So, I have been doing yearly “best of” round-ups of my work since 2007. Right around now is when I start to think about what to put in the running for the year… the only problem is, I never posted one for 2013. So, here goes, in no particular order: my very late list of best photos of 2013.
A band I waited a lifetime, almost, to be able to see.
A band on the cusp, playing their hometown. Well-deserved success stories like theirs are part of what makes this job fun.
Only was able to make it to one night of High Zero this year but it always provides something exciting.
Thicke pretty much was peaking at this festival, but it was fun to be there for it.
Kim Deal/the Breeders
Just love how much fun she’s having. As I recall, this was days/weeks after she bid goodbye to the Pixies. She seems plenty happy.
Had never heard of this band before this, but I love quiet moments at huge concerts.
I love the guy on the left.
He made fun of me from stage during this set.
This was an amazing shoot. They were really easy and fun to work with.
Call Girl of Cthulhu
Got to shoot a lot of stills and behind the scenes for this film, as well as the DVD cover. Really fun experience.
Maryland Film Fest Hotel Party
This was, I think, taken in Bobcat Goldthwait’s hotel room but the memory is hazy.
The Brony thing has gotten a little weird since this first con but I found them to be refreshing an earnest when I spent the weekend hanging out with them.
Ottobar Haunted House
I’d heard about this guy for years. A retired Baltimore City civil servant who dedicated his retirement years to getting completely tattooed.
For the truly curious, here is the pool of photos I picked from.
