10 years ago, August 9, 2006, I shot my very first concert. I have met a ton of awesome photographers, security guards, promoters, bands and fans. I have gotten to see a ton of great shows and photograph some of my favorite bands, including, but not limited to: Breaking Benjamin, Incubus, Deftones, Sevendust, Taproot, Story of the Year, Cage The Elephant, Soundgarden, Shinedown and Halestorm.
The Carnival of Madness concert series stopped by The Pageant in St. Louis, MO on May 20, 2015 with two of my favorite bands, Halestorm and The Pretty Reckless. Both bands feature one of the best front women in the music industry, Lzzy Hale of Halestorm and Taylor Momsen of The Pretty Reckless.

311, The Urge and the Wailers threw a great Fourth of July party/concert, that included fireworks, at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater.
