Live Music – Beartooth @ The Paramount

Every since shooting them at Warped Tour this year, I’ve been wanting another crack at the amazing Beartooth.  When they came by The Paramount on Long Island, opening for Sleeping With Sirens and Pierce the Veil on the World Tour, I of course could not miss them…


Live Music – King 810 @ The Paramount

Growls and screams from the Detroit bred metal band King 810 as they opened for KoRn on an off date from the Slipknot tour at The Paramount in Huntington, NY…


Live Music – Vanna @ Warped Tour 2014

When you need some action with plenty of hardcore kicks, stomps, spins and throws, Vanna is certainly the band to give it to you.  Probably one of my favorite bands that I shot this year at Vans Warped Tour, they easily let themselves go wild on stage…


Live Music – The Ghost Inside @ Warped Tour 2014

The Ghost Inside, or The Bros inside are one of my favorite bands on this year’s Vans Warped Tour not just musically, but as people too.  I could name a dozen reasons why Jim, Zach, and Vigil are are super chill guys, but for now, check out the photos I took of them:


Live Music – Beartooth @ Warped Tour 2014

A band that totally blew me away on this years Vans Warped Tour with their unique stage presence and crazy intensity, was Beartooth.  At first, I was really surprised when I saw so many other photographers in the pit before they kicked off, but when they did, I could certainly see why…


Live Music – Every Time I Die @ Warped Tour 2014

Oh lord know I love taking photos of Every Time I Die.  It is quite nice.  So nice, I did it twice.  I’ve shot Every Time I Die a few times, but never with plenty of light to capture all their craziness and stage presence extravaganza antics…


Live Music – Stick to Your Guns @ 89 North

Its been about half a year since I last saw the boys in Stick to Your Guns, and I was about due to catch them again.  Headlining the 2nd day of the Today’s Mixtape Festival at 89 North in  Patchogue, NY, I once again had the chance to catch them tearing things up and taking names in the name of hardcore music…


Live Music – Stray From The Path @ Gramercy Theatre

It’s good to be home – if even for a few hours.  Halfway through the Fight the Silence tour with For Today, my dudes in Stray from the Path made a stop at New York City’s Gramercy Theatre.  With an always enormous reaction, the boys from Long Island brought it back to the city streets…


Live Music – The Ghost Inside @ Best Buy Theater

Usually, I don’t like the first image of my post to be a black and white – but I decided to make an exception for this shot of The Ghost Inside, because its a shot that means quite a bit to me…


Live Music – Cancer Bats @ Bowery Ballroom

Once again, it’s the motha fn’ Cancer Bats.  This time, opening as main support for Red Fang at Bowery Ballroom in New York City, these hardcore rockers are much more fun to shoot when they’re on a bigger stage…


Live Music – Glassjaw @ The Paramount

Glassjaw may not tour much anymore, but when they book a show, they make sure its a memorable one. Playing near their Long Island homes at The Paramount in Huntington, NY recently, the highly influential post-hardcore band painted the stage green…


Live Music – Kvelertak @ Webster Hall

The last time I caught Kvelertak, it was in a small, hot, packed room at the Studio at Webster Hall.  This time, they were at Webster Hall again, but in the much larger, much less jam-packed grand ballroom of Webster Hall – still making people go mad with their crazy black-rock-and-punk-roll Norwegian metal…


Live Music – Attila @ Gramercy Theatre

Attila came through New York City recently for their About That Life tour, and I was there to shoot them; in all their rapcore, deathcore, Suck My Fuck –core glory…


Live Music – Upon A Burning Body @ Gramercy Theatre

Everything is more brutal when its from Texas.  Well, at least Upon A Burning Body is.  The group of 5 well dressed gentleman, who melt your face off with some heavy deathcore riffings and rocking, passed through Gramercy Theatre in NYC recently as the main support for Attila…


Live Music – We Came As Romans @ Irving Plaza

After shooting them just a few month ago during Warped Tour, I had another crack at We Came As Romans during their Halloween show at Irving Plaza in New York City for the Tracing Back Roots tour.  After feeling like I didn’t get many good shoots, how did round two turn out?…


Live Music – Senses Fail @ The Emporium

Post-hardcore band Senses Fail traveled deep in to eastern Long Island recently for a show, not to far from their New Jersey homes.  While typically a club, The Emporium has live music, sometimes…


Live Music – Stray from the Path @ Revolution

Hardcore.  Home town show.  350 capacity venue.  SOLD.  OUT.  Excuse me for being excited, but these are guys that grew up where I did, and are now selling out shows.  Stray From The Path for the 3rd time this year…


Live Music – The Chariot @ Santos Party House

The Chariot‘s final New York City show.  Was I there for it?  You’re god damn right I was.  I wouldn’t miss it for the world…


Live Music – Glass Cloud @ Santos Party House

Lets all say hello my new favorite live band to shoot, the hardcore/metalcore/post-hardcore/deathcore/djent/mathcore band Glass House!  Really though, I have no idea what to “catergorize” them as, because they are like 10 genres in one….


Live Music – Anchorlines @ Candy’s Magic Pub

Anchorlines is an unsigned melodic hardcore band from New Hampshire that always gets a great reaction down here on Long Island.  As they are currently gearing up to a pretty big tour for them with Lions Lions, they made a stop near by me at a local pub…


Live Music – Death Ray Vision @ The Studio at Webster Hall

With Shadows Fall’s vocalist Brian Fair, Killswitch Engage’s bassist Mike D’Antonio, and a few lesser known, but just as talented folks, Death Ray Vision is born.  Essentially a group of friends from Boston, DRV seeks to bring back the old school hardcore style that has been shifted over these days in favor of metalcore/deathcore/post-hardcore and the like.  While shooting a live video of the band, I […]


Live Music – Every Time I Die – All Stars Tour 2013

“Another romp with the Buckley brothers and their 3 friends?  Don’t mind if I do!”.  That’s what I said when I had to chance to shoot Every Time I Die on the inaugural date of the 2013 All Stars Tour…


Live Music – Capture the Crown – All Stars Tour 2013

Making a trip all the way from Australia to the US to participate in this years All Stars Tour came metalcore group Capture the Crown…


Music Video – My Kingdom – Good Time

A few weeks ago, my friends in the band My Kingdom put together a cover for the compilation, Covers For a Cure: Volume 2. The song they chose to cover was the Owl City & Carly Rae Jepsen song,  Good Time.  They decided they wanted to do a party music video for it, and asked me to […]
