I love everything about music. From the people who create to the late nights to the pressure of getting that unique photograph.

Here are my top 50 (in no particular order) photos that I have taken of musicians.


Sarah Jane shot in the middle of nowhere outside of Nashville


Ghostland Observatory during one of their amazing laser light shows (wish they were still playing shows!)
