I was lucky enough to be asked to shoot backstage and on-stage footage at a Hold Steady show in Brooklyn back in February. That footage has since been incorporated into a live performance video shot with four cameras, including mine, during the concert at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. The link for the video’s debut is at :: RollingStone.com ::
20 of my “behind the scenes” photos from the “Teeth Dreams” recording sessions can be found by following :: this link :: – Shot in August and October 2013 at Rock Falcon Studios in Franklin TN (just south of Nashville).
The latest in the “Views from Rock Falcon” video series I shot and edited for The Hold Steady is at the bottom of this article :: The Guardian UK.

I shot and edited this footage in Nashville in August and October during the recording sessions for the new Hold Steady album. More videos including interviews with the band and the producer will also be released soon.
G of GXU Images annually requests a “Fav 5″ list of local photographers’ five favorite shots taken during the past year. My group of five (errr, 10) can be seen by clicking here. As an aside, this photo of Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, taken after their sold-out New Year’s Eve show at the Jefferson Theater, was the very last photo I took in 2013. The show was a perfect ending to an encouraging year of recovery and improvement.
