005 // LRS Fest

Last year, around this time, I got my first concert gig shooting a show for a band – for free – and did the same for many other artists throughout the rest of the year.

Music is my biggest inspiration; I listen to music to lift me up in my lowest times, make the best days better and, for the most part, every minute of the day. I've dreamed of working within the music industry, in some way, for the last few years. I can't sing, but I can make photos and do alright with filming, so I've done everything I could to get behind the scenes at shows.

This year I landed my first real photography gig within the music industry.

A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to photograph and film the LRS Fest – a new country music festival that will take place annually in Central Oregon – which included Dustin Lynch, Chase Bryant and The Voice's Raelynn. Have a look at some of the selects.
