Waterparks by Janet Eckles

Back in November, my friend Lindsay and I made the trek to the Blue Moose Taphouse in Iowa City to catch the Waterparks show. This was my first assignment for House in the Sand, a music publication based out of Germany! There was no photo pit for this show, which I wasn’t aware of beforehand, which proved to be a fun challenge!

Lauv by Janet Eckles

I caught Lauv at his show in Des Moines last October. I lauv (haha) that he was sporting a Rick and Morty sweatshirt!

Spoon by Janet Eckles

Last summer I was able to shoot Spoon when they were here in Des Moines. This was my first time seeing them live, and I am so grateful for the opportunity!

Chvrches at Hinterland Festival by Janet Eckles

Chvrches are one of my all time favorite bands. I got to see them for free in 2015 at the University of Iowa and had been eagerly awaiting their next release so I could see them again. That opportunity finally happened last Friday at the Hinterland Festival in Saint Charles, Iowa. This time, I got to shoot the show and write a review. Read my review of the show for Stars and Scars here.

Basilica Block Party by Janet Eckles

2 weekends ago I had the opportunity to shoot a few acts during Basilica Block Party, a two-day festival in downtown Minneapolis, for the publication Stars and Scars. This was my first time attending BPP, and I hope to attend (and shoot) again next year! Pictured are: Fitz and Tantrums, The Revolution, Flint Eastwood, Judah and the Lion

Big Country Bash: Day 2 by Janet Eckles

I was approached by First Fleet Concerts to shoot Big Country Bash, the local country festival, this year. The festival, held at the Avenue of the Saints Amphitheater in Saint Charles, is two days worth of country music, food trucks, and camping. While I'm not usually a fan of country music, shooting the festival was so much fun and an incredible opportunity! Pictured below: Sierra Annie Band, Tucker Breathard, RaeLynn, Aaron Watson, Midland, Dan and Shay, Brett Eldredge.
