Tyler McCollum at The Rustic Tap

As some of you know, I am working on a certification through Austin Community College for Music Business Management. More about that at a later date, but what has been really awesome about going back to school and taking classes, is that I get to be around musicians and people who are passionate about the music business. One of my classmates in my Concert Promotion class is the bassist for Tyler McCollum and invited us to their show at The Rustic Tap a couple of weeks ago. I was already going to be in the area photographing another band, so I jumped at the chance to go watch his band play and photograph a few photos.

I enjoyed the show, I haven’t been to a Red Dirt/Texas Country concert in a while, so it was great to attend and hear an awesome sounding band. Make sure to follow Tyler and the band on Instagram and Facebook to see where they are traveling to next! They put on a great show, so check them out! Also, check out the photos I shot from their set.

Three Guitaristas at Graham Central Station

Last Thursday night the Guitaristas tour featuring William Clark Green (Guns Up), Sean McConnell and Randy Rogers made an appearance at Graham Central Station in Pflugerville. It was an awesome night full of amazing singer songwriters! Including special appearances by Brian Keane and Josh Abbott. My goal for this set of photos is to show how much fun artists have together. This scene is such a great scene to be a part of and I love the “bromances” involved! It was such a fun time and I hope the photos show that!

I hope everyone has a very blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year! Remember to stop by and hopefully see my year in photos! 🙂

Rock On.

Calm.

Happy Thursday! I wanted to share this photo as a sneak peek. I’m so busy with work and often times generally overwhelmed and so I’ve been making myself find ways of relaxation and calmness. I’ve been documenting it as well and I thought I would share this photo with you until I’m finished editing. This photo when I look at it, makes all my stress just disappear. I think because it reminds me as a kid when I would lay in the grass or swing on my swing in the front yard, I would lean back, close my eyes, look into the sun and just breathe. Sometimes with all the stress, anxiety and other issues I deal with on a daily basis, breathing can be a difficult task. This picture helps me remember the fun times I had in my childhood. Hope you like it and look for the full album soon!

P.S. Look for me on the sidelines at the Texas Tech vs Baylor game! I’ll be the one with a camera standing next to Kliff the whole time 😉 hahahahahaha. JJ. But, I really will be on the sidelines photographing the game, I apologize in advance for the amount of Instagram photos that will be on your feed. I have never been to Cowboys…errr… AT&T stadium, so I’m just a WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE bit excited! WRECK BAYLOR!
