Asa has been house photographer and photo editor for:

  • Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival

  • Stagecoach Country Music Festival

  • FYF

  • First City Festival

  • CRSSD Fest

  • Splash House

Asa has documented concerts for AEG/Goldenvoice throughout the greater Los Angeles area, and festivals across the country. He is also’s Editor At Large for Hard Rock/Heavy Metal.

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.
