When I tell you this media/entertainment photography work is not fit for the weary… I mean JUST that! I’m STILL exhausted from my first 2015 V103 40th Anniversary “WinterFest” concert experience held at Phillips Arena in Atlanta… but excited to share all the exciting highlights with Tyrese, Keith Sweat, Nelly, a surprise appearance by Johnny Gill and more!
My day didn’t start with the concert… I spent all afternoon at the Georgia Dome photographing at the 2015 Celebration Bowl… and then headed straight to the concert from the game. Thank goodness it was just a walk across the pavilion and I didn’t have to pay twice for parking. Needless to say, I was already a little fatigue. But to my surprise… I made it through the entire concert which ended around 1:30ish! Oh my goodness there were so many “I give Up moments” because I also had to get back home, spend another few hours editing and get the pics submitted to Getty Images. But you what?!?!!… the concert was so awesome and entertaining… there wasn’t an empty seat in that arena. And the energy of the everyone in the room kept me going 🙂 Kudos to V103 for a spectacular night of GOOD OLE R&B music & performances.
Check out a few pics from the line up:
For the first time, I felt like REAL paparazzi… LOL! I chased so many folks down you would think I was the police. I was sitting backstage taking a little break when all of a sudden… Tyrese appears out of no where! I mean it was just that fast. I said oh *&^% , jumped up and stumbled to get my camera for the shots. I think he heard & saw me because he got big chuckle out of it.
Sending a VERY SPECIAL thanks to V103 for the invite. Enjoy the pics!
