Killing A Camera

Braid

You may be wondering what Killing A Camera is. After all, this is still basically my personal portfolio. Over time, however, I seek to make it more than that. For the longest time people would ask me, "Andrew, where can I find these photos online?" and I would reply "Oh, you can find them on my website... www.andeewells.com. That's AndeeWells with two E's... W-W-W-DOT-A-N-D-E-E-W-E-L-L-S-DOT-C-O-M. The two E's aren't in the Wells part. Replace the Y with two E's. Did you get it? Would you like for me to say it again? You don't understand? Aren't you listening???" So I decided to drop my high-school nickname in place of something better...

Light Years Record Release Show

My good friends in Light Years recently released their new record, "Temporary", through Animal Style Records. During their tour with Turnover and Malfunction, they stopped by their hometown here in Cleveland to release their record to the local crowd. Before the show I shot a few photos of Light Years for an upcoming publishing which I will share later. I'm really stiked on how the photos turned out! Opening up the show were the good buds in Dead Leaves, The Greater Gatsby, and I Love You, I Know. The show was tons of fun and the new Light Years EP is great. I highly suggest checking it out. You can see photos from the show after the break!

Citizen / You Blew It! / Slingshot Dakota / Heart Attack Man

I made the crappy west to east trek out to the Grog Shop in order to see my pals in Citizen, You Blew It!, Slingshot Dakota, and Heart Attack Man. It was great seeing Citizen playing their first headlining gig after watching them work their butts off for so many years. As always, it was a fun time watching You Blew It! have so much fun while playing. Hearing Slingshot Dakota talk about dropping everything in order to make music their life was super inspiring to me. I love when people follow their passion and do what they love to do. Heart Attack Man, three guitars deep, melted the faces off of unsuspecting youngsters. I unfortunately missed True Love. I was really upset with myself over that...
Check out the photos after the break...

The First Wedding - Jacklyn & Lou

After years of taking photos of bands – both live shots and portraits, I finally made the leap into shooting brides. Most people work their way up as a second shooter, gaining the experience and hours working under a seasoned wedding veteran, but when I was asked to shoot this wedding I couldn't pass it up. I knew I had it in me to do a great job after years of quick shooting skills in dark clubs and stages across Northeast Ohio. I had shot only a handful of weddings as a second shooter as I was learning (and I feel really bad because I don't think I did the best job at that point...) but I stepped up. I was able to shoot my first wedding on my own with Jacklyn and Lou and I am so happy that this was my first because the couple, their family, their friends, and the location were all amazing. I had so much fun documenting their big day and I hope that it shows in the photos below. Please enjoy these photos of Jacklyn and Lou!
