I’m Crystal, a Virginia-based concert photographer with 15 incredible years of experience witnessing some truly unforgettable moments through my lens, capturing everything from intimate basement shows to massive music festivals. I thrive on the raw emotion, the sweat-soaked energy, and the connection between the artists and their fans, and I strive to convey those elements in every shot I take.
My work has been featured in various magazines such as Rolling Stone, Alternative Press, NME, The Chicago Tribune, Axios, NPR, USA Today, Aljazeera, Buzzfeed News, CNBC, CMJ Music, Digital Photo Pro, Decibel, Wonkavision, New Noise, Hypebeast, Think Progress, and Free Press Houston, among others.
In addition to my photography work, I’ve also spent the past 7 years sharing my knowledge and love for the art as a photography instructor at the college level. Teaching has been an incredibly rewarding experience, allowing me to inspire and guide aspiring photographers on their creative journeys.
