How long have you been in photography?
I got my first DSLR camera and shot my first show in July 2013 so just over 8 years!
How/when did you first discover your passion for photography?
I always enjoyed taking photos with disposable cameras as a kid but I realized it was a passion when phone cameras became common and I could take terrible images all of the time. The first photo I was ever really excited about was a show photo I took on an enV2 in 2009, it was so so bad.
What was your first concert that you shot for Billy Bob’s?
My first show here was Josh Turner in November 2020.
What is your favorite concert that you have ever shot?
I don’t know if festivals technically count but shooting Barefoot Country Music Fest was incredible because I got to shoot so many artists I love in one place. As for regular concerts, any Midland show ever because their lighting and overall vibe is so fun to shoot!
Who is your favorite country music artist?
Texas country is so good but I’m from east Tennessee so I really love Appalachian country artists like Sturgill Simpson, Tyler Childers, Charles Wesley Godwin, stuff like that.
Are there any photographers who have inspired you and influenced your photog. style?
So many! I have met and worked with a crazy amount of talented photo and video people. The list could go on forever but Fernando Garcia, Andrew Quinn, Aubrey Wise, Blake Blancett, Ethan Kaiser, Graham Ladd, Reuben Long, Brent Lovell and Chris Willenbrock all do cool stuff with a camera that inspires me daily.
What is your favorite thing to do at Billy Bob’s Texas?
Trying and failing to learn how to shoot bull riding, eavesdropping on people’s drunk conversations and bothering any employee with an open office door all tie for 1st place.
What is your favorite thing to order from the Honky Tonk Kitchen?
Hands down, the Portobello Sandwich with a side of fries and ranch. All of the dessert is also to die for!
Any favorite songs at the moment?
Washington Lilacs by Zach Bryan
