Years and Years: Minneapolis by Liz Brown

Years and Years-4.jpg

My shutter exploded halfway through Years and Years’ set, so I’m particularly proud of these photos. After shooting, I was afraid I barely had gotten anything good, but as I hesitantly looked through the gallery at my hotel at 2am, I found some shots I am honestly proud of. I often get asked what camera I use, as if having the right gear can make or break your career. I always say the same thing: use what you have, what you can afford, and practice and practice and practice. I hope this gallery and the story of my broken shutter helps illustrate that point: it doesn’t matter so much your gear, but your eye and your willingness to keep going despite difficulties.

The photos after this text section are ones that were affected by the broken shutter. They aren’t the same photos I would’ve gotten otherwise and there were definitely moments I missed as a result of my equipment failure. However, they are presentable and much better than I ever guessed, and I am proud of them.

Borns : Chicago by Liz Brown

Between shooting sets, I went to back of the room (the only place with both oxygen and water), and saw a stranger, looking strikingly melancholy, dressed in white against the dingy venue wall. I paused, debated, then asked for a portrait and Kate (I found out her name later) said yes.

My second time shooting Borns in Chicago was again sold out. The fans in the front row had been waiting since 7am (doors opened at 6:30pm) and by the time Borns took the stage at 9:45, the room was electric. The last show was at a small club, so it was rad to see the same songs translated to a giant lit-up production (and also way easier to shoot!). Photos are all for Interscope--enjoy!

Billy Raffoul : Portraits by Liz Brown

This fall, I spent 3 days on one of Billy Raffoul's first tours. It was a blast spending time with these folks and I hope we get to do it again! In addition to shooting the shows, I took portraits two different days: Sunday in Omaha and Monday in Kansas City. On Sunday, the neighboring brewery allowed us to shoot inside and on Monday, we utilized the nearby buildings. Thanks to Billy, Alex, Sara, Justin, and Interscope!
