Getting a Little Sentimental... Los Angeles Concert Photographer

"You capture her spirit so well"

These are some of the greatest words I can be complimented.

I had the pleasure of photographing the first-year Thornton Popular Music students' final performance last week. These performances are some of my favorite gigs to photograph. What made this one so special was the presence of the students' parents. Throughout the year, these parents have seen my pictures of their kids pop up on facebook and on this blog. I didn't think anything of it, but I had multiple parents come up and express their gratitude for my images. To have a parent-- someone who's nurtured their child for over 18 years-- tell me that I capture his daughter's spirit in images means the world to me.

I seek to capture the essence of a person in my images. I want to capture the energy in a room, the moments onstage. This year has been great, but not without being surrounded by an amazing family of musicians who have adopted me as one of their own :) I am so blessed to have been embraced by this community. Thanks to the Popular Music Program and Chris Sampson for keeping me around!

USC Thornton Popular Music Program SENIOR SHOWCASE! Los Angeles Concert Photographer

Hey Everyone!

As many of you know, the USC Thornton Popular Music Program had their Senior Showcase at the legendary Troubadour venue on Sunday, April 21st. The show was EPIC! I did a quick overview with images here.

This is the first graduating class from the popular music program. These students have spent 4 years studying, learning, playing, writing, and living their hearts out at the BEST school in the country- USC. I've had the pleasure of working alongside them for my 2 years here, and I can say that they are some of the sweetest, most energetic, inspiring and downright talented people around. As a tribute, I'll be blogging each of the featured bands/ seniors, giving each their own day/ post.

Stay tuned, and feel free to comment, tweet (@kylienic13), follow me on facebook: Kylie Nic Photography, and let me know what you think!

Photographically yours,
