The Zoltars | SXSW

I love photographing people doing what they are passionate about. This has led me to photograph drag kings, non-profit meetings and fundraisers, band performances, and yes, I consider weddings falling under this category, too. When people are in the moment doing what they love, I feed off of it, and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else except behind my lens taking photographs.

I’ve photographed my friend Jared and his band, the Zoltars on many occasions. Jared even chose one of my more artsy photographs for his album cover which should be released in the near future. This week is SXSW in Austin, and Jared is performing all week. I know it’ll be hectic for him, so I’m wishing him luck. If you are in town and joining in the festivities, you should definitely check out the Zoltars.

The Zoltars | Live

I was fortunate enough to be asked by my good friend Jared to photograph The Zoltars’ live performance at Spiderhouse the other night. Jared is the band’s lead singer and guitarist. We met last summer working at a Jewish summer camp in town, and needless to say, we hit it off. It also makes me extremely happy to watch The Zoltars get more and more recognition in the Austin music scene. If you haven’t heard them yet, you should definitely check out their website. The band will be featured on Daytrotter soon so look out for that too. Here are some of my favorite shots from that night. Enjoy!

Musicians | Austin, Tx

Lauren and I will be shooting around 16 or so weddings this fall so I’ll be posting them weekly. If you want to view past weddings, engagements and/or bridals, you can look at the sidebar to the left to see everything I have recently uploaded.

This post is about my work with artists, primarily focusing on musicians. Documenting musicians has always been a unique experience for me. I prefer to show the many facets of a band during their practice, recording and hangout time. This has proved more interesting to me than photographing live performances. Bryan Ray and Chris Grant make up the beginning of the post. Followed by the band Harlem. And last but not least, the post ends with an up-and-coming garage rock band that I’m addicted to called The Zoltars. All the musicians have been linked to their respective myspace pages. I’m sure they’ll be playing a live show in Austin sooner or later so check ’em out. Enjoy!
