The Sean Meyers Memorial Extravaganza: Norman Rockwell

Norman Rockwell is a band that knows how to get down. The band, formed in the damp warmth of poorly ventilated and heavily cramped open mic known as the Soundry, is the combined force of Josh Johnston, Ben Hirsch, Nathan Read, and the late great Sean Meyers. Sean, who unexpectedly passed away this past November, was memorialized this past Friday at The State Theatre in Falls Church, Virginia. Sean, the baby faced and magnanimous host of that open mic was […]

The Sean Meyers Memorial Extravaganza: The Family Plots

This past Friday I had the pleasure of watching some of my amazing friends perform at The State Theatre in Falls Church in memory of an amazing guy, Sean Meyers. Sean was the bassist of one of the performing bands, Norman Rockwell. I knew Sean originally from the Soundry in Vienna, Virginia – he hosted a great open mic there for years before it migrated to Epicure Cafe in Fairfax after the Soundry sadly closed its doors. Sean was an amazing and […]

Marisa and Geordi, Manassas National Battlefield Park

I went on a short walk at Manassas National Battlefield Park this weekend with Marisa and Geordi. The place was absolutely littered with photographers! We timed the trip nicely with the sun – there’s nothing better than natural light, especially during Autumn. All photographs were made with a Canon 5DII and the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L II lens at ISO400. Visit J.Yi Photography on Facebook!

Sheri Miller, With Hearts in Her Eyes

I recently coordinated a shoot with model Sheri Miller (MM# 2556797). We wanted to have an outdoor shoot to take full advantage of the unusually pleasant weather and decided on a light fashion/editorial concept. After drafting out a few shots and setting a date we went for it! You can click on any of the thumbnails for a larger version. All images were created with a Canon 5D mark II and a Canon 70-200 f/2.8L II lens. We were able […]

Jammin’ Java, May 8, 2012 – Norman Rockwell, Derek Evry, 4ontheFloor

I had the pleasure of shooting Norman Rockwell for their Jammin’ Java show with Derek Evry and the Minnesota band The 4ontheFloor. It was an awesome show, Norman Rockwell gets better and more polished with each show they play. Derek Evry’s set was great as well and the touring band from Minnesota closed the show with a colossal bang. I’m going to keep this one short, here are the photos (you can click each photo to enlarge), enjoy! Norman Rockwell […]

Norman Rockwell… Rocks Well

Last night I had the pleasure of covering Norman Rockwell‘s show at The State Theatre in Falls Church, Virginia. One of the finest bands local to the Washington, D.C. area, the headliners were joined by fellow local acts The Independent and Mokey Doris. If you haven’t made it to a Norman Rockwell show yet… you really should. Click here for an epic gallery of Norman Rockwell from the show. I shot the show with my Canon 5D Mark II. While […]

Lucy’s Music Pit

I had the pleasure of photographing a few bands last night during an event at The Soundry in Vienna, Virginia. Lucy’s Music Pit boasted an astoundingly impressive 17 local acts that played from 6 pm on Saturday the 6th to 6 a.m. on Sunday the 7th. For those who have yet to visit The Soundry, go! I consider it the friendliest and most supportive hub for musicians, artists, and their fans in the area. Their staff is incredibly friendly as […]
