In Feb of 2009 Carl Pocket received an email that he would be attending a Jane's Addiction show with a reunited Eric Avery in a tiny venue. At that moment Carl Pocket went out and got his first DSLR and never looked back. From that moment forward if there was a show Pocket would have a camera around his neck.
In just a few years his work has found its way onto: Hysteria AU, Billboard Magazine, Music Connection, Rollingstone.com, NME.com, CMT.com, Attheecho.com, Buzzbands.la, Newport Folk Fest and many others.
Since then he has shot over 10,000 bands, been to over 1,200 shows and shot most of the major music festivals (including Coachella, Sasquatch, Outside Lands, Lollapalooza, Treasure Island Music Festival, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Sunset Strip Music Festival, FYF Festival, Sunset Junction, Jubilee, etc.) and has been hired to be the official festival photographer for FYF Fest, Way Over Yonder Festival (2013 and 2014), The Beach Ball Fest, Echo Park Rising and more.
Carl Pocket is located in Los Angeles, CA, but will travel across the US for the right assignments. He is currently the house photographer for Spaceland Presents.
