The man behind the lens of Uproar Fest
"It's the music that brings us together"
Uproar music festival is not just about the bands and the fans but it's a real close community. My husband and I would of never met if this tour was not started, seeing that we met on it and all lol.
Everyone becomes your family. It is a job, but it is also home for a long time while tour buses travel the country for many.
Along this journey my husband met a very talented man by the name
Strati Hovartos. He is not only the photo and media guru on this tour but he is a rockstar at what he does.
Not many people know the life of touring...
Living on a bus, snack food as meals, beds the size of a drawer and minimal showering. Strati does all this and more. Not only does he shoot footage all day for Uproar fest AND Mayhem music festival, but he hops on the bus right after and gets to editing. Every single day, sorting through thousands of photos picking out the best, while enjoying the bumpy road.
Music festivals are fun but they are not his only gigs. Strati lives in Los Angeles CA, and working in the entertainment and film industry. His talent sure does not go to waste my friends. I was lucky enough to tag along with Mr. Hovartos this past labor day weekend in Tampa FL and get some awesome footage of not only the bands, but the man behind the lens. He has a really cool way of shooting and i tried to learn and use his work for inspiration.
All work displayed is mine from the show, but feel free to go check Strati out on istagram!
