Twenty One Pilots & more @ The Ogden, 5/16/14

This was my first time shooting Twenty One Pilots (as well as the other two bands on this bill) and I certainly hope it won't be my last. They're a band that just doesn't disappoint live, and that definitely translates into photos well. They were incredibly fun to shoot (while a little difficult to at times because Tyler moves around so much) and I really hope I get the chance to photograph them again!

Full lineup:

letlive., Architects, Glass Cloud & I The Mighty @ The Marquis, 4/25/14

I absolutely adore shooting letlive. Not only are they some of the best dudes in the world, they're also the most energetic and fun band to watch (at least in my opinion.) I've shot them at least 5 times and every single time is different. Every single time, Jason is doing something just as crazy - if not crazier - than the last, including jumping off of balconies, leaping into the crowd even before the first line of the first song or climbing up some of the sketchiest looking speakers and bars I've ever seen. I've seen him and Jeff leap into the drum kit at the end of their set, practically beating themselves up just for the sake of a great live show and I've seen Jason go just as crazy, even with a sling around his arm because he decided it would be a good idea to punch out a window at one of their previous shows.

Honestly, if you've never seen letlive. - even if you're not into their music - they're a band that I think everyone should see at least once in their life. They just put so much heart and soul into their music and live performances that it's impossible not to like them, and it's always an absolute pleasure to take photos of these boys. 

On top of getting to shoot letlive. at their second date on this tour, I also got the chance to take photos of I The Mighty and Architects, who were a dream to shoot, and Glass Cloud, who are another one of my favorite bands to photograph. Honestly, if you have a chance to make it out to this tour, I highly suggest it. All of these bands are great.

Fans jumped onstage during the band's last song and sang along with them. One of them even hoisted Jeff up on his shoulders, which he looks pretty stoked about.

This is hands down one of my favorite images I've ever gotten of letlive. I feel like it describes them perfectly.

Chvrches @ The Ogden, 4/24/14

I had been looking forward to this show for months. I absolutely love Chvrches and I'd seen photos of their lighting setup and I knew that it would be a really fun, pretty show to shoot. I just hadn't expected it to be so challenging. While their lights were gorgeous and Lauren Mayberry was incredibly easy to photograph, a show like Chvrches was completely out of my usual comfort zone.
That being said, I still got some photos that I love of them and the show was absolutely amazing.

All Time Low @ The Ogden, 4/17/14

All Time Low will always be one of my favorite bands to photograph. Not only are they always solid live, but their lights are gorgeous and they always have a ridiculous amount of energy. Shooting them keeps me on my toes and I always walk away with photos that I love.

On top of that, this was my first time shooting Man Overboard and Handguns, and I couldn't be happier with how my photos of them turned out! Overall this show was just a ton of fun!
