It really takes a special talent to bring a performance to life, like the way Lindsey Stirling does. Her show at the great New York State Fair on Friday, August 23 was inspiring. Lindsey can play the violin flawlessly while dancing choreographed parts of her songs with dancers, and alone. It was a beautiful mix of dance, ballet and music. Lindsey performed many of her hits including “The Upside,” “Crystallize” and “Shatter Me.”
I see the music and love capturing moments of musicians when they are letting their emotions flow through as they perform. Capturing these raw moments is what it is all about for me. The connections I have made through the music and bands I love has been a foundation of so many friendships I have made through the years of doing concert photography. Two of my major influences are Peter Black and Jim Marshall. Their work has been a constant inspiration and always will be!
