Judah and the Lion

Last week I had the honor of photographing Judah and the Lion before they left for their Folk Hop N Roll tour. These are some of the most fun guys you will ever meet, and I wanted to make sure that came through in the photos. Being around them feels a bit like being around a family so I wanted the photos to subtly show that aspect. 

A couple of days after our shoot, I joined a couple thousand other people to go see them play a sold out show at the War Memorial here in Nashville. If they are touring to a city you live in, I highly recommend going to see them even if it’s for no other reason than to experience their cover of “Booty Wurk.”

Fleurie Pt. II

This is the second round of images from my shoot with Fleurie. I told Lauren upon preparing for this shoot that listening to her music always makes feel like I'm pulling an all-nighter, and I wanted to capture that feeling in the portraits I took of her. When she told me that most of her writing happens in the middle of the night, I realized why I felt that way about her music.

With the first set of images I posted, I was visualizing what I saw when listening her EP "Arrows." However, with these shots I was thinking about my personal favorite song of hers which is a tune called "Paralyzed." I think all it will take is for you to listen to it to understand why I shot these the way I did.

Sugar and the Hi Lows at the Ryman Auditorium

Last week I had the opportunity to photograph Sugar and the Hi Lows at the Ryman in Nashville as they opened up for Kacey Musgraves. It was such an awesome time getting to document the whole evening both before and after the show. 

Brandi Cyrus

This past week I finally had the chance to hang out with Brandi and shoot some photos of her for her style blog. We did some exploring in one of my favorites neighborhoods of downtown Nashville and ended up getting some shots I was pretty stoked on.

Yesterday I got out of my comfort zone and parted from my normal aesthetic. I stayed away from the lighting conditions I normally seek while I'm shooting and used as much harsh light as I could. I was really pleased with the results.
