ALEX IS IN TOWN // SETH PLAYS IN A BAND // CARS AND FREE TACO BELL

WHAT A WEEKEND. 

My suuper good buddy Alex from Kansas City showed up at my house on friday with his new Motorcycle. Needless to say I was extremely hyped, and was even more hyped when I saw the beast he was traveling on. Alex is in the progress of taking a multi state journey on his new motor bike. I couldn't be more hyped for my dude (as long as he makes it back in time because we have a wedding to shoot) because I know Alex and his capabilities and I'm very certain that he will document the trip perfectly, so I gave him a Gopro to make sure he gets EVERYTHING. We spent a little time in the studio talking about the journey, shooting some photos, and making an intro video. I'm fucking hyped. Stay tuned for updates on Alex's trip! 

My buddy from work Seth plays in a band. A fucking good one. I had no idea. Seth asked me probably 2 months ago if I would come to pops and shoot his band, naturally I said yes.

We rolled out east to pops. I had never been there and didn't really know what to expect. I had also never heard Seth's band before, so again I didn't know what to expect. After catching a couple of looks at the interesting characters in the parking lot we gathered right away that this was a metal show. Thank god the air conditioning was on full blast.  Me and Alex sat around a little bit while we waited for Seth's band to come on, it was worth the wait. (ok so we only waited for one band, but still) they murdered it. I was in awe and couldn't stop smiling as they drew a crowd and performed flawlessly. I had never shot a band before, So i'm not really even sure that any of my images are good. But I still had a blast.

After we stuck around a little bit, we headed down the street to Columbia Illinois where Firestone was putting on a meet and greet car show. My buddy Nick was out there representing Diode Dynamics and a few other friends were out there hanging out. I was pretty exhausted so I didn't shoot nearly as many photos as I should have, but still had a good time and got some free Taco Bell out of the deal so I can't complain!

2 5am nights, way too much alcohol, not enough sleep, a car show, a metal show, and an empty wallet later here's some images for you.

CHEERS FOR DOPE FRIENDS, GOOD MUSIC, FREE FOOD, AND GOOD TIMEZ
