Last year I worked with Brett Gurewitz and Epitaph on a photo project for Bad Religion's newest album: New Maps of Hell. The photos I shot around Los Angeles were used for the Deluxe Edition of the album.
The project was really fun and I really enjoyed working with Brett and the folks over at Epitpah. I just got around to photographing the album artwork and booklet. You can check out the work below:

Keeping up with tradition, I photographed Coachella last weekend. This time around I shot for Wired, URB and of course, my blog. As I mentioned in a previous post, I also wrote the Official Coachella iPhone application for Goldenvoice.
I had a great, albeit busy, time at the festival this year and took about 50GB of photos and 10GB of video. If you look through some of the Coachella VRs, you will see me in about half of the panoramas shooting from the photo pit.
Here are some of the photos I shot:

Made it to Coachella yesterday around 5pm. Got our RVs situated and our base camp set up then took a walk through the field and camp site. Here are a few photos to get you excited for Coachella:
A string of balloons blows in the wind above a row of tents in the Coachella Camp Site on Thursday night.
The Do Lab's new look includes a plethora of shipping crates and a wooden trough fountain, which they estimate will use up to 7,000 gallons a day.
The field is nearly empty for Paul McCartney's rocking sound check.
People from all over the world travel to Coachella, many of them camp.

For the past few months I've been spending all my evenings and weekends working on two big projects: the Coachella iPhone App and the Cartifact Map Portal. I am really happy with the results and ecstatic that I am not currently working 14 hour days and weekends!
I've been doing web programming work for Coachella and Goldenvoice since 2005 when I wrote the Coachooser, a online scheduler where concertgoers could choose who they want to see. As soon as the time-slots were announced the Coachooser then allowed the user to print out their schedule for the event. I have programmed the Coachoooser each year since then.
This year I pitched Goldenvoice on an iPhone application for the festival. They finally gave me the green light a bit over a month ago. Considering that it was my first iPhone application I think it came out really well. The Coachella iPhone App has been up on the iTunes store for about a week and has been downloaded thousands of times. It was hard work hammering out this application in a month, but the response was worth it.
I enjoyed the hard work, but I'm looking forward to enjoying my evenings and weekends again!
