Toubab Krewe Carnavalito @ Pisgah Brewing :: 07.14.2012

Shooting concerts is always fun, but when the venue is an outdoor mini-festival at a local brewery and the headliners are schoolmates, it feels more like shooting a friend’s wedding reception in their backyard. Good beer, great people, and even better music makes for a winning combination every time.

6th Annual Americana Burlesque & Sideshow Festival

What can I say about this year’s “Americana Burlesque & Sideshow Festival”, but “Wow”! This shoot came up as a last minute gig so I only caught the second act, but it turned out to be great fun. Already looking forward to next year’s ABSFest!

Several weeks ago I was once again privileged to document the 3rd annual {Re}HAPPENING at Lake Eden, the site of the historic Black Mountain College. This art incubator is best described as follows:

The {Re}HAPPENING is part art event, part fundraiser and at its root, a community instigator. Bonds between the artists and the historically rich space are created and strengthened throughout the weekend. New collaborations produce work that expands the ability of each individual, combining talents, strengths and ideas in the tradition of BMC.  It is a challenge for artists to balance private time in the studio with public time in collaborative environments.

It’s always a pleasure to work along side these artists in such a rich and inspiring environment. Here are some of my favorite shots from the evening.

The annual Fiesta Latina festival took place yesterday in downtown Asheville at Pack Square Park. The celebration featured entertainment, music, food, dance classes and more. The Latin-fusion group Xperimento headlined the event and Whitney Moore and Montuno finished out the evening with sultry salsa.
