This is one of my favorite street portraits I have ever taken in my life. I shot this at Outside Lands a music festival in San Francisco California. Well I was sitting there waiting for a band to come onstage, I pulled out my camera and started taking pictures of people, when I turned around this couple was hanging out and it happened so fast but he went in for a kiss, that’s when I picked up my camera and snapped this photo. It’s so in the moment and the timing could not be more perfect. I love the story the photo tells.

Outside Lands 2012, what an amazing show, I got to see so many of my favorite musicians of all times with some of my best friends. This trip was crazy, I flew to San Francisco just for this. I really wanted to see Metallica, Stevie Wonder and really everyone else there. I brought all my gear as always, but inside I had to make a choice, do I want to watch the show and fully sumerge my self into the music or do I want to photograph some of my favorite musicians of all times? The choice was easy. I would of love to capture all this rock stars on stage, but instead every time someone came to the stage I put my camera away, I wanted to enjoy this to the fullest and that I did. The only photos I really took was of my friends and of the people walking around in between stages going to see their favorite bands. Sometimes the moments are left to be captured by someone else and for me to simply enjoy with out having to think about anything at all… Spread the love peeps and Happy Friday…
