One Happy Accident

I'm not gonna lie, sometimes the best ideas come from a happy little (or big) accident. I was attending a show at Studio 7 in Seattle, as a regular Joe, excited to see In This Moment, live and loud.  I had with me my Canon G12, point and shoot camera, to document some memories, nothing fancy.  I randomly snapped away during the show and was experimenting with a slower shutter speed, for no other reason than because I like motion blur.  At one point I was taking a photo of Maria and a near by photographer's flash went off at the same time.

The result:


This mere coincidence showed me something beautiful, sparked my thought process and thus, my project Mosician was conceived.

Mosician: Motion in Musicians The concentration of my work explores Musicians and the motion that surrounds their music. I utilize the natural motion to describe the energy, passion and emotion of each musician through long exposure, zoom and panning. The available performance lighting creates unpredictable patterns and portrays mood, which can be somewhat unique to each band or artist.
