Check out these sick pic’s I snapped at the String Cheese Incident NYE celebration at the 1st Bank Center In Broomfield, Co! This year I was lucky enough to snag a ticket before the prices became outrageous and the show completely sold out! STI is a band that’s been around forever and I had always wanted to see live! So happy that my first task of 2013 crossed a DOPE JAM BAND off my bucket list! So very proud of the way many of these came out, but also, very open to the criticism of photographers with a far different style than myself. My definition of art photography doesn’t limit a good photograph to being as crisp and clear as though you were in the photo. I believe that many of the famous art pieces in the world started out as  distorted and twisted “screw ups”. This is important to keep in mind when viewing my photos as many of them I have chosen to blend contrast,color, and light as much as possible, opposed to trying to attain perfect clarity. PLUS…DO NOT ask me how HARD it is to party , dance, drink, and spin, while you’re attempting to take a good picture!!! JOKES!!!

Happy New Year from Thispicisisick.com ❤

POTW: 12.27.2012


School has been kicking my a$$ the last few months as well as a number of other things in my everyday life, this has made it hard to blog on thispicissick as much as I would like. LUCKILY my camera is fixed and after a rejuvenating trip back home to Austin for the Christmas Holiday I am excited to announce that THISPICISSICK is BACK and my adventures in bucket list music photography are back on the rails! Thanks to the homies at Grassroots Cali for hooking up an excellent FREE holiday party event where heady dready’s from all over came together for jungle juice, sexy pizza, lazers, & the FUTURE of Bass music , as well as,  wonderful discounts on merch from some of Colorado’s best local companies! This party made many proud as Casselmen’s was pretty packed  for a Monday night. Happy Holidays to all and enjoy my preview of the new photo style for 2013! My photography style continues to evolve and change as much as the world around us, with a little patience, luck, and a whole lotta love the new year will NOT BE ONE TO FORGET! Starting with my plans to take pictures at many events in the coming week and String Cheese Incident on NYE.   Many new and exiting things happening all around us and so many blessings to be thankful for! Cheers to you and yours this NYE and all year long,&&& remember… What you ENVISION you MANIFEST!

POTW- Citizen Cope @ The Fillmore

PHOTO(s) OF THE WEEK 10.9.2012

This weeks photos come from last Friday’s Citizen Cope show at the Fillmore! The incredible 2 set  private evening with the Memphis, TN  native Clarence  Greenwood consisted of a really good mix of his new and old music. This guy proved yet again his ability to groove with the crowd and touch the hearts and souls of his audience with his politically explicit lyrical genius. ONCE a Citizen Cope fan…ALWAYS a Citizen Cope fan ❤



POTW-September in Vail Valley

PHOTO(s) OF THE WEEK 9.26.2012

“Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.”

-Robert Frost

Photos from my trip to Vail last weekend!

Such a beautiful place in the fall ❤



POTW-The Malah @ The Unified Field: SONIC BLOOM pre-party

P H O T O(s) OF THE W E E K–>

This past weekend I had the amazing opportunity to go to the the pre-party for the much anticipated Sonic Bloom Festival held this summer in Georgetown, Colorado! The Malah a local groove-funk trio headlined the other side @ Cervantes Saturday night throwing down an absolutely face melting set. Although they had a competing set time with artist such as Octopus Nebula and Bluetech who headlined the ballroom’s main stage Saturday, these guys still seemed to have the high energy Jam-Electronica set style needed to draw groves of fans of all ages who might have otherwise been dragging their feet by the final sounds late Saturday night. All around these guys are definitely a group to start “following”! Chances are they won’t be playing such a small stage forever…enjoy! 😉
