Two months ago today I had my first "official" gig as a band photographer. I was able to shoot for Akron's own hometown boys in Red Sun Rising at the Cleveland House of Blues. Red Sun Rising isn't necessarily a band I have followed closely but my dear friend Ricky Miller who plays bass in the band was able to pull some strings and get me a press pass. Even though it wasn't the main stage at House of Blues, it was a pretty cool feeling to be behind the gates at the front of the stage and be allowed to snap away to my heart's content. The photos from that show are below; enjoy.
