Photographing Outside Lands 2019

I had a lot of fun photographing Outside Lands this year.
I've attended Outside Lands before and have shot Instagram photos for it.
But this was the first time carrying all of my pro camera gear and taking photos.
How was it??
The music was amazing.
And I got to see some really amazing fashions and photograph them.


It was a whole lot of fun!

2019 Dipsea


I love photographing the Dipsea race, especially the start line in downtown Mill Valley.

People stretching to get ready for the big race.

Or have their photo taken at the start line.

Winning runners are announced at the start line.

And then head out of downtown...

as the fans watch.

Then its time to climb the Dipsea steps!

There is the first staircase.

Which the runners then sprint around a bend...

to find another staircase.

Some runners also no longer can take part in the race and are remembered with a memorial on the path.

Metallica's Lars Ulrich surprises fans at SF Food Bank



Metallica drummer and Bay Area resident Lars Ulrich made a surprise appearance with Metallica fans who volunteered at the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank in San Francisco, Calif. on May 22, 2019. The band’s nonprofit All Within My Hands Foundation encouraged fans to volunteer at 50 food banks around the country.

Before the fans arrived Ulrich was shown around the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank by Executive Director Paul Ash.

The fans, who came to volunteer, were the 150 lucky chosen to help out at the event.



It was pretty amazing to see them all working together to tackle the huge project.  It was quite a feat!

After saying hello Ulrich also took a group photo with the fans.

Bay to Breakers 2019

Once again it's time for that only in San Francisco event: Bay to Breakers.
I covered it again for the SFGate, and we wanted to capture all the energy, zaniness, and incredible costumes on display at the road race.



It is one of my favorite events to photograph.
It is an event that expects you to get involved.
But there are plenty of spectators as well.

You never know what you will see...



Make sure to be responsible...
and have some fun!
