That’s right, you get TWO guest blogs this week :)

Scott’s neck deep in a few different projects, so he asked if I would do a quick post and share a few shots from the last concert I shot. Luckily, the last time I shot, I had a double header and shot two shows on the same night.

First up was Béla Fleck & The Flecktones at Jannus Live in St. Petersburg, FL.


Béla Fleck, one of the world’s most innovative banjo players


Victor Wooten, regarded by many as one of the best bassists in the world


Roy “Future Man” Wooten (Victor’s brother) and his drumitar


Howard Levy, who returned to touring with The Flecktones last year, completing the original Flecktones lineup for the first time in 18 years

After The Flecktones show, I went down the road to State Theatre to photograph Underoath.


Spencer Chamberlain of Underoath

Since I didn’t get there at the beginning of the show, and this venue doesn’t have a barricade, I was shooting from/over the crowd.


Timothy McTague of Underoath


Christopher Dudley of Underoath


Spencer likes to whip his hair back and forth ;)

I was surprised that there wasn’t nearly as much moshing and body surfing at the Underoath show as there was at The Flecktones (kidding)!

All in all, it was a fun night at two completely opposite ends of the musical spectrum.

And, since we’re talking in twos today, I recently did a guest blog for my buddy Stanley Leary about the high we get from creating. You can check it out right here if you’re interested.

That’s it for today! Check back tomorrow for guest blog #2 :)
