Sunset on Coachella, Coachella 2013 -- Indio, CA

Check out all my Coachella 2013 Photos here.

Just finished up a fantastic weekend shooting the first weekend down here at the Coachella music festival. I got to photograph so many new and interesting bands. Mostly I spent the entire time shooting with my good pal Robert Scoble. Check out Scoble’s photos on his Google+ stream. Ron Sheridan has a Pixt wall up on Coachella as well here.

Thanks so much to Sam Levin and JBL Audio for getting us down here and for getting us media credentialed. Thanks to BorrowLenses for equipping us with some heavy duty gear. Scoble brought down a 600mm and a 400mm that we used to shoot the bands. Mostly I shot with a Canon 70-200 f/2.8, but those big guns came in handy a lot of time too. They were *tough* to lug around all weekend long, but worth it!

Thanks also to Seagate for the great storage for holding thousands of photo files for us. I’m testing out one of their new wireless hard drives (more on that later!).

I’ll write more about what shooting the weekend was like soon, but am going to work on getting a lot of photos processed first. I made some great new friends and got to hang out with some pretty cool people. Sam Levin, Chris Voss, Jen Friel, Daniel Brusilovsky, Ron Sheridan, you guys rock! Getting to hear Greg Kihn play Beatles and Stones songs for us in the RV on the way down was a definite highlight — man that guy can sing. Greg’s also got some of the best stories you’ve ever heard about rock and roll. Great getting to know you on the trip down Greg!
