Intro by Mike McKinley
State of Mind's photographers covered over 100 shows and festivals in 2010. Not only did they document a range of diverse acts‚ but they captured the spirit of the music and event brilliantly. I feel like our photographers do more than get the shots -- you look at their photos and you know what it sounds like‚ you know the vibe‚ you know the smell of the room. They tell the story with their camera. Here are the photographers included:
Richard Gastwirt -- visit his Stage Shooter Facebook page. His photos are of the Black Eyed Peas‚ Furthur‚ Matisyahu‚ Flaming Lips‚ Santana‚ My Morning Jacket‚ and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.
