Texas Showdown Festival | Photos For Visit El Paso

Texas Showdown Festival | Photos For Visit El Paso

I’m totally playing “catch up” here on my blog – life has been full of a steady schedule of work, cooking dinner, cleaning, helping my son with homework, putting him to bed, tending after my boyfriend’s needs, then crumpling into an exhausted heap and starting all over.

I took these photos for my employer, Visit El Paso, while live posting at the Texas Tattoo Showdown Festival back in July. We came to the fest to foster an important relationship and open ourselves up to a new demographic – the young, edgy, metal & hip-hop loving folks.

The tattoo fest was a blast – my awesome beau joined me almost every step of the way: holding my equipment while I switched lenses, taking supplemental phone photos and bobbing his head right alongside me as the bands rocked it on stage.

We got to watch Drowning Pool perform – one of my favorite bands from my youth – but I’ll have to admit that the band sounded a little off with a different front man. RIP Dave Williams.

Keep in mind these photos were taken long before my recent Photography courses. Nonetheless, I’m digging the quality of the pics and I’m pretty sure my bosses enjoyed the results too!
