Last night I got to photograph Conor Oberst at the Palace Theater. If you know much about me at all, you know Oberst is one of my favorite artists of all time. I discovered him back in 2002 when reading this article in the NY Times Sunday magazine. Imagine that! Remember the days of reading about music on an actual printed page and then going to a store and buying the album? Kids, things used to be so much harder.
But the discovery of his music was 1000 times worth it.
Then, in 2009, Jamie bought me my first digital camera and I smuggled it into a Bright Eyes show in Lincoln, NE (Oberst’s hometown) where he performed with another favorite of mine, Jenny Lewis. That was the first concert I ever shot! And the rest is history! (And no, I’m not showing you those photos! Ha! Horrible!)
You can, however, see the rest of my photos from last night’s show. They are over here.
And just one internet share today: A memo to Miami Herald employees from Marty Merzer, an old editor of mine, regarding how to cover a hurricane. A great read.
