I started working with I, The Breather on Warped Tour in 2014 due to being friends with their drummer, Aaron Ovecka. Since then, I've done slightly more in depth individual photo shoots with most of the guys over the years up until the band broke up in 2016.
In 2015, I spent roughly a week shooting Warped Tour dates around the North East and Canada. The majority of these, however, took place at the Toronto date, which was the last date of the tour I shot.
Sirens and Sailors has been one of the bands I've worked with consistently since 2010, as we're both based in Rochester, NY. These are from the past few years of working with them, throughout hometown shows, Warped Tour dates and shows throughout the North East.
Jason from letlive has eternally been one of my favorite front men and humans since the first time I saw letlive years ago. Jason and I always had a great friendship, managing to catch up quickly at shows every few months. He has the greatest personality, appreciation for people and smile. So when I shot them with Taking Back Sunday in 2015 at the Town Ballroom in Buffalo, I knew I had to try and grab a few portraits with him. These ended up being some of my favorite portraits, as they perfectly capture Jason's child like personality and smile.
I spent a week working with The Color Morale during Warped Tour in 2014 and have tried to shoot them whenever they've come through western NY. These photos are a result of the past few years of work.
In 2014, I spent a week on Warped Tour working with The Color Morale. These were portraits I created throughout the week during free time, before and after sets.
The whole series of Parking Lot Portraits started during a casual shoot with Patrick before Affiance played in Rochester at the Montage Music Hall. Since then, Patrick and I have always tried to do some sort of shoot whenever I've shot Affiance between Rochester and Buffalo shows.
