Kopecky Family Band is a talented bunch of musicians from Nashville. I had my first experience with them during SXSW 2013 when they were part of the line up with Delta Spirit. Squarely in front of Kelsey Kopecky, she let me play her bells on one of their last songs. It was an amazing experience and they’ve carried a special place in my heart since then. When my C3 Concerts newsletter arrived, they had a contest to win tickets to see them play inside at Stubb’s. Of course, I entered. Thankfully, I won tickets! The same day, Samsung delivered their new Samsung NX300 mirrorless camera. I’ve been selected with 24 other photographers and bloggers around the country to shoot with this camera as a part of their Imageloggers program. You’ll be seeing an official announcement soon. Here are my first photos with the NX300. A wildly large thank you to Samsung for selecting me, C3 for having me win tickets and Kopecky Family Band for being as charming as ever.
