Santigold Live At The Music Hall Of Williamsburg 1/17/12

Santigold Live At The Music Hall Of Williamsburg.
What an amazing show!  Santi White has an special gift which was apparent the moment she stepped on stage last night in Brooklyn, NY.  I've stopped gettin my hopes up when going out to see live shows as I always tend to be disappointed.  This was not the case with the Santigold.  The entire show was top notch...including the opening act Spank Rock
I'd have to say my favorite thing about the show, besides Santi White, was her two fierce dancers.  They really tore it up.  Look for some live footage on youtube and you'll see.  Oh and I forgot to mention that Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeah's made a brief appearance for the first song of the night.  What a treat.  Thank you Santi.

Here are some more photos and a video I took at the show:

Andy Kuncl By Ryan Obermeyer


Andy Kuncl By Ryan Obermeyer
In July I had the pleasure of working with the talented Ryan Obermeyer in Austin, TX.  It was such a fun collaborative experience.  This photo was shot in 100°F+ temperatures just outside of Barton Springs Pool...The section of Zilker Metropolitan Park that is free and where it seems a lot of folks like to take their dogs.

Here's a photo of Ryan as we are leaving the area where we shot:

It's amazing to me what Ryan is able to do in post production.  He has a background in painting, sculpture, and drawing and he creates his digital images using all these modalities. . . .well at least approaching his photographs as if they are paintings or sculptures.  I don't want to give it all away, but many elements in the finished photograph were added in post production.

I was a big fan of Ryan's work before we met and began our collaboration.  So, needless to say, I was and still am super excited about working with Ryan.  He has also created with/for many other artists/musicians that I admire...such as Imogen Heap and Milosh

Omg...and just as we were done with the photo shoot...just after we got out of the water...a water moccasin appeared right where I had been standing!  It was amazing.  I can say that because we were safe and not in it's way.  I took a video of it swimming along . . . so beautiful.  Here it is:

Cheers.
