About Me

My name is Andy Jillson. I’m a freelance photographer and writer currently living in Silver Spring, MD. ​I’m particularly drawn to taking photos of musicians, and I’ve been photographing concerts in my free time since 2013. The first band I ever photographed was The Flaming Lips. It was fucking amazing. I photographed The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, Tame Impala, and The Flaming Lips at Merriweather Post Pavilion on Oct. 4, 2013. That was my first experience in a photo pit. I’ve been hooked since then. 

I’ve attended hundreds of concerts throughout my life, and I’ve spent a ridiculous amount of time poring over music. My rock ‘n’ roll obsession began as kid in the late 80’s, and I feel extremely fortunate to finally be doing something I love.  I do this for the love of music. It’s just that simple. I’m not after any money and have no delusions of becoming a self-employed concert photographer. I just want to rock out and have fun in the photo pit with my friends.
