1. What was your favorite show to shoot for Buzznet this year?
My favorite show to shoot this year would definitely be The Pretty Reckless in Chicago! The concert was os much fun to shoot and even more fun to just let go and dance and sing along! Any show from Taylor Momsen is amazing! Getting to meet her afterwards was especially awesome! Closely followed by Florence and The Machine who is so amazingly talented it's unbelievable!
2. Any great moments you can share?
It was my first time shooting at an arena type venue where there are literally thousands of people. I was there to shoot Carly Rae Jepsen and Justin Bieber... automatically a frenzy... Anyway, I'd never shot there and nobody could tell me where to meet the other photographers, so I got led around for 30 minutes until someone told me to wait in Justin Bieber's dressing room, I hung out with his manager backstage and watched 13 year olds cry when he walked by, it was a pretty crazy experience!
3. What is your favorite photo and why from this year?
I think my favorite one would have to be a tie between Carly Rae Jepsen and the Imagine Dragons photo! I'm a lighting junkie, and the lighting for those photos was a major stroke of luck! Another photo that deserves a mention would be the AWOLNATION photo, because he looks so much like Kurt Cobain circa 90's that it's a little scary...
4. What band's live set were you surprised by this year?
I was definitely most surprised by Florence and the Machine! Flo's voice is great on record, but you never know when bands are going to sound the same as they do on their albums... some definitely don't... but she sounded 100x better than any recording, her voice just filled the entire theater, it was an amazing night for sure!
5. Who are you dying to shoot in 2013?
Hmm, LANA DEL REY, Tegan and Sara, Pink and Lady Gaga!
