Best of 2013 - Live Photos by Luis Ruiz

2013 was a special year for me in music. Covering the dreadful yet rewarding Governors Ball Music Festival in June, to trekking to Philly with friends to Made in America Festival. I had a helluva time on each shoot and working one and one with bands has been a highlight as well.  With a year full of more ups then downs I'm thankful to what 2014 can bring and thats hopefully more amazing music to cover and awesome people to meet along the way!  Enjoy! 

Governor's Ball Festival 2013 by Luis Ruiz

Early June I had the honor of photographing a three day festival in new york city. With Rain in the forecast and a huge park to walk through each day it definitely was an experience that changed me and a lot of photographers. After the rained cleared by day one... Mud was our enemy for the next two days. The challenges and obstacles we all faced with broken cameras, lost shoes in the mud all felt like a video game each time we set foot in that mud. After the weekend finally was over I looked over about 2000 photos and wanted to give everyone a little taste of what this festival was to me and in the end it was all about the music!

So here it goes..

Governor's Ball Festival 2013!

Enjoy!
