I was fortunate enough to make it out to Indio, CA this year for my first ever Coachella Festival! Rolling Stone brought me out to cover the Saguaro Desert Weekender (one of the many off-site parties surrounding Coachella), an amazing pool party complete with DJ sets, lots of booze, and special guests each day.  You can see a full gallery of the photos I shot there on RollingStone.com, HERE.

Essentially, I shot the party during the day, and then ran over to Coachella to shoot the headliners. Here’s some of my favorite highlights from the weekend..

On-stage with Girl Talk.

The moment when you realize Paul McCartney is dancing next to you, and taking an iPhone selfie.

Standing next to Girl Talk on-stage when Busta Rhymes made a guest appearance during his set.

Met up with the guys from NOLA’s Preservation Hall Jazz Band, backstage during Arcade Fire’s set.
