One Republic – May 28th – Red Rocks Amphitheatre

aaOne Republic 2014-05-28-02-4709 (21)Photos by Jim Mimna

One Republic is currently sweeping the US with a broad national tour, so playing the home venue of Red Rocks was an obvious stop for the Colorado natives.  Playing a sold-out show at the legendary venue was as rewarding to the fans as it was the band apparently; the all ages audience sang every word.  The audience was truly a family affair, you could see 3 generations of music lovers all over the venue with ages spanning from toddlers to their grandparents.  The band found this first night of a 2 day ride at Red Rocks a welcomed home coming, the energy levels were visible and even the weather was perfect for the event.  The show was a full on hit parade of songs, starting with supporting acts American Authors and The Script, who bring there own offerings of current radio friendly songs to the stage leaving the packed house a satisfied group of fans.


Who Is Jim Mimna

Capturing life in various forms is what I do. I consider myself an archivist by nature. It is not a career choice that I consciously made, but it is something that has called me. I strive to freeze a moment in time with every frame, a moment that can retell its story with each viewing, forever. I also have a deep passion for music and have been photographing and recording live music for years. Capturing the energy and magic of a live performance in a photograph is one of my passions. In addition, I enjoy photographing in a wide variety of settings, from wildlife scenes to family portraits and everything in between. I am a lover of the earthscapes that we see all around us every day, both natural and manmade, and aim to make unique images that do justice to their beauty. Where others see darkness, I see streaks of light through long exposures. I shoot a very wide variety of subject matter including individual/family portraits, event coverage, landscapes, live concert/performance, HDR, product and commercial photography, architectural, weddings, food, and editorial photo journalism. With artistic expression, I aspire to create visual art that speaks volumes.
