Image Gallery: California Roots - Day one

This festival is the reason why I got into concert photography. In 2014 I was sitting at home watching the Caliroots live stream, I told myself that I would be in the photo pit at the 2015 festival. Without any music photography experience, I began photographing bands at local bars. I practiced until I was confident enough that I would get my media credentials.

Caliroots 2015 blew away all expectations.  Here is a glimpse of the event through my lens.
