You don’t take a photograph, you make it.
— Ansel Adams

Asa has been part of the house photography teams, both on the photography and editing sides, for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Stagecoach Country Music Festival, FYF, First City Festival, CRSSD Fest, Splash House, Odd Future Carnival, and VIVA! Pomona. He has documented concerts for AEG/Goldenvoice throughout the greater Los Angeles area, and festivals across the country.

Music and photography have always played major roles in Asa’s life, and he has a great love and appreciation for the connections between the two. His work explores a world which is deeply rooted in sound, translated into a medium which is strictly visual. He strives to capture live events in a way which conveys the feelings and emotions of the moment.

I hope you enjoy my work as much as I’ve enjoyed making it.
