Musicians I’ve Photographed or Interviewed

 

In May of 2008, I joined the Carib Press (Los Angeles based Caribbean Press Magazine) team as a writer and photographer for the Entertainment section.  I always have enjoyed attending shows and concerts so I figured why not write about it and take photos to document them.  My good friend Carolioness was already the Editor and she asked if I was interested in making the best of being out all the time.  It was a great opportunity so I jumped on it and I’m so thankful that I have.  I have had amazing experiences and it’s opened many doors for me.  Not to mention, I get in to shows for free.  I have interviewed and photographed MANY of my favorite artists.  And let me tell you, festivals are enjoyed on a WHOLE other level when you are in the photo pit.  Let’s just say I pretty much see it all from up there and backstage.  Life has been good!  LOL  Here are some of the photos from various shows.  Unfortunately many of the shows that I have photographed required me to sign that they would ONLY be used for Carib Press so I am sharing what I can.  Enjoy, feel free to comment.  BUT PLEASE DON’T STEAL PICTURES!
