Moonrise Festival in Baltimore (Photo by Max Ruehrmund)

Hazy Eye Music Media is proud to announce another interview in a series of interviews I’m currently conducting with some of my favorite concert photographers. I’m stepping outside of my comfort zone and have been picking the brains of some phenomenal photographers. My interviews in this series focus on “local” concert photographers. That is photographers around DC, MD, and VA. The DMV as we call it.

Anyway, check it out! I, Andy Jillson, was fortunate enough to interview Max Ruehrmund. Max is an extremely talented concert photographer and has covered a wide variety of concerts and music festivals. Max truly loves music and photography, and it shows in his work.

Young Dolph @ The Fillmore (Photo by Abdullah Konte)

Young Dolph and Key Glock performed for a sold out crowd at The Fillmore in Silver Spring, Maryland on March 1, 2020 — and Hazy Eye Music Media’s contributor Abdullah Konte was there to capture some of this soon to be classic Fillmore rap show. Young Dolph recently confirmed that he is retiring from the rap game. That’s right. Total bummer for his fans, but great news for his kids. We are truly grateful to have this “photo flashback.” Thanks Abdullah!

Snoop Dogg performing @ The Fillmore (Photo by Andy Jillson)

Snoop Dogg performed at The Fillmore in Silver Spring, Maryland on January 19, 2020 — and I, Andy Jillson, was there in the photo pit “smokin’ indo” with the rap and hip-hop icon. The show was sold out, the venue was tightly packed, and the crowd was “highly” anxious. The fans went absolutely crazy at first site of tha Dogg. Once again I was overcome with awe. Snoop dominated the mic and smoked out the entire venue. Wow.
