What do you say when it’s just you with the hottest rock band in the world? My assistant and I grasped for words but came up with the most important question - can we shoot from the stage, fully expecting to hear “no way - insurance issues”. We were shocked when the band was totally cool, welcoming us to join them onstage. Stevie Nicks was mesmerizing, SO beautiful and the coolest lady this kid photographer had ever met.”

Oh, hey, excuse me sir. You may not believe this, but I didn’t even see you standing there when I stopped here. I saw a Blue-grey Gnat catcher dart down into the weeds in that ditch right there between us. No, really, I’m serious. Did you see it? Know which way it went? No? Ok, thanks anyway. I’ll just move along now, thanks for the photo. It’ll be on tumblr, tell all your friends.
