Charity Drag Show

I photographed a Drag Show on campus recently. It was the most fun I've had shooting something in a long time. The people were all great characters, which provided for great photos. Just talking to each individual and taking the time to care about what they care about creates a trust and allows them to be comfortable and act normal. I followed Western freshman Isaac Bond through his transformation into Lillian Cumfortable. He said it takes approximately an hour and a half to get ready.

Here are some other photos from the night:

Lovin' me some RJD2

I got to photograph the RJD2, Helio Sequence and Yogoman Burning Band concert a few weeks ago. It was AMAZING. I haven't photographed very many concerts so this was a really good learning experience for me.
