Z100 Jingle Ball 2012

This was my 3rd Z100 Jingle Ball in as many years and it felt amazing being at Madison Square Garden again.  The show keeps getting bigger; more production, the biggest names in the biz, amazing collaborations.  As usual I spent some time taking photos of the backstage areas, and behind the scenes.  This year I did a meet and greet with One Direction and Taylor Swift.  The guys in 1D were really very nice; they all came up to me and shook my hand (doesn’t always happen like that!)…  When I got to meet Taylor Swift, well, I was just in awe.  She’s super sweet, tall, slender, a knockout.  Her fans love her and she really loves her fans!  She hugged a lot of the young girls and boys that were lucky enough to meet her.  Once again I was so thrilled to be a part of this concert in my hometown.  It’s a dream come true shooting it.
