  On Monday she started her national tour with Kevin Barnes and Of Montreal. Despite a strong performance on her part, it was hard to overlook [...]

Janelle Monae @ Summer Spirit Festival

Janelle Monae @ Summer Spirit Festival

My official motto for 2010 is “Never plass up an opportunity to shoot Janelle Monae.” So when I got an assignment to shoot B.o.B. at the Summer Spirit Festival two weeks ago and I found out that Monae would be on just before him, well that was an easy assignment to take. Yes please! I [...]

Janelle Monae @ DAR

Janelle Monae @ DAR

All I can say about Janelle Monae is that she is The Truth.  Seeing her in concert makes you ask “Why aren’t all shows like this.” Her natural ability, ambition and drive are all very evident when you see her perform.  She is mesmerizing and most definitely a superstar in the making. Originally I was [...]

Best Concert Photos of 2013

2013 was a great year for me, personally and professionally and was my most successful year ever as a photographer. In addition to my regular concert workload for the Washington Post, I had a few magazine spreads over the course of the year, took on a number of new clients like Red Bull and Levi’s [...]

Estelle @ Birchmere

Estelle @ Birchmere

One of my first assignments for the Post back in 2009 was shooting Estelle at the 9:30 Club, so obviously I was very excited to get the chance to shoot here again last week at the Birchmere. I adore Estelle, she oozes talent and puts on a great show. I’ve been listening to her new song with [...]

Best Concert Photos of 2011

Best Concert Photos of 2011

By my count I shot somewhere between 80 and 85 shows in 2011 (that’s counting SXSW as one gig each day). That’s down from the 120+ I shot last year, but overall I found this year’s pace much better for my sanity. This year will always have a special place in my heart because I [...]

B.O.B. and Wiz Khalifa @ SXSW

B.O.B. and Wiz Khalifa @ SXSW

I got an email late in the day Friday telling me that I had a photo pass for the Atlantic Records showcase at La Zona Rosa that was supposed to feature Lupe Fiasco and Cee Lo Green, both of whom dropped off the bill, later to be replaced by B.O.B. and… Janelle Monae! But before [...]

B.o.B. @ Summer Spirit Festival

B.o.B. @ Summer Spirit Festival

I already had an assignment for the Washington Post last Saturday but I had shot so many things last week that by the time they asked me if I could fit one more thing into my schedule, I figured why the heck not? My assignment was to shoot B.o.B. at the Summer Spirit Festival.  Maybe, [...]
