I’ve been Noise Pop’s head photographer since 2013, when the legendary Peter Ellenby moved to Portland and tapped me to fill his shoes. Each year I photograph the cover of the festival guide and also I’m responsible for hiring and managing an ever-growing crew of photographers. This year I brought on 15 photographers who covered 170 shows over a 7 day period.
This year the folks at Noise Pop decided to feature long-form content in the Noise Pop Festival Guide. They asked me if I would be up for a Q&A and I obliged. It’s not available elsewhere in digital form, so I’ve included tear sheets below. I’ve also included the cover of the guide, featuring Tune Yards.
