No matter who I hear him play with, he always sounds like himself, and I like that.

When the bass player sets his music stand so high, I have to find a different way to shoot him.

Thanks to Bonnie Wright for putting this music series on. This day was dubbed “Bonnie Wright Day” by the mayor, and Bonnie found out just before downbeat.

Minot knows how to play a house show.

It was like seeing Polvo for the first time. Dense and electrifying.

I’ve been a fan of the drummer’s music photography for a few years. Shannon Corr is kind of like the “me of Oakland” when it comes to shooting rock shows. This was the first time we’ve met in person.

It was too hot inside to shoot the other bands, but it was a really fun
afternoon that gave me back some things I’ve missed during my musical
exile.

Minot Group Shoot, 5/11/13

Minot’s San Diego show got canceled last minute, so they held a daytime house party show with a few other bands at a house off Texas Street. I was going to do a night portrait with them which wasn’t going to work during the daytime. I had to try anyway.

Along with a more straightforward shot.

The drummer, Nasheet Waits, is fantastic. His playing was effortless and brimming with ideas.

I met up with Eric Rife to shoot Llano Del Rio last week. It was a full moon, and we found this 100 year old silo. Eric lit up the interior, while I light painted the outer surface of the silo and the wall.

I like how I got the silo to bend in the same arc as the star trails.
