Cody Canada

When i have nothing to do i like to go back through some of my photos and just mess around with Photoshop and see what i can come up with. This is another version of a photo of Cody Canada of Cross Canadian Ragweed from the Chicago Country music festival (outdoors) i took in October.

The 2008 Chicago Country Music Festival @ Soldier Field.

Cody Canada of the band Cross Canadian Ragweed @ the Chicago country music festival October 12th, 2008. They closed out the festival on the Americana stage with the song "the boys from oklahoma" Wade Bowen and Mike Eli both sang a verse that they pretty much made up earlier in the day or right there on the spot. Later Cody announced to the crowd how much the band loves joe's bar in Chicago as Ed Warm was standing right in front of me.
Mike Eli of the Eli Young band @ the Chicago country music festival October 12th, 2008. I tried a different look for some of the shots i took that day. Removed some of the distracting background and added some interesting effects.

Wade Bowen @ the Chicago country music festival October 12th, 2008. Sunday was a great day, beautiful weather and Wade started out the day followed by the Eli Young band and then Cross Canadian Ragweed topped it all off with a great set.

something i have been meaning to do but just havent gotten around to yet

creating a blog to showcase some of my work, and to promote the shows i am at as a country music concert photographer. I am a huge fan of texas and oklahoma red dirt music. but living here in michigan does not allow me to photograph those musicians much so i photograph alot of nashville artists too.
