2 of 3 My favorite thing to take photographs of is live music. I love everything about it. It brings me back to my photojournalistic roots. There is no controlling the subject or the light. I love the feeling of being engulfed in the music, the energy, the moment. I was pumped to photograph this show with @rongallo and @hurrayfortheriffraff! @nurse_pain And I drove to Cambridge, we had a great dinner at the venue and then made our way in for the show. And then it happened. They took my camera at the door. They locked it up in the box office and I was bummed. I was standing bar side, and I just thought of my options. I could hone my cell phone skills, but they never quite do it justice. Maybe I knew another photographer there and I could shoot a bit with theirs. And then I thought maybe, just maybe Ron Gallo would be able to hook me up with a photo pass. I shot him a message. I offered what I could, which was a round of drinks for he and his band and a lifetime of photos for any photographic needs. I figured it was a long shot. Within a few minutes he got back to me and said, "l'm leaving you a photo pass at the front. Just give them your name." I showed the message to my wife and I was pumped. I saw Ron come out, I introduced myself, gave him a huge hug and we walked to the box office together to pick up my camera. I don't know what made him do a favor for a stranger, but I am certainly grateful and I will pay it forward. You're the shit, Ron Gallo. Thank you. ❤️📸🎸 .
