The Graduate, new lens, Cole turns 20 something, and photo editor interview. BIG WEEK

OH MY, The Graduate put on another great show at Club Chrome in Springfield.  What a great bunch of guys.
I was unable to borrow the 16-35mm from work, so I was stuck with my 28-90mm variable aperture piece of crap, but still managed to get some great shots. 
I was super slow to edit their photos, but if they use them, they should be up soon.  
In the mean time, Evan Hunt just did some stuff for them, and it looks great.  
Check them out on myspace HERE, and I assure you that you will not be disappointed.
Also, they paid me in beer.

Thanks Matt.

Tim with noticeable beard sweat, ch-ch-ch-ch-check it out.

Also, I'm currently wasting a lot of my time with graffiti wall on facebook.  It's genius.

Also, I just blew about a grand on a 16-35mm lens, so expect some sweet pics later this week when I get it. 

I have an interview with The Vidette to become photo editor on friday, wish me luck!

..and everyone should be at Cole's B-day on friday.

What's Fair

What's Fair had their second concert ever at Club Chrome in Springfield on Saturday, and I was super impressed by them.  They were really good, and a lot of fun!  Check them out here.  I just finished pics for them, and they should be up soon.  

Asa Dawson (Ex frontman of The Junior Varsity) played some sweet drums and also supplied backing vocals.  

This was their second concert and they sounded amazing.  Expect more good things to come.

Wise & Burn

Like a beautiful Pheonix rising from the ashes of Midnight Fall and Park, comes a great little band called Wise & Burn.  This was the first show with their new singer from New Jersey, and he sounds great. They are all really cool guys and I urge you to check them out on their myspace right here.

This is Nate.

& I got to see Kris Roe, member of The Ataris, perform acoustic.  All in all a pretty good show, I had lots of fun. Traffic was terrible around Springfield and I got back to school around 1 a.m. and ate a calzone. D-E-LISH.

Ice Pigs Tournament

After working two 12 hour plus days shooting hockey, I am officially sick of the sport.  I started out strong, but by the 15th or 16th game, my arms and back hurt pretty bad.  Photography has never been so strenuous!  
Jayme and I had a good time.  We talked about Will Smith and all his glory while watching I-Robot.
We got all of our meals paid for while we were working in Rockford.  It isn't the greatest town in the world, but some of the local restaurants we went to were simply amazing.
After a long day of shooting, I just now got back to school and it is past 2 a.m.  It will be a long week ahead, lots of photography, so keep in touch. For me, it's finally time to get some rest.

I found some older pictures of my good friend Andrea while searching for images for my new site, and I came across this one.  It was one of my favorite pictures from our shoot.  She is away in Spain for this semester and we all miss her very much.  She and I will be meeting in Paris for hopefully, yet another, great shoot.

Burning up in the Blog-o-sphere

It's been about a month since I started writing in here.  I would love to know if anyone is reading these or not, or what people think.  Just let me know.

Side note: The official Alex Reside website should be up soon.  It'll just be 
I wanna keep it simple and professional.  My good friend Cole from Byeline Clothing is hard at work on it so check him out and check out my new site which should be up later this week.

PS: The library sucks, but so does my GPA.  It'll be a late night tonight.
