Phew, I just finally caught up on going through all my live shots. I think I don’t have time to keep doing it this way anymore.

The bands are happy to see their photos, and since they are able to copy the photos over to their MySpace pages my name gets around. My passion for concert photography was what made me decide to become a photographer and Supermarket Trashbin is what made me known. However, it might be time to move on. I still want to show my live shots, but I may have to pick the best few from every month or two, and make a quick flash gallery out of them.

March 9th, 2008

Lately I feel like I’ve been more busy doing graphic design than photography… but at least I can sneak photography into design!

It all started with posters for our dance show…
