It has been three days since the end of this years Ford Arts, Beats and Eats in downtown Royal Oak, Michigan. I shot over 140 bands over the four day event, so there will be many images uploaded during the coming days.
Here is an additional image of Jena Irene who preformed Saturday Night on the Main Stage. I shot Jena at last years event and it is amazing to see her growth over the past year. There will be more updates of Jena, along with many other performers from this years event. So if you enjoy the pic’s make sure you check back often.
