There's something about capturing that perfect take during a recording session, or wild fan interaction on video at a concert. In photography, getting that once in a lifetime, blink of an eye capture is what brings me the greatest joy. Below is a collection of select concert photos I have taken for the web publication Made of Chalk and directly for the artists. Photos range from Chicago to Columbus at venues such as Metro, Vic Theater, Subterranean and Lincoln Hall.
With over 400 different kinds of beers from nearly 200 brewers, there were a lot of smiling faces to capture. Recap of 2016's Festival of Wood & Barrel-Aged Beer below. Select photos featured in the Chicago Tribune.
