Local is me with a camera, photographing local bands and artists that pass through Columbia, SC this March.

New goal! I'd like to get to $100 before this project is over. Since we've already reached the initial goal, $100 will help me afford to shoot more shows into April as well.

Lately there have been more and more bands and artists that pass through Columbia, SC that I really want to hear, such as The Roots, Rachael Yamagata, Neon Trees, and AWOL Nation. The project picture for this page is a Polaroid that I got to take of Rachael, and there is nothing like getting to meet an artist you've always loved after seeing an amazing performance in a small venue.

In addition to the traveling acts that come through Columbia, there is an ever growing local music scene that seems to throw a new band at me every other week that I need to go see.

With this project, Local, I want to start documenting the shows I go to this March (I've got at least three to go to so far) and posting the photos that I take as well as small interviews from the artists on a tiny little website (http://localsc.tumblr.com). It'll be a good way to remember all of the great music I've seen while doing what I love, which is sticking a camera in someone face.

FUNDING:

The funds raised for this project will be used for film (because I take photos with film: Polaroid, 35mm, pack film, ect.). The more funding I get beyond the goal, the more shows I take photos at. 

So if you can donate, I'd greatly appreciate it. If not, please hit the Facebook "like" button and spread the word a bit for me.
