Colin Rieser is a drummer, sound engineer, and photographer. Somewhere, somehow, he finds time to shoot concerts regularly. His love for photography started with his father, who photographed every holiday and sporting event. Ever since his father bought him his first Digital SLR camera a few years ago he’s been doing photo shoots for bands, family gatherings, artists, and live concerts.
