Fans cheer on Rivers Cuomo and Weezer at Bumbershoot 2010

Fans cheer on Rivers Cuomo and Weezer at Bumbershoot 2010

Bumbershoot in Seattle is always one of my favorite assignments of the year to cover. The energy, enthusiasm of everyone there, and the sheer magnitude of the talent shown on every stage is just incredible. As one wanders the sprawling Seattle Center grounds, music ebbs and flows from the surrounding stages. It’s a neat experience, and allows people to discover new music in a unique way. This year, I received an assignment from The FADER (www.thefader.com) to cover all three days of the music and arts festival. On average, I photographed about seven bands per day, shot 750 or so photos, and was on location at Seattle Center for 10 hours per day. It was a long weekend, to say the least!

I am thrilled to be able to share some of my favorite images from this amazing assignment. Thanks for checking them out!
