Indie Game Revolution @ EMP Museum

The pixel inspired theme of the Indie Game Revolution at the EMP Museum in Seattle is pretty eye-catching. Featuring a variety of indie games to play and explore, Mike and I had to come back to the EMP on our pacific coast road trip to see what was new. These are a few shots I captured of this awesome pixelated environment.

Cadillac Place in Detroit, Michigan

cadillac place detroit general motors buildingConstructed between 1919 to 1923, Cadillac Place (formerly the General Motors Building) is a National Historic Landmark in Detroit, Michigan. Prior to moving into the Renaissance Center, this was the headquarters for General Motors from 1923-2001. I captured a few shots of this impressive structure for my Middle America photo series while exploring the city.

Concert Photography: Volume One

concert photography medicine hat albertaIn recent months I've photographed some amazing shows. From pubs to arenas to music festivals, my library of concert photography has been growing quickly. I put together this highlight reel to showcase a few of my favorite shots from over the last year (most of which were shot in Medicine Hat, Alberta). Artists include the Tragically Hip, Hawksley Workman, Paul Brandt, Joel Plaskett, Barenaked Ladies, Chantal Kreviazuk, Yukon Blonde, Tim Hicks, and more. 

I have to thank the Canalta Centre, the Esplanade Arts & Heritage Centre, Medicine Hat Folk Music Club, Medicine Hat Jazz Fest, and Shambhala Music Festival for granting me media passes to their events. Also, huge shout outs to the local artists who invited me to their shows and to all those who were involved in making these shoots possible. 

Concert Photography: Volume One
Local acts, music festivals, arena concerts and a bit of everything in between. These are some highlights from my concert photography shoots over the last year. Featuring The Tragically Hip, Hawksley Workman, Paul Brandt, Joel Plaskett, Barenaked Ladies, Chantal Kreviazuk, Yukon Blonde, Tim Hicks, and many more. Further shout outs to MHZINE for being a link to the local music scene, and to the Canalta Centre, Esplanade Arts & Heritage Centre, and Shambhala Music Festival for hooking me up with media passes. It's been a blast to photograph so much talent!

From the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah

Aberdeen, Washington is the hometown of Kurt Cobain and a worthwhile stop for any Nirvana fan. The Young Street Bridge spanning the Wishkah River was once a hangout for Cobain, and as a result it's now decked out in graffiti paying respects to him and the band.

This time it was far easier to read the messages, and also surprising to see how many new ones had been added to the bridge. Places like this are inspiring because you see some really raw expressions of what the music and the man meant to so many individuals. It's a humble memorial to someone who made a huge impact.
