Alex and Zane at Echo Park Rising, 2014
I don’t take as many photographs of my friends as I should. Echo Park Rising this year would have been a complete nightmare if it weren’t for these two (among many other friends I ran into and spent time with on that last day). This reminds me of why I do what I do, that the insanity of the hustle is worth it when you get to be around such strange and beautiful creatures. While I began shooting concerts as a fan of the music and for my love of photography, I keep coming back because of all the fantastic people I’ve met along the way.
I’ve always said Matt Sharp was my favorite member of Weezer, so it was awesome to finally have the chance to see The Rentals perform. It was a blast to shoot and I’m going to see them again for fun tonight!
