Next to photography, music is my passion. But mixing the two has always been a bit intimidating for me. There are so many challenges of shooting in the club environment: dim lighting, cords to trip on, and balancing the need to get the perfect shot with the need to avoid annoying the audience. But I’ve felt for a while that it’s time to take the steps to overcome my timidness and work alongside those challenges and see what can come of it.
So I got in touch with Kristen May, an amazingly talented friend of mine whose musical and vocal skills have amazed me each time I’ve seen her on stage throughout the past eight or nine years. Last night was certainly no different. I’m incredibly gracious that she allowed me to photograph her set. Her new songs are fantastic. Do yourself a favor and check out some of her new solo tracks here.
