Over the last few years, as a personal outlet, I began performing standup comedy at open mic nights. Eventually I began taking my camera to the shows and photographing the other comics. I did this for them for fun. One day I was asked to shoot a hardcore/punk rock show. The energy of the bands and the audiences is very fun to capture. I process them in a way that feels complimentary...contextual. It's quickly becoming my favorite subject to shoot. I haven't shot that many hardcore/punk/skate shows, but I intend shooting them as often as possible.
