Hex's 24/7 comes in on time and under budget

Somehow, Chris Dorn and company managed to pull off 27 bands over the course of Thursday evening, not just the 24 promised. (Well, 26 bands and a guy who danced with purple dildos in his hands, anyway.)

See all my photos here.

Wedding Photography

I may have set a new record going more than a month between blog posts.

I will fix that.

This past weekend, for a change, I did not shoot music, but rather shot the wedding of a friend. It was more exhausting work, but it sure pays better.

It took place at Thomas Lowry Park in Minneapolis.

I'm very happy with the results, even for my first venture into wedding photography. If you have 11 minutes, here's a slideshow animation with music.

If you don't, the photo set is on my personal Flickr account here.
