It was by luck actually. I’ve always loved photography even in high school but it wasn’t till a friend who is a concert promoter needed someone to shoot one of his shows and it just took off from there.
Words don’t describe what I have witnessed tonight. I should just put away my camera and never shoot again because NOTHING will compare to tonight. I cannot even think or don’t know what to feel. That was a pure, honest to god, play every show like it was your last mother fucking show on this planet, performance.
Being a photographer is great. Tons of fun and I absolutely love it. However it isn’t cheap. You don’t get paid often and if you do, it’s not a lot, especially when you are a music photographer. Equipment for shoots are expensive as well as the travel to get to them. Money doesn’t come easy to most of us which is why photo credit for pictures isn’t the best way to give a photographer props for their time and effort. Yeah, it’s sometimes the only thing that can be given but dammit, we need to eat too.
I’m hitting a rough patch where most of my bills are going unpaid and I won’t be able to afford things around the holidays to be with my family. This isn’t a begging for your charity but times have hit tough for me recently as well as many of others. This is why I ask for your help. If you are a band, a fan, or just a lover of photography, I would appreciate your help in any type of donation to help keep me alive and keep me going. If you would like to help, please send any donations to PayPal using the email address, firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
