The pinnacle of my concert photography adventures last year - the time I got to shoot @ in Council Bluffs.
Quick little story: I actually met @ once about 10-11 years ago, right here in Des Moines.
I was hanging with some friends at the old House of Bricks (RIP) when this dude came in and sat down at our table.
Turns out, he's friends with the husband of one of my co-workers. Her husband is a local radio personality, @.
I didn't know who Corey was at the time - I had been completely ignorant to the two massive bands he fronts and the awesome catalog of tunes that he's responsible for.
So, when my buddy asked Corey if he could take photos of his new Michael Jackson tat, I was slightly taken back.
On the sidelines, I said, "Dude... Why are you taking photos of this guy's tats?" He say, "You don't know who this guy is, do you..." He explained, so and I instantly felt the need to go check out @ and Stone Sour.
Fast forward to the present time, and they're two of my all time favorites.
In fact, shooting Slipknot's concert at the Iowa State Fair is one of (if not the) biggest goals I have for 2019.
Friends, help me make that happen!
