Interview with Moe Alafrangy, bringing Spider-Man to life in the upcoming Marvel Universe Live coming to the Verizon Center in September.

We wanted to talk to Moe because he is a Northern Virginia native, but also because he’s Spider-Man, and it’s been awhile since we got to interview a super hero. Moe grew up in Falls Church and Alexandria, and went Annandale High School. As a kid, Moe loved Spider-Man and he wanted to be nimble and flexible like his hero. He got started in Tae Kwon Do at the age of nine, and completed his first black belt at age 14. Moe was drawn to Tae Kwan Do and the martial art tricking it features.

Skinny Puppy at the Fillmore Silver Spring

Skinny Puppy

Words and Photos by Joshua Hoover

A day in the life of a concert photographer – The Joshua Edition. Get photopass, go through security while displaying the photo pass and unzipping all the camera gear with an impatient crowd behind, get in, find the side of the stage and then hover near the stage. When the lights go down we shooters scurry like cockroaches to the front of the stage, grab a quick snap of the set list and then take up our positions and wait. Once the band starts to take the stage start shooting like mad because after the third song ends so does the glamorous life of being inside the barrier come to a halt and we are cleared away, easy.

Rob Zombie in DC

Photos and words by Joshua Hoover

They stood in the cold, long line that wrapped around the block, waiting to get in as soon as doors opened to snag the perfect view. The crowd lined the rails and zealously guarded their spots on the floor. All faces were aglow with excitement. They ranged from kids as young as 6 to the most hardcore of grandparents.

Updates! And I start my road to the Olympics!

Celebrity Judge McKayla Maroney

I have been busy as of late, but for good reason. Sunday I’ll be providing coverage of Lynyrd Skynrd at Jiffy Lube Live. Then Monday I’ll be covering Barenaked Ladies and Ben Folds Five (with Guster) from Merriweather. Then on Wednesday I’m covering the Washington Kastles match. Tickets are still available to all of these events.

On top of that I’ve just received confirmation I’m covering the Olympic Media summit this fall, where I’ll get to meet and photograph each of the Team USA athletes heading to Sochi for the Winter Games. Stay tuned!
