BEST PHOTOGRAPHER NOMINEES BIO’S

George Duchannes is an Event and Musician portrait photographer based out of Southern California. In only three years of being a professional photographer he has been published in various online and print publications, including most recently two covers in Desert Magazine. Ceasar Rodriguez “I was raised in Oasis, CA. My love of taking photos has taken me to many places around the world. I love the complicity and simplicity of taking a photograph. I enjoy taking into account all the different elements needed to take a good photo, and find happiness when that goal is achieved. Every photo taken is an opportunity to learn something new. The simple act of pushing a button and capturing a moment in time that can be revisited and enjoyed by everyone brings a smile to my face. I don’t care what the subject is, if I find beauty in it, I will take a photo of it and share it with the world.” Chris Miller, past winner of the CV Music Award for Best Band Photographer shares, “My formula for a great music shot is equal parts emotion and light.” As a principal

photographer for Goldenvoice, Chris does much more than work a formula. Esther Sanchez’ philosophy: “Being a part of the coolest little music scene on the planet has not only been a privilege, but a wild ride. I can’t tell you how often I have said that... in essence, I spend most of my time as a photographer taking photos of my friends and nothing makes me happier. To all my friends in the music scene...you are all my muses.” Laura Hunt Little: “My interest in photography was kindled as a child when I won a nature photo contest. In the 80’s I attended art school and formally trained on film photography. Moves, a marketing career and raising kids put serious photography on a shelf until 2012 when a gift of a DSLR camera and a refresher class rekindled an old flame. I love shooting live performances and have a passion for local music. I have always strived to capture the personalities of my subjects in my photographs. Still photography freezes an instant in time and in that fraction of a second, volumes of a story can be told.” continue to page 5
