Peterson Brothers Continental Club Austin, TexasAlex Peterson, 15, of the Peterson Brothers Band.GLENN PETERSON JR., 18, and his brother ALEX PETERSON,15, perform at the Continental Club in Austin Texas on October 20th, 2014.

Usually clubs with live performances don't allow photography. Visiting the Continental Club in Austin, Texas a few weeks ago I got lucky. Sticking by the old saying you don't get what you don't ask for, I went ahead and asked the door guy if I could take pictures. He told me to go right ahead and I did. Once I got permission I wasn't shy about it. I introduced myself to the band and met them and their family. The Peterson Brothers Band consists of two brothers, Alex, 15, and Glenn Jr, 18. That's Alex on the bass guitar. I spent two hours photographing, had a fantastic time, and was able to get the band photos for promotional use.

Bring your camera with you.

Don't be shy about using it.

Get engaged with your subjects.

And by all means, have fun!
