Holy moly! I just won Best Music Picture of the Year at the GAFFA Magazine Photo Awards 2018! I am speechless and my brain is spinning, I cannot believe it. I am so happy, so surprised and humbled by this. My picture of Anderson .Paak flying won Best Live Photo and also won the overall Best Music Photo of the Year! On top of that, my picture of the wonderful crowd from a Princess Nokia concert won Best Crowd Photo!

Listening to music, being at shows and photographing music has for me taking on a different meaning this year. It is a way I have dealt with emotions and grief over the loss of my father. It is also a needed escapism at times. Music photography has become a deeper thing for me this year, and I have poured so many hours into it. This is encouragement to keep going for sure.
Two very big congrats on these awards. Well deserved, both are spectacular. Could not have timed the Paak shot any better with a hundred tries. Bravo!
Thank you so much Greg!
