Earlier this summer, I had the pleasure of working with the wonderful pronoun to capture the climax of her new music video for "wrong." She describes the inspiration behind the scene in Clash Magazine:
"Sometimes being an independent artist / label in a majors world seems impossible. It's frustrating and makes me feel defeated and isolated. At my lowest I turn to my friends, colleagues, and in this case, the artists on my own record label that I started (Sleep Well Records) and they remind me that what really matters at the end of the day is having fun and trying your absolute best, together."

Public, Ohio's latest band on the rise, hit the road with Jesse McCartney on the Better With You Tour earlier this summer. While the crowds may have entered not knowing the pop-rock trio, they certainly became fans by the time their set wrapped up. The group performed tracks from their first EP "Let's Remake It" and second release "Sweet Lemonade" as well as yet-to-be released single "One That I Want" and the consistent crowd favorite, a cover of Britney Spears' "Toxic."
Post-show, John Vaughn (guitar/lead vocals), Matthew Alvarado (bass/backing vocals), and Ben Lapps (drums) stayed until every newly minted fan was able to get a photo and chat with the band.
On a personal note, it's been wonderful watching this band grow, and know that the best is yet to come with these boys!
Last summer, I had the pleasure of taking part in Refinery 29's 29Rooms experience in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I brought along my Canon 70D and my Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 to capture the exhibit with my pals, Megan and Jane.
Now, one year later, I'm happy to share my photos with you. It was so fun to dive back into the edits with one more year of Lightroom experience under my belt. I'll pop in a couple of before and afters too!
Our first stop was a room meant to mimic a womb -- complete with headphones with a heartbeat.
Up next was an open concept area in conjunction with Planned Parenthood.
I had the pleasure of joining the pronoun crew for a leg of dates throughout the northeast including Jersey City, Long Island, New Haven, Lancaster (with Basement, Citizen and Souvenirs), Brooklyn and Philadelphia (with Citizen, Angel Dust and Oso Oso). Scroll down to see shots from each city, onstage and behind the scenes.
On May 31, SHAED (Chelsea Lee, Spencer Ernst, and Max Ernst) took over the beautiful backyard space of Crest Hardware in Williamsburg, Brooklyn for an intimate set. Lee's powerful vocals along with the Ernst twins dreamy production made for the perfect soundtrack for a balmy spring evening. The set also featured special guest snny whose yet-to-be released collaboration with the trio was a standout of the night.

Atlanta-based artist Demo Taped (AKA Adam Alexander) turned the Bowery Ballroom into a full blown dance party when he opened for Amber Mark. Check out the shots below and keep up with the artist on Instagram.

My first tour will always hold a special place in my heart. Here's to many more stints on the road.
