Can't believe another year is coming to an end. I've gotten to experience some great shows this year and some I even got to photograph. So here it is, my "Best 10 Photos of 2012".
1. What was your favorite show to shoot for Buzznet this year?
My favorite show to shoot for Buzznet is a hard one to pick. Getting to photograph One Direction playing their first NYC show was awesome, not to mention Big Time Rush were amazing to shoot. Q102's Springle Ball was also an amazing experience, getting to photograph some top acts. One show that was near and dear to my heart had to be photographing one of Armor For Sleep's last shows, they were a band that I have been listening to for years.
2. Any great moments you can share?
When shooting at Q102's Springle Ball there was two stages, the main one and a small one in the back of the stadium where the smaller acts would be performing. Enrique Iglesias was performing and he was about to performing his third song, when all of a sudden he disappeared from the stage. All the photographers were really confused, standing there thinking maybe he went to get something from backstage. All of a sudden he was on the second stage, we had the option of just going backstage and waiting for the group after him to perform or quickly getting to the second stage. Next thing you know, we are all running backstage to get to the second stage to photograph him.
3. What is your favorite photo and why from this year?
There are so many photos to choose from! But my favorite is probably the one of Ryan from Hot Chelle Rae that I put in his gallery, simple because I think it's a great capture of him. I also really love the photo I got of James from Big Time Rush in the air! They had trampolines on stage and were just really fun to shoot.
4. What band's live set were you surprised by this year?
I was surprised by Emilie Autumn's set, I knew she was to be theatrical but I didn't know she was that much so! I really enjoyed photographing her and watching the performance.
5. Who are you dying to shoot in 2013?
I would love to shoot some of the same bands again, but other then that, Green Day, Taylor Swift, and Pink. Thought I don't know if those would actually happen in 2013, maybe sometime in the future!
