I photographed Common last year at a concert in Park City. I must say, being a concert photographer would be an incredible job. The perks are awesome! I didn't get front row tickets, I got ONSTAGE tickets! It was so fun and so intimidating. I was just waiting for him to look at me and ask what I was doing there! Luckily, that never happened and I was able to stay for the whole show.








Another great perk is that you usually get to bring a friend with you. I asked my big sister to come and help me with equipment and to keep me safe : ) She agreed and ended up being my favorite subject of the night... Everyone in the club was envious of her dance skills. Just look at the second picture down...all eyes were on her.





Common was great, but the highlight of the night was the dancing Frenchman in the street. Somehow he got two perfect strangers to join him in the can-can. He then proceeded to do the worm and sing a song about David Hasselhoff.





Needless to say, it was a great night. For various reasons.
