I'm a 25 year old photographer from Anchorage, Alaska. I've been doing photography for 5 years and I've taken pictures at hundreds of shows, worked with dozens of models, and shot a smattering of weddings all over the country
While I work out the logistics of my epic cross country road trip, I’m gonna use this blog and my Facebook page to showcase the best of my local band photos! Starting with Alaska born, now Portland residents, The Hoons!
The goal of this project is to take photos of and interview 150 bands, of varying genres, across the entire United States (3 per state) in the summer of 2015.
After the road trip is completed (and… well… the plane trip to Hawaii) I will compile all the best photos into a book and make it available for sale.
The only way the project will be successful however is with a lot of community support, in the fall I will be starting a Kickstarter campaign to fund the road trip, and between now and then I will be contacting musicians in every state in the US. If YOU know a really good local band, have friends or relatives that might let me couch surf with them, or can offer any other help anywhere in the country feel free to let me know!
Thank you everyone! I can’t wait to share this all with you!
My epic road trip planning begins. 150 local bands in 50 states in a thus far undetermined amount of time. Msg me if you know someone (especially on the east coast) who might be able to put me in touch with some musicians or promoters!!!
