NAMM 2009 Day 4: The Final Countdown

NAMM has been fun. Working these past few days brushing shoulders with some of the greatest guitarists ever has been a real treat for me. Dick Dale, Gary Hoey, Ulrich Roth, Eddie Van Halen, Greg Koch, and Eric Johnson just to name a few. Hung out with Nick and Joey, that was cool. I met up with my buddy Wes too! That was also cool :)

So here is your moment of Zen (TOMMY THIS MEANS YOU) with a photoset:

Here is the photoset link:

NAMM Nick Rich Part I

The NAMM conference is an interesting place. It brings a very diverse crowd of people that is pretty random. Rockers to Suits at NAMM and everything in between. Kinda makes you feel like a number.

I managed to run into some friends, Nick Rich and Joey from Age oV Reason. We walked around meeting random people that Nick knew while he banged on just about every fun looking drum he could find.



Anyway here is some photos:

Otherwise Wins $10,000 in Diablo's Cantina's Rock the Roof Battle of the Bands in Las Vegas, NV

The air was curious this night. Energy flowing through it like none other. This was not just another night of drinking and shenanigans for Otherwise. This was a night of success. After months of competing in various stages of this Battle of the Bands at Diablo's Cantina in Las Vegas, NV, the local Las Vegas Band walked home with $10,000 in cash and prizes. I was there to capture this momentous occasion with class and style.

So after drinking half a bottle of Sailor Jerry with Matt in the parking lot for financially obvious reasons, we decided to go inside this bar on the strip and drink some more:

Daughtry Blackjack at Red Rock Casino Las Vegas NV

So Mix 94.1 has commissioned me to photograph Chris Daughtry along with his band playing blackjack with contest winners from the radio. It was like 10:30 AM on a Friday, and after a semi-long night of partying and little sleep, I was ready to snap some killer shots of this semi-private event for a "semi-" popular star....yeah right...everyone and their mother knows who Daughtry is!

I could tell that the guys were totally just waking up and that having a camera in their faces wouldnt be too fun for 45 minutes so i took a rather large amount of candid shots using only available light. This photo is probably the only shot that i really asked Chris to pose for because i knew it would be a money ass shot!

I would have to say that being the time of day and the just waking up factor, the guys were pretty nice and understanding about having me shoot these shots. The nice pit boss guy who let us use the cards for the shot had Chris sign them since they were in this shot. He said he is going to use my print to put in a case with the signed cards for display...nifty!

Also here is a nifty candid of Chris thinking about his next move:

Here is the entire set of 105 photos from that event:
