Photos from Warped Tour 2014

I have done Warped Tour so many times. Well, a lot of times to me. I am going to go count the dates. About 136 days total. What the hell is wrong with me? No, but really – I love Warped Tour. I can’t do the whole thing anymore because it just doesn’t make sense, and I really don’t enjoy doing the same thing every day for a whole summer. But, it did enable my career so I will never be mad at it.

Usually Warped Tour starts about 3 hours from where I live, so I never have to worry about getting out the the tour itself.  I just hop a train and TA DA. Not this year. First stop: Houston, Texas. This meant I had to fly from San Diego to Dallas to Houston. So I did just that.  I was running on empty that morning, because the night before I had just taken a train down from LA after finishing up VidCon. Not a lot of energy left in me. So when I arrived in Dallas of course they told me my flight to Houston was delayed until very late that night.

I was determined. I said fuck that, went and rented a car, and drove my ass to Houston. I mean, it was only about 5 hours. However, I am not sure at which point in my life 5 hours became an “only” amount of time. That is a long fucking time! It’s like, two LOTR movies. But I did it. And I got taco bell in the middle, and filmed a vlog while I was driving, and took a nap in a parking lot because I was so tired.

I wasn’t in a very good mood all the way up to getting to Warped Tour, but once I got there it was great. So many friends, so many people I hadn’t seen in awhile.  I just walked around saying hi to everyone and got situated on the bus I was riding on. Then I got out my copter, Carl, and started flying it around cause I had to get my daily fix.

Seriously, Carl is my friend maker. Everyone wants to be your friend when you can fly a craft around. So I did that. Here is a picture of all the tour buses I snapped.

I spent Warped Tour differently this year. I had to change it up, otherwise I would have been bored. I mostly focused on my Onstage Portrait series. I had a lot of fun with it and that is why there are not many live photos in this blog; because when I shot live, I mostly shot for that series. So my photos this year are a lot more of people just hanging out. I hope you enjoy.

6/16/2014 – Amarillo, TX – Off Day

I rode with The Maine on our off day. They wanted to do a photo shoot and I was game. I haven’t worked with them in almost 7 years, and it was nice to see where they were at in their lives. Pleasure to shoot as well!

I did a photo shoot with ONE OK ROCK. I had a friend working with them and he introduced me to them. It was so different because they didn’t speak any English. I have never really done a shoot with someone who doesn’t speak English. Maybe they were so fucked up that they couldn’t speak English, but not really because it wasn’t a language they knew. That being said they were very nice, and I did two more shoots with them before the tour was over.

I met Miranda on tour in Mexico. She was up shooting videos for Vans Mexico. I really didn’t have much work to do that day, other than a shoot with Neck Deep, so we hung out and ate food and it was nice.

We had a day off in the woods with Kevin Lyman (Founder of Warped Tour), The Story So Far, Four Year Strong, Less Than Jake, Saves The Day and some of production. It was so much fun! We cooked out, hung out, went cliff jumping, got caught in the rain and made s’mores.

Off day, everyone is happy

Nate is from Anberlin. He makes delicious coffee every morning. I wish I could still drink as much coffee as I used to. Every morning I would go buy $1 worth of iced coffee from Nate, which ended up being like one inch of coffee. It was perfect.
