I'm a music, event, and portrait photographer currently based in Chicago, IL.
Kid Cudi in Cleveland, OH
I’ve had the chance to shoot Kid Cudi at two shows and he hasn’t disappointed. First, he rocked Newport Music Hall with the Cool Kids right next to Ohio State University. The above shot is from his headlining tour with Asher Roth and B.O.B. when they came through Cleveland. The wall-of-lights only got better as the set went on!

Brandon Zano formerly of This is a Shakedown in Cleveland, OH
A few years ago, I was blown away by TIAS as they opened for the Presets at The Grog Shop. They hauled in an incredible set of lighting gear for a small venue and really turned up the volume.
This was one of the first times I used Nikon’s CLS at a show and it worked out great with one flash off-camera. I had a chance to shoot the band again when they opened for Girl Talk at Case Western.

This shot is from Yo Gotti’s set at Super Jam.

One of my fave new music venues in Chicago is Thalia Hall located in the Pilsen neighborhood along 18th Street. I did some architecture photography as the venue was under construction over the past few months and was pumped to see Panda Bear in May.
The venue seems to be filling their concert lineup quickly which is awesome to see!

One of my favorite event shoots covering Red Bull athlete David Roth at a hometown soccer clinic. David, a St. Louis native, was a midfielder for the New York Red Bulls in MLS.
