I had a blast at Life is Beautiful a couple weeks ago. Although, I was not official festival press, Missio (one of the bands playing the festival) hooked me up with vip and pit access during their set on Day 2. I brought my camera in all 3 days and shot what I could, otherwise. This was the first time in almost 2 years, where I attended a festival as an attendee (for the most part) rather than press. It brought me back to when I first started shooting music festivals - back to when I had to buy passes and sneak my camera into each festival to build my portfolio and eventually get to where I am today. I appreciated the attendee perspective that I think I may have forgotten over the last couple years as press. All in all, it was another amazing festival weekend, including great music, some super rad art installations, awesome people, great weather, and some killer after parties. Anyway, here are some of my favorite photos, as well as a video edit of this awesome weekend.
