Events + Festivals 

Live music and Music festivals have always been a big part of my world. Before I got access to capture some of the countries biggest and wildest events, I was sneaking in as much camera gear as possible to tell the story from my point of view. Now I get to go and not just shoot, but recap these amazing gatherings. Do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life. This I love...


Global Dance Fest 


Welcome to Colorado's oldest straight EDM Festival, Global Dance Music Fest!  This 15th edition was the first year at their new location Mile High Stadium in Downtown Denver. This new venue brought in a whole new feel to this already amazing event.  More space, Carnival rides, HUGE headliners and the same "Feels" as always.  Here is Day 1 through my lens.

Tomorrowworld - not everyone got in for the best day ever...                     sunday

This was my favorite day of the weekend.  Unfortunately the mud became so bad that limited entry was possible.  The local police and heads of the festival had to keep everyone out, so only staff and campers allowed.  The energy was insane for who ever was lucky enough to enter the festival.  I was one of the lucky ones.
