Happy New Year; Remember Jones @ Asbury Lanes

First and foremost, Happy 2015! ¬†I “took the holidays off” except I was actually¬†silently working away on my¬†new portfolio, now hosted on PhotoShelter! ¬†Also, I’m staying in Philadelphia (insert celebration emojis here)! ¬†I have truly fallen in love with this city once again (aside from the winter — that part still sucks) and I am excited to explore the music scene here, as well as in my hometown of New York City. ¬†Even though my home base will be here on the East Coast, I haven’t given up on the West. ¬†I already have two trips booked out west for 2015: back in my second home of Los Angeles (Feb. 5 – Feb. 13) and hitting up Seattle in late August. ¬†I have recently become fascinated with urban exploration, so if there are any photographers in those areas interested in linking up, give me a shout!

And now onto the actual content. ¬†I¬†finally had the pleasure of shooting my good friend, extraordinarily talented human Anthony D’Amato on January 16th. ¬†This gig came on the heels of Anthony debuting his new stage persona, Remember Jones, at the end of last year (check out his bang-heard-round-the-world cover of Van Morrison’s “Caravan” here please and thank you). ¬†D’Amato has been involved in the music scene with his bands The Live Debate! and Anthony D’Amato and the Emancipation Congregation (also… YouTube it). ¬†The performance I covered last week was part of the Light of Day Festival benefitting the Light of Day Foundation. Fun fact: the¬†e¬†lectric set broke venue records by having the largest amount of people on the Asbury Lanes stage at one time. ¬†After you check out the photos, download Remember Jones’ cover of Smashing Pumpkins’ “Bullet With Butterfly Wings.” ¬†All images shot on the¬†Canon 7D with the EF 85mm ∆í/1.8 USM lens.
