Brandon Boyd w/ Sons of the Sea at Irving Plaza by Luis Ruiz

Brandon Boyd of Incubus played a set featuring songs of his solo albums with his band Sons of The Sea at Irving Plaza. Brandon Boyd is an amazing performer, letting the music take over his body while he jumps and sings each lyric. Truly one of the artists out there since day one I've followed and looked up to. Enjoy the pics!

Imagine Dragons - Photo used in Entertainment Weekly and the cover of Hard Rock Hotel : Las Vegas by Luis Ruiz

Last year was an exciting year for me thanks to one of the biggest bands of 2013 Imagine Dragons using one of my photos for two magazines. One which was featured in an advertisement in Entertainment Weekly Magazine. It was an honor being featured there since this was one of my favorite magazines growing up! This ad promoted the upcoming arena tour for this year in 2014.  The other magazine was for Hard Rock Hotel : Las Vegas Magazine. This was a great surprise since it was mailed to me on christmas eve! So two big accomplishments that I'm very proud of and it's only the beginning of good things to come this year in 2014!

Mother Feather at Mercury Lounge by Luis Ruiz

Last December I had the privilege of photographing both Mother Feather and Kendra Morris which were playing at Mercury Lounge. While arriving back from a day of shooting with Kendra Morris I made my way back to the venue to get some photos of Mother Feather getting ready for the show. They put on a helluva show. Definitely one of the best live shows in NYC if you haven't checked them out yet. Enjoy these pics!
