NEWPORT FOLK 2019 in PHOTOS
Shot for the NEWPORT FOLK FESTIVAL
After 7 years of photoing Newport Folk, 2019 was my first year to shoot it for the official Newport Folk Photo Team!
Just look at that crew! It is a total honor to be a part of this Folk Family and I feel the history of it with every step around the festival grounds.
This year was beyond epic and the gallery below features images of Kacey Musgraves, Sheryl Crow, The Highwomen, Maggie Rogers, Dolly Parton, Kermit the Frog, Judy Collins, Trey Anastasio, Jeff Tweedy, Liz Cooper & The Stampede, Hozier and more! And if I had to pick a favorite image from 2019, it would be that headline image of Liz Cooper & The Stampede. It was one of those moments where I knew it as soon as I clicked the shutter…
This was also my first year shooting entirely with a Nikon D850 and the camera is just bonkers! Paired with the 135mm f/1.8 from Sigma, it just might be my favorite combination ever for getting unique onstage portraits. Check out the Maggie Rogers photo two down and the one of Danny Clinch (🙌) a little bit further in. And that’s only at the medium resolution setting. Wow.
THIS YEARS SETUP: Nikon D850, Nikon 14-24mm 2.8, Sigma 24mm 1.4, Sigma 35mm 1.4, Sigma 50mm 1.4, Nikon 85mm 1.4, Sigma 135mm 1.8.
Other highlights of the festival, Judy Collins singing Both Sides Now with Brandie Carlile. Dolly Parton singing I Will Always Love You again, with Brandie Carlile. Kermit the Frog singing Rainbow Connection with Jim James. Another amazing year to say the least!
Now I hope you enjoy some images from Newport Folk 2019!
