Phosphorescent solo performance at Field Trip! 02.10.15  
who the hell is Phosphorescent you might ask? well, i'm very glad you did! i first became aware of them when our friends at Sharkpig produced a video for a track called A Picture Of Our Torn Up Praise off the first record. that record was a really nice indie rock record but he really knocked me over with his album To Wille which is a record filled with lesser known interpretations of Willie Nelson songs and it is sublime.

since then matthew has released 2 spectacular records Here's To Taking It Easy & Muchacho. in my opinion the guy just defies logic and continues to get better and better with each release. i have seen them 3 times live and each has been a mix of beautiful versions of their own songs and a stunning mix of covers by artists as eclectic as John Prine, Vampire Weekend, George Jones, Leonard Cohen, Willie Nelson, Arthur Russell alongside traditional folk songs. the shows i have seen have always included a portion of the evening when matthew plays a few tracks solo and, for me, that is the part that really resonates (i'm a sucker for a troubador)! anyway, i am really over the moon about having him. i think it will really be a very special evening.

Lazers & Blazers 2015 02.09.15  
For those of you who don’t necessarily consider yourselves photography aficionados but still love to attend the infamous revelry of Lazers & Blazers, this year we’ve got a new option specially for you: a 2-day Vacation Music Pass.

A new environment allows for new possibilities. Lazers & Blazers, freed from the stifling neon purgatory that is Las Vegas, has been stretching its legs; inhaling the salty air; rearing offspring; and, most importantly, evolving. Spurred on by its symbiosis with Photo Field Trip, Lazers & Blazers is in the process of evolving from a mere dance party into a multifaceted, micro music festival.

But before you shut your laptop / throw your phone across the room / fog up your google glass / smash the monitor of your Gateway 5000, let’s be clear that this is not a “festival” in the sweaty, overcrowded, superficial, poorly-engineered, horde-of-wailing-manbabies sense. We’re talking about intimate, specially-curated live performances in ways you’ve never seen them before. Well-known artists, but in a unique setting that engenders a unique presentation. What better place to induce such a performance than an environment already brimming with artistic energy and community, an environment that elicits and fosters creative expression in its truest form. Photo Field Trip is the perfect place for Lazers to evolve and diversify. Don’t worry though, the unrivaled insanity of a dance party under the stars will still be at the core of Lazers & Blazers. But in addition to that tradition, we always want to be moving forward, providing the opportunity to expand your mind and be part of something that hasn’t been done before.

For those of you particularly interested in this aspect of Photo Field Trip, we’re offering the 2-day Vacation Music Pass. You’ll check in Saturday evening and check out Monday after breakfast. In between, you’ll dance your ass off at Lazers on Saturday, attend this year’s live show featuring Phosphorescent (solo), on Sunday, participate in games and activities, and bask in the creative forcefield amongst hundreds of artists. There are only 20 spaces for this option, so if you’re interested, jump into the fold soon. It’s a welcoming community if there ever was one - just be warned you’ll probably photographed a few hundred times, so watch out.

Thank you to Squarespace

INDIA - Just Read 02.06.15  
Last fall, Field Trip India brought together an unusual assemblage: children from an orphanage in rural Rajahmundry, and a small group of unassuming photographers from around the world. If we thought we were going to document culture or to make beautiful images, we were thinking too small, too self-contained. My time at the orphanage created an image in my mind that couldn't be contained in any photo: an opportunity to visualize my heart again - to see beyond myself. Sitting on a concrete floor with those kids, I was transported right back to my 12-year-old self, to my own experience as an orphan; yet here I was simultaneously present in a moment of indescribable kinship. We started our journey as observers and photojournalists, but ended our travels totally inspired and motivated to make a difference.

Those kids are the reason why I'm participating in this campaign to raise funds for the orphanage. If you have no interest in looking through the photos, you can skip them - they are just my attempt to capture a feeling that was much more than the sum of its parts. They are the personal piece that I could take with me. The important thing is that you know about this campaign, that you have the opportunity to offer a little bit of yourself to a community that needs it. Please click here: teamrajahmundry

Although we spoke different languages, we were present with them in ways that language need not inhibit. As you sit there in the room, they touch you - but secretly, sneaking in the touch. If you open your arms to give a hug to one child, three more fall into the embrace. And beyond touch, there was music: dancing, singing, sharing a joy much deeper than words. In addition to basic needs, our hope with this campaign is to provide the kids with resources to explore these joys of music and creativity.

Field Trip is a community that gives back. The money for Field Trip India came from the first Photo Field Trip, and we hope to create a never-ending loop of opportunities like this. Thank you for sharing this with me, and thank you for supporting these children.

If you would like to see the rest of the images, you are more than welcome to look through them here.
If you would like to see the rest of my personal images from the trip (and you have an ample amount of time on your hands), you are more than welcome to look through them here.

But most of all, if you have the capability to donate to this wonderful orphanage, please do so here: www.gofundme.com/teamrajahmundry

a recent wedding recording 01.26.15  
here is 2 hours from a recent wedding i did with BASH PLEASE, OUR LABOR OF LOVE, SHARKPIG, & YEAH! RENTALS up north at Durham Ranch. it was one of those nights where the stars aligned and things just went right from beginning to end. even the parents were still dancing at the end of this set (which says a lot because i wasn't really playing the safe stuff). enjoy, download, share, repeat.
