As a sit at my computer and write this, I’m thinking so much about the Mayan calendar… the day is still young, but there is no end in sight. I don’t think there will be…but just in case…I have compiled some of MY favorite images of 2012.
There are a lot of the same artists depicted here, but the year of 2012 was one that was defined by traveling with them!
Please note, these images represent not only the artist, but also the imagery and the moment the picture taken.
Finally, I would like to say a special thanks to the artists, bands, crew members and management teams. I had the time of my life traveling and documenting these moments of 2012, so thanks to: Slash band and crew, Five Finger Death Punch band and crew, Trivium band and crew, Slipknot band and crew , Lamb of God band and crew, Halestorm band and crew, In This Moment band and crew, Deftones band and crew, Machine Head band and crew, Duff McKagan band and crew, Zakk Wylde band and crew, Mastodon band and crew, Hatebreed band and crew, Day Above Ground band and crew, Adelitas Way band and crew, Jeff Varner, Jodi Emond, Andrea Yee, Nick John, Andrew Stuart, Kristen Muldereg, Graham Martin, Corey Brennan, Justin Arcangel, Diony Sepulveda, Ryan DeMarti, Maria Ferro, Konstance Louden, Jackie Kaiser, John Reece, Danny Wiemer, Brent Hamilton, Danielle Howorth and Westley Anderson To the models: Ivy D’Muerta, Kirsty Lingman, Morgan Renee, Brittany Denaro, Katherine Hartley, and Brooke Knight.
