Atlanta Jazz Festival 2015: Through the eyes of “Jazzy John”

Johns Press PassThe 38th Atlanta Jazz Festival has come and gone leaving many great sounds and sights, for those of us who were there, to cherish. This year my teenage son John, known usually in these posts as “Jazzy John”, joined me on photographer’s row for the first time. I gave him a few lessons on etiquette and respect in dealing with the older, seasoned, ladies and gentlemen who were also in front of the stage and then I let him do his thing, while I shot some video footage.John the photographer

As I looked at some of his results, I was impressed with his natural eye and very proud of the work he did as he shot alongside of those three and even four times his age.

I will finish my edits and post my full report on AJF38 in a few days but in the meantime, please indulge a doting father as I present John Davenport’s perspective on some of the memorable moments from the 2015 Atlanta Jazz Festival.

  1. As PR Director for the Atlanta Jazz Festival I would like to extend my sincere thanks for the coverage! It was indeed a pleasure to have both you and your son join us at the 38th Annual Atlanta Jazz Festival in the Media Tent. Any event would be lucky to have you on their media list.
