The best photo I took at VidCon

This is my favorite photo that I took at VidCon 2012 a few months ago. There is just so much that I love about it, from the intense expression on this girl’s face to the Make Videos Every Day wristband she’s wearing to the fact that almost every type of video camera – from a…

Summer Concerts and LeakyCon

Last week I attended a Harry and the Potters concert, where I managed to get this fantastic show of Joe DeGeorge stage diving at the end of the night. The show was so fun, and also featured performances by The Home Alones and the Potter Puppet Pals. Plus, earlier that day, Harry and the Potters…
