Lets see a few more from Bowlive, this time from Wednesday night with Oteil and Kofi. There were rumors that Warren, Derek Trucks, and Susan
were scheduled to show, but it appears that the Allmans practice ran long and even Oteil barely made it to the venue for the second set.

I also was contacted by the publicist of Cloud Nothings, a pretty good indie band out of Cleveland to take a few shots of their show
at Bowery Ballroom on Saturday night.

and got a few of a band called The Babies that went on after them.

Also looks like I made some headway on getting my first photo into Relix :devil:
so I'll let people know more when its finalized.

Tonight I'll be at Keller Williams at the Highline and Saturday evening with all the boardie bands at Mexicali :smile:

Keller Williams put on his usual excellent show on Friday night at the Highline. He played his hit songs, Freeker by the Speeker, Novelty Song, and Gate Crashers Suck into Scarlet Begonias. Plus I got to hang out with J-Me & his brother, Rob and Ann, Erin, Jordan, and a few others :)
Shooting the show however was a bit tough as the lights were generally dark so I shot mostly with the primes and pumped the ISO up pretty far.

Due to the wonderful weather, we've been going for walks the last few days on the Hudson River.
Here's one of Lower Manhattan, the Twin Towers would have stood about dead center in the shot.
This has four photos stitched together using Autostitch.

Thanks Josh, everyone seems to be responding to that photo :)


I took a few shots of P-Groove on Friday night. They sold out the show right as they went on stage and played two excellent sets.
The Bowery is always a bit of a tough room with tricky lighting and no photo pit, but I think they came out well.

In the odds and ends department.

Hidden Track ran a review of the P-Groove show at the Bowery Ballroom, using a few of the shots seen above.

Also I reworked this old baseball photo of Marc Brownstein for Hidden Track's baseball preview.
Hopefully they'll get that interview up soon.

Also I got my first photo in the latest issue of Relix (with the check being in the mail!) They ran a story on the Tea Leaf Green/Galactic show at Terminal 5 with
the following photo of Reed Mathis.

and I also did a quick write up on Hidden Track about the new HBO Treme. It focuses on musicians in New Orleans in the weeks following
Hurricane Katrina and is written by David Simon, the writer of The Wire.

they will be filming that night at the Portsmouth Music Hall. I'm pretty excited about that one :)

So this past weekend I was invited up to Portsmouth, New Hampshire to photograph The Brew for the filming of a live DVD.
They ended up running 8 Hi Def cameras and had some really nice lighting set up for the show at The Music Hall. I ended
up shooting from 11am (during set up) to almost 11pm at night. These are a few of the highlights, enjoy :)

I got a chance to catch Grace Potter and the Nocturnals outside Grand Central Terminal on Friday afternoon. It was a beautiful day (and excellent light),
not too crowded and they ran through a 45 minute set that included Paris, White Rabbit, and their new single Tiny Light.
I got a chance to talk to Benny Yurco quickly after the show and even got an autograph on a photo from last year's GOTV :)

So yesterday was a bit of an up and down day. I found out that the huge job I was 100% sure I had, I did not and was merely in a group of people waiting to hear back from the sponsors. Huge bummer and huge miscommunication that was handled about as unprofessionally as anything I've seen....

So that being said its time to move on to the next thing and this past weekend it was the Disco Biscuits at the Wellmont Theatre. I was pretty excited to get shots of all the guys on stage and hear the sound of the Mega-Biscuits together. Barber got to play some extended songs in both sets and the crowd really came alive when he stepped out and strapped the guitar on for the first time during the show. On top of that, the lighting for the band is really top notch and the venue itself was fantastic. Lots of different levels and vantage points to shoot from and even some great seating up top to rest your feet in for a bit.

So last Saturday night I had the opportunity to photograph Deer Tick and Dr. Dog at the sold out Terminal 5.
The show opened with the members of Deer Tick wearing dresses and ended with a marriage proposal during Dr. Dog's set and had
some pretty good music inbetween.
It was a pretty tough shoot overall, three songs for each and being that they're both indie bands, the songs were short ones.
Also the lighting tended to be mostly red and blacklit for Deer Tick, while it was all over the place for Dr. Dog, with a ton of strobe action.

I wanted to post a few odds and ends before the weekend.

First Jambands.com ran an article on The New Deal and their summer plans, using one of my shots of Jamie Shields from Music Hall of Williamsburg.
Hopefully I'll get a chance to catch them a couple times this summer including Camp Bisco :)

Also did a quick studio shoot with Carla the other day. Hopefully she'll be able to use them on her food blog
http://carlastastytreats.blogspot.com/
These were shot with a shoot through umbrella, left of the camera, with a hair light at camera right.

I also came up with a new publicity piece for this summer. Its an assortment of shots taken at Camp Bisco, Mountain Jam, moe.down,
Gathering of the Vibes, and more from the past three years. It focuses on who I consider to be the top guitarists in the jam music scene,
(whom I've had the great pleasure to photograph) Hope you like it :)

I got the opportunity to check out the Marco Benevento Trio on Saturday night. Unfortunately the All Access pass never materialized, due to the
fact that it was his wife's birthday and the entire (Italian) family was in attendance :huh:
The lighting was fairly decent for this show and I was able to switch back and forth between the prime lenses (1.8) and the (2.8) zooms and stay
mainly in the 1/200-1/160 sec range at 1600 ISO, although after carrying that much gear, by the end of the night my back was really killing me.
Reed Mathis is the bassist on this tour, but Marc Friedman came to the show as well (with a +3 lol) and sat in on the last song :)

LOVE the shot of Carla and the asparagus.

Really like the collage. I personally wouldn't have made Weir's pic that big (mainly because I don't think him that good a guitarist). I might have gone with Warren or Trey for that spot, but, that's subjective. I really like the overall look and feel of it.

As always, your work gets better and better with every pic I see jg. :thumbup:

Yeah I wouldn't disagree about Weir being ranked behind Warren or Trey (or Trucks) but I figured this would be more about importance in the music scene, with the Dead as the lead and everything that's flowed out of it. I'm hoping at some point this summer to get a shot at Furthur and a photo of Phil Lesh and do a companion piece for bassists...

I wanted to throw some odds and ends up there, while I'm still hustling to finish up the shots from The Mighty High Mountain Festival.
.
First, Carla wrote up a great article on items to bring while camping at a festival
http://www.glidemaga...-1-be-prepared/

and we used a couple of old images, including one of Again and Again's Birks drying in the sun at Gathering of the Vibes.
Posted Image
.
We also used a favorite image I took a few years back at Summer Camp during the Tea Leaf Green set.
Posted Image
.
Also Hidden Track ran an article on Deer Tick and ran one of my recent photos from their Terminal 5 show.

http://www.glidemaga...deer-tick-time/
.
There was also an article on Wade “Wyllys” Wilby with a download of one of his latest mixes, with an image I recently took at Wellmont Theatre
Posted Image
http://www.glidemaga...-summer-simmer/
.
Carla also wrote up an article of all the Memorial Day festivals that happened last weekend.
http://www.glidemaga...kend-festivals/
.
We got to use a few of my images taken last summer at GOTV and a moe. show out in Jersey and a few images from Britt Nemeth as well!
Posted Image
Posted Image
.
Also I had a chance last week to hang out in my old neighborhood of Long Island City and do a shoot with my buddy Rahj. Definitely got some work in with the off camera flash and he's a pretty expressive guy, so it was a lot of fun. I'm pretty excited about the first one :)
Posted Image

.
and finally having a bit of luck turn my way, I started working for photographer Elizabeth Waugh this past Tuesday.
http://www.elizabeth...hotography.com/
at this point I'll mostly be assisting in the studio and on set, but I'm really hoping to learn a ton about studio shoots and the business in general.
Plus I'm scheduled for my first call time this Friday and its a men's fashion shoot that includes two huge birds! :Phishfolk:

For lighting the first day was a little overcast which was great, especially towards sundown
as the stage lighting added some great rear highlights. It was a little tougher shooting on Sunday with
some really strong direct sunlight, basically forcing the exposures to turn the background of the stage completely black.
For the evening the lighting was really well done and the crowd was easy to move around with.

I got a chance to see Jackie Greene and his band at the City Winery down in Tribeca on Tuesday night.
It was my first time there and the place is set up like a dinner theater place or like BB Kings when it has a seated floor.
Luckily it was easier to get around than a packed show at BB Kings and the lighting ended up better than I expected.
Jackie was doing a cd release/WFUV live radio show, so there was a set, then an interview and then another set.
He did a bunch of new songs and some old ones, but I think everyone's favorite was his acoustic encore of Brokedown Palace
to end the evening.

(There's also a couple lovely ones of Phil Lesh and Darren from The New Deal, from Chris Paul in there as well :) )

So a few shots from John Butler Trio and State Radio at Summerstage.
Unfortunately I didn't realize that State Radio went on at 6:30 that night, so as I'm hustling into the park, of course the band is on
and I missed my spot in the pit :bang: So feeling stupid, I wandered around and got a few long shots of the band from the crowd.
Posted Image
Posted Image
.
Then after the opening set I wandered around backstage and noticed the lead singer from State Radio and Pete Francis (former bandmates) talking
so I tried to get them to pose for a photo, but they were having none of it, so as I turned to walk away, I noticed John Butler and his band readying to
take the stage and took this one :)
Posted Image
.
Here's a few more from the stage. We had three songs and the daylighting was excellent for the first two, although it went down considerably after that.
I also got a few shots in later in the show at sidestage when John Butler's wife, Danielle Caruana sat in for a few songs.

I've been super busy lately (mostly interning for a photographer in Bushwick)
but I wanted to post two engagement shots from the weekend of Carla's sister on the lake in New Hampshire.
We used an off camera flash with a shoot through umbrella and we had been trying to convince them all weekend to pose for
a photo. Finally on the 4th of July with the sunset looking beautiful they went for it and we scrambled and got a few good shots.

Alright so I wanted to post some photos from Akron/Family from last week at Le Poisson Rouge.
It was my first time seeing them and going to Le Poisson Rouge and they did not disappoint.
They are currently a three piece band that filled out their sound with 12 other musicians, mostly from the opening bands.
Most of the songs I would say were good but not particularly memorable, but holy cow they did a 20 minute song that had the place jumping, with crowd members ripping off their shirts and people jumping up on the stage and just generally going nuts. For anyone who likes live music/jam music it was probably the most exciting thing I'd seen in a long while.
The lighting for the show was a bit tough and there was no photo pit, but I think I did a decent job using mostly the primes and just simply taking a ton of shots.
[ame][/ame]

I'll post the slide show for now and edit it later. This weekend we've got a very special boardie birthday :) and possibly a late night show and then next week its off to Camp Bisco!

So I had the opportunity to photograph God Street Wine's reunion show on Saturday. I always enjoy shooting at the
Gramercy Theatre with the great lighting, sloped floor, and stadium seating. Even for a completely sold out show such
as this one there were angles to shoot from (and some air conditioning :wink: ) We got 3 1/2 songs in the pit and then the boot,
Funny thing however is that most of the "jamband" photographers were there, from Dino Perrucci, to Mike Wrenn, to Dave Vann, and
even a few more, seemed like everyone was there, which made me wonder who was at All Good :huh:
I mostly kept the aperture at 2.8 and the shutter speed at 1/250, and the ISO at 1250. Probably ran it a bit too hot, but the dynamic lighting
was a bit tough, better than no lighting at all though :)

So we went to Camp Bisco 9 last week and had a fantastic time. We got to meet and camp with a ton of musicans, had a long conversation with Mike Greenhaus, and even photographed the CiD VIP signing with the Disco Biscuits. From a musical perspective I got to be just a few feet away from Method Man, as he jumped off the stage to be closer to the fans and to photograph Major Lazer as they danced and gyrated on top of each other was a sight to see. As always the photo pit was tight with people and the main stage was impossibly high, but I still got a few good ones off.
There’s a shot with Girl Talk, that I worked really hard to get in the Tent Stage, by the time I got to the tent, security wasn't going to let us anywhere in front of the stage, so I talked to another photographer who had just been at the back of the stage and walked up there myself. Got to the top of the steps and one of the stagehands apologized and moved out of my way. So I figured I'd ask the other one if I could move closer and he said sure, as long as you don't bother the dancers, got a couple of shots off and moved off. Wouldn't you know it though, a couple of minutes later Girl Talk jumps up on his stage and I'm not close enough to nail it... oh well.

I wanted to throw some quick ones up of last night's Flaming Lips show in Central Park.
Pretty crazy in the pit as the ramp for the "Hamster Ball" divided the photo pit in half and as Wayne ran around the stage,
photographers ended up scrambling for shots, while confetti fell and the crowd went wild.
Luckily I got a shot of Wayne watching the opening band, that I really liked.

Thanks Sarah and Bethany :)

So this past weekend, Carla and I went to Pet Zoo in New Jersey. A beautiful backyard festival with The Heavy Pets, U-Melt, Toubab Krewe, The Brew, and more.
The great thing about small festivals is that everything is such a short walk, friends are easy to find, and you can hear the music from your campsite.
The lights were great for this one, I had heard the guy who does the lighting for Furthur set it up (can't confirm that though). I also spent a good deal of time trying
to photograph the hula hoopers and the fire spinners and finally got it right by the end. The cool thing with the hula hoopers, is the exposure is around 1/15 of a second and is crystal clear :)

Also this past weekend I got an email from Brady Rymer of From Good Homes, asking me if he could hire me to shoot his side project The Little Band That Could on Sunday. I had a great time at the Prospect Park Bandshell and on top of being the easiest shoot I have ever done, it was a kids show. So I'll have those shots up shortly when they're finished :)
.
Also I'll be shooting at Lotus tonight at Roseland Ballroom, should be a good time.

In the odds and ends department.

Hidden Track ran a review of the P-Groove show at the Bowery Ballroom, using a few of the shots seen above.

Also I reworked this old baseball photo of Marc Brownstein for Hidden Track's baseball preview.
Hopefully they'll get that interview up soon.

jambands.com ran this shot of Jon Gutwillig, following the news of his broken arm after the Disco Biscuit show in Albany.

Also I got my first photo in the latest issue of Relix (with the check being in the mail!) They ran a story on the Tea Leaf Green/Galactic show at Terminal 5 with
the following photo of Reed Mathis.

and I also did a quick write up on Hidden Track about the new HBO Treme. It focuses on musicians in New Orleans in the weeks following
Hurricane Katrina and is written by David Simon, the writer of The Wire.

and that's about it for this week, but on April 10th I have been invited to photograph The Brew up in New Hampshire, for stills to accompany a DVD
they will be filming that night at the Portsmouth Music Hall. I'm pretty excited about that one :)


Great photos as usual....glad ya covered Treme.....I really hope it comes back. Such a great show!
