Festivals always feel like photolog summer camp to me because I get to spend the day hanging out with a bunch of photographers I haven't seen in a while. This year's BottleRock was no different in that sense. I got to hang out with familiar faces and met a few new friends too.
What was different was the amount of coverage I worked, since I ended up covering the fest for three separate publications, meaning I need completely different content for each one. I wrote a bunch of previews for one, then covered the actual event for two. I ended up doing daily photo recaps of live performances, a behind the scenes portrait series, a crowd shot slide show, and a weekend highlight list. It was a busy one but I'm happy with how all of my projects turned out.
Though my bestie Rebecca and I spent each day running around, we still managed to find time to catch some live music, get covered in glitter and dance around at the Silent disco.
Here's a few snaps Rebecca took of me working and a cell phone selfie from one of the few times we actually got a chance to sit down, because you know, we chose to document our adventure with cell phones and polaroids even though I had my camera on me the whole time.
