Last year, I received the Rammie Award for Best Pier Six Pavilion Photo of 2013 for my photograph of Ke$ha. I was so surprised and honored by this award and how it came as a trophy! So imagine how surprised I was to receive a tweet from Rams Head Group last month stating that I won the same award this year for my photograph of Gavin DeGraw!
Gavin DeGraw is such a fun artist to photograph! This was my second time photographing him, the first time being at Mixtape Festival 2013 in Hershey, PA. My concert photography has a separate home on the internet, on my co-owned music blog website Amped Up Aperture.
I received this year’s trophy this past Friday while photographing STARS at Rams Head Live. Words cannot express how honored I feel and how much I appreciate being a house photographer for Rams Head Group. I started photographing shows at Rams Head Live in Baltimore in September 2012 right out of college. Concert photography has been a huge passion and dream of mine, and I’m living it through working with Rams Head Group. Thank you for all of the experiences, Rams Head! I’ve experienced so much in my three years of photographing for Rams Head Group and I look forward to many more!
