Reposting because hearing that a fan at @warpedtour would steal from one of the most earnest, DIY non-profits on the road is beyond heartbreaking.
There’s no corporate bullshit with @shirtsforacure - just a crew with a love a music, selling band shirts to help cancer patients in need.

100% of the proceeds from #SFAC band t-shirts go to a cancer patient in need - pick up a shirt at sfac.merchnow.com
What’s the best part about photographing the Vans Warped Tour? Getting the chance to capture moments like this.

Finally caught the #Manhattanhenge - the annual aligning of the sun and the NYC street grid #nyc
For anyone who loves music photography, swing by Lisa Johnson’s Decades tent at Warped this year. It’s incredible!

Truly an honor getting to photograph the opening night of the MONUMENTOUR with Paramore!

Saw this at a street festival in Redondo. I want it..
#flashbackfriday Through college, I wasn’t always certain I’d make it to graduation day. There were a lot of times I wanted to quit, but I was lucky enough to have professors who believed in me. Thanks to their encouragement, I never gave up.
5 years ago today, I received my college degree and finally started to believe in myself.
While I’m working on a lengthy op-ed about music photography, fully explaining the rights of both photographers and musicians… here’s my stance:
1. Music photographers should not sell images of bands outside of a publication (or press wire) without permission from the artist.
2. Bands should not use images taken by music photographers without permission from the photographer.
Yes, there are laws that counter both those rules (for lack of a better term), but let’s put aside legal matters so we can remember that respecting one’s work is important and should always be considered in any profession.
