GLENDALE, CO - MARCH 12: Denver Barbos vs Santa Monica Dolphins at Infinity park in Glendale, Colorado on March 12, 2016.

GLENDALE, CO – MARCH 12: Denver Barbos vs Santa Monica Dolphins at Infinity park in Glendale, Colorado on March 12, 2016.

Saturday’s are for rugby. Over the last three years I’ve spent almost every Saturday in the spring and fall on the pitch in Glendale shooting rugby. I haven’t blogged about it or spoke about it much. I’ve kept it under the radar for the most part and I can’t tell you why. The Glendale Raptors as an organization have been amazing and very easy to work with. Their dedication to growing the game in Denver has been awesome to watch. In an attempt to actually blog more, I’ll be posting up photos after every game starting next week. The season started a while ago so the first two months of the season will be put in digest form. Thanks for looking.

A little over a decade ago I had tickets to see Incubus at Red Rocks. I had made plans with friends to go, worked on saving money to drive from South Dakota down to Morrison for a few days and attend the show. Through a series of unfortunate events, I was convinced that I didn’t have the money and had to back out at the last-minute only to check my bank account the day of the show, well after my friends had left for Colorado, to find my bank account padded by several hundred dollars. I still kick myself for not going to the show. Luckily they recorded it for a DVD and I get to see my friends sitting in the front row having an amazing time…

Fortunately Incubus brought their radio friendly sound back to Red Rocks last night and for 15 minutes I had one of the best seats in the house and they brought two of my favorite bands with them. I wish I would have been able to stay for the entire show but the downside to shooting shows professionally is a very late night to meet a very early deadline in the morning.

More photos and a full review can be found later today over on Reverb.

Thanks for looking.

Slipknot brought their insane live show to Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Wednesday night. The masked clad rockers marked their first performance at the historic mountain amphitheatre in 15 years with a blistering set. Lamb of God, Bullet for My Valentine and Motionless in White opened the show. More photos (maybe, eventually?) over at Reverb. Thanks for looking.

Photos: RugbyTown 7s

leave a comment »

Over the last three years, I’ve been covering rugby as the official team photographer of the Glendale Raptors Rugby Club in the suburbs of Denver. Its been a rather fun and rewarding experience that has gotten me into a different mind-set and given me an opportunity to do something different and fun. Every August the club hosts the Serevi RugbyTown 7’s tournament which brings in teams from all over the country and several countries to play the speedy version of rugby.

Thanks for looking

Photos: St Vincent at Denver Botanic Gardens

leave a comment »

St. Vincent Perform at Denver Botanic GardensThere are a few artists that I look forward to shooting. St Vincent was high on that list. Here live shows have always looked really cool and really fun to shoot. I have to say I was a little disappointed but it may have been more of the venue than the performance. It’s a cool venue to see a show but can be a very limiting as a venue to shoot a show especially with an artist like St. Vincent. Someone so loud and theatrical, having to turn down and play in the round, makes for an interesting challenge. I made a few frames that I like but will have to wait for another club tour to see the full, fun and loud show. More photos and a full review can be found here

More photos after the jump.

Thanks for looking.
