Last week I got the opportunity to photograph one of the most promising new movements in youth culture, Girls Rock Camp.Â Girls Rock Camp Madison is an intense, one week day-camp for girls ages 8-18. Campers of all skill levels learn guitar, drums, keyboards, bass and vocals, form a band, write a song and perform at the end of week for friends, family, and hundreds of screaming fans - Girls Rock Camp is great because itÂ recognizes the potential of every young woman to be a strong, talented, creative and empowered individual while providing a safe space where all girls rock. I have been photographing their showcases for a few years now and I finally have gotten around to write a blog about it. If you would like to learn more, send your child or if you wished this was around while you were young, no worries - they have Ladies Rock Camp as well - visit their website here.Â
Anna VogelzangÂ and Dietrich GosserÂ will be hitting the road together this summer on tour, so they contacted me to get some promo images of them together. We met at Mickey's Tavern - a place where I have seen both Anna and Dietrich countless times, and spent a few hours hanging out and taking photographs.
