Air Guitar Qualifier 2014

Posted on May 5, 2014 by

After photographing the US Air Guitar east coast qualifier a few years ago, and having been to a few other qualifiers in the years since, I wanted to shoot the extreme airsicians again as whenever I attend I always have a great time, smiles abound. It’s also fun seeing many of the same faces compete year after year and seeing what new moves they can come up with. I promise you, if there’s a qualifier near you, please attend. If you don’t have a good time then there is something really wrong with you.

I shot a full series for CMJ of which you can see the photos here (and if you’re unfamiliar with the background of air guitar, there is more information explaining just what this is at that link), and below are the many many outtakes. There were so many good photos I had trouble narrowing down just one of each competitor for CMJ. And for those of you in the area who are still interested in competing, there is another qualifier at Arlene’s Grocery on May 26th. So keep an eye out and practice your shredding, and soon you too can be on the stage rocking out and perhaps win your way to Finland for the championships!
