Although I consider myself a Street/ Documentary photographer, I love to cover music events.
I received a call from my friend Marc Hauser about helping out one of his pals with a shoot covering John Mellencamp at the Chicago Theatre.
Upon arriving at the Chicago Theatre I got the backstage pass and had my Q on me.
The night of the show and my senses are on overload. I hear the sounds of guitars being tuned, the nerves of the band before they perform. I love it. LIFE is happening, people are awake, and the show will begin shortly. I was thankful to have my Q, and we headed out and started coverage. I carried a Nikon with a large 300mm lens on a monopod since I was assisting. I shot these images with one hand the few moments I could.
