HAPPY NEW YEAR !
Now things are really heating up! The 8th day of Christmas is showing my favorite shots from the month of August. I was once again shooting at Pittsburgh’s #1 live music venue, Stage AE – as well as a few other familiar stages. Stage AE featured the second X Fest show of the summer which included the likes of Reel Big Fish, Anti Flag and Social Distortion. I even had the opportunity to take a ride (and have a few beers) with Reel Big Fish and a few radio contest winners on the Pittsburgh Party Pedaler.
After XFest came the Under the Sun Tour where we saw Eve 6, Uncle Kracker, Better Than Ezra and Sugar Ray. One of the other venues was First Niagara Pavilion which hosted the long awaited Foo Fighters show. Media photographers had to shoot from back at the sound board for this show, but I was able to pull off a bunch of great shots. That’s enough yapping I guess. Time to get to the photos. There were so many favorites that I may have gone a little overboard.
ON THE 8TH DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY CAMERA GAVE TO ME…

There were tons more that I could have chosen as favorites. But I just didn’t want this post to dwarf all of the other ones. Thanks for keeping up with my posts.
