One of our main goals is to capture the wonderful moments of entertainment through as many creative mediums as possible; photography, videography, written word and more!
I am a photographer from Orange County, California. I'm always on the lookout for the perfect shot, and have a passion for capturing moments that will last lifetimes.

Music, for me, is an escape. It allows me to forget about the craziness around me for a while and just get lost in the sounds. It can help me when I'm having a bad day to feel better, and it can make my good days even greater. Entranced Media only makes my love for music grow, and it's super rad to be able to share that love with the other awesome and talented contributors on here!
I love music because it's a place I can be myself. Mixing music and photography is also really enjoyable because both are things I love to take part in. Music inspires me to be a better person. I think it also just helps me realize that dreams do come true with hard work and dedication. Music keeps me sane.

Music has been in my life from a young age, and I've always been obsessed. At one point I thought I could find some musical abilities hidden deep within, but I never found an undying passion for any of them. After going to so many concerts in the last two years, I found my calling after seeing other photographers in the pit. Entranced Media has given me an outlet to be able to capture people's happiest moments at concerts through photography and videography. Other outlets I have collaborated with weren't as accepting and helpful as Entranced Media. This is a real home for music enthusiasts to see pieces about artists they love. I just really appreciate the opportunity to do what I love for this platform.

As an active music listener, I love attending shows and finding new music. Being a part of Entranced Media helps me be able to not only connect with other listeners through new music but to be able to share my own experiences with them, which is something super unique that I love. Music is something that I lack the ability to create, so being able to listen to it offers me a new perspective within the music community.
For me, music is my escape. It's gotten me through the good and the band, and it's brought me my best friends and favorite memories. To me, nothing beats hearing your favorite song. Music flows through us all, and even if I myself am not musically gifted, I want to create art that shows how I feel about it. I like working with entranced for this reason, as I am allowed to show my love of music through my own art forms.

Music and TV are my two favorite past times. I can remember the moments that solidified my love for both. In the summers of early high school, Two Door Cinema club and San Cisco were the first groups that made me more than just a passive listener. Now my favorite band is STRFKR. I first found out about them after I heard a song of theirs on MTV, which is also what made me want to be a show runner. I’m happy to be working with Entranced Media because they are reflective of the multimedia landscape that makes these connections possible.

Music is a way that artists can connect and relate to other people, and the way I've come to relate to music is as a creator as well. One of my passions is writing poetry and in the past I've had the opportunity of being in a band and expanding my written word to be accompanied with the complex sounds of musical instruments. I love that music allows for such a diverse expression of emotions and that anyone can participate, whether it's through creating or listening. Being a part of Entranced Media is giving me the opportunity to, once again, expand my written word and I'm looking forward to seeing where it takes me

Music really means a lot to me. I can’t think of a time in my life where I wasn’t in love with music. Writing is a more recent thing for me so being welcomed so warmly into this platform is amazing. Entranced Media gives me a platform to write and share my thoughts on the things I love. It’s the greatest feeling to be able to share my love for music.

Growing up in a world of music I was always struck by its spell. For me it's more than notes and rhythms and something more along the lines of my soul. As a photographer, audio engineer, producer, musician and artist i have devoted my entire life to music. Entranced helps me follow my passions and expand my musical possibilities. Not to mention all the cool people I've met because of it.

Photographer // Indianapolis IN
I am a freelance photographer based out of Indianapolis, Indiana specializing in concert and event photography. With my childhood love for music and photography plus the added influence from my mother (a Broadway Company Manager) and later from my husband (a live sound engineer) it only seemed natural to combine my passions and pursue my craft more seriously. I have been blessed with great opportunities to photograph fabulous performers and look forward to sharing my work and new adventures with Entranced Media!! Be sure to look for me in the pit at the next show...They call me "Pixie Dare with the Blue Hair"
