Switchbitch Records/Studios | Website

A few weeks ago, Mike the owner of Switchbitch got in touch with me and asked if I'd be interested in helping design a new layout for his record label and studio website. I was happy to help and we knocked out the whole thing in one weekend. Not too shabby, right? Switchbitch has some artists and affiliates that you might be familiar with if you've seen my past work, like The Venetia Fair and Flannel Mouth. Check out the site and give the Switchbitch artists a listen!

New Camera Body

It came! Earlier this week I decided that I was going to get my dream camera. I've been saving up for over a year and thought it was just time. I also got a Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 lens to act as my 'kit' lens. Very excited. I just figured that it takes one opportunity or big break and I want to be ready for it. This is the level I want to be at.

Victorian Halls, The Venetia Fair, and Flannel Mouth | Concert

I went up to Chicago to see some awesome bands: Victorian Halls, The Venetia Fair, and Flannel Mouth. I've seen them all before, they're all great performers, so needless to say, I was pumped for this show. Another perk is that I know all the band pretty well (that's an understatement for Flannel Mouth, who are high school buddies of mine), which meant I got pretty much free reign to take photos of the bands. I just took my Sony Nex 7 along, since it's small and has been doing amazing at the concerts I use it at.

 Up first was Flannel Mouth! They've come so far from when I knew them as a whole different name haha. They're excellent musicians, you should definitely keep an eye on them.

Up next was The Venetia Fair and I love seeing these guys perform. They're insane in the best way possible. Even if you aren't fond of their music, you'll love their stage antics.

And closing the show was Victorian Halls. I always love the energy they bring to shows! They've got quick, catchy beats and great lyrics.

All these bands have made a stop in Peoria before! Flannel Mouth is from Peoria, actually, so be sure to check these bands out when you can!
