The House Party Tour Photos – Part 1

The House Party Tour was an adventure. It was basically The Spring Fever Tour headliners playing right before A Day To Remember and then The Wonder Years opening it all up.

I was out working for A Day To Remember, however they were nice enough to allow me to work with Pierce The Veil and All Time Low as well. This was a first for me, working for three different bands all at once on one tour- but I had to give it a go. I wouldn’t know if I loved or hated it until I gave it a fair go.

Now that the tour is over I think I can say I won’t ever being doing that again. At least not officially. I am okay with working for one band and shooting for the others when I have time. But I missed a lot of things I could have gotten if I had just focused on one band. In the future I will keep this in mind. I always put 100% into everything I do in life. And being overwhelmed a sleep deprived never allows me to do that. I don’t want to rush the thing I love and I don’t want to force anything I am so passionate about.

Video of me rambling about the tour over all the images from all three blogs combined. Scope it if you want. If you don’t please continue.


Here are my favorite shots from the tour, and some of my favorite moments. If you want to see the other thousands or so of images we posted, please check out the bands’ individual facebook pages. Enjoy. I do.
