Tell everyone a little bit about yourself! I consider myself to be both a
melancholic and an optimist. I like having the balance of both. I have a pet cat
named Phoebe and I love her to death. I am obsessed with cats. One of my
favorite things to do nowadays is going out and seeing and supporting local
and/or touring bands and discovering new music. I love movies. My favorite
movies to watch are avant-garde and artsy. I like movies that get people thinking.
I am pretty shy, but once you get to know me, I can be a very bubbly and hyper,
and easy going person.
How long have you been with BurningStars.net: Joined the team in May 2017.
What do you do for BurningStars.net: Take photos, write music reviews.
What got you into Photography? I've always been interested in it. I don't
remember when I decided to start studying and practicing photography, but i've
only been at this for almost a year now. I take nature and street photography and
sometimes I arrange photoshoots with my friends, but lately, I've been practicing
taking pictures of live bands, using my best friend's two bands as a starting point.
What do you like doing the most; photographing bands, interviewing bands or
writing about the shows? I like writing reviews, but I mostly enjoy
What type of camera do you use? I use a Nikon Coolpix L840. I plan however to
get a new camera hopefully in the next couple of months.
What Program do you use to edit your photos? Sometimes I use Photoshop or
Lightroom. I use Paint to add on my watermarks.
What is your most favourite concert experience? October 2014 when I finally got
to see Placebo for the first time ever in my life. I took my best friend at the time
with me and weeks before the concert, I gave her a mix CD of all of Placebo's hits
and current songs and when the night of the concert came around, she had
pretty much all the lyrics memorized right off the bat. We saw the opening act
The Moth & The Flame for the first time and we fell in love with them instantly.
Finally, when it came time for Placebo to take the stage, my legs were trembling. I
couldn't believe my hero of five years, Brian Molko was gonna be right in front of
me as well as Stefan Olsdal and the rest of the gang. It felt like a dream come true
and I was enthralled by how energetic and enthusiastic they were on stage. I
spend every once in a while wishing I could relive that night again.
