26-JULY-2018 – ALLENE ROHRER (SONIC BOOMERANG) 

Allene Rohrer Bridget – you are such a good photographer. I came across a bunch of your photos on yelp (Missouri Lounge) and knew right off they were yours. In fact, they contained photos of several friends of mine and my brother (that was totally random just coming across them on yelp). Of course you were at the open mic so I guess that isn’t too surprising that I’d see people I know among the photos.

25-JULY-2018 – RUBY SMITH (EYESCREAM JEWELRY)

20-FEBRUARY-2018 – LR

Hi Bridget:

I hope you had a relaxing and fun long weekend. I definitely was able to get some R & R in…

Gary stopped by and gave me the neat little calendar book!! I love it! It is so cute and usable, too!!

I am going to set it up for the year so I can use it! I keep dates on my iPhone but I also like to have a paper calendar that I use and carry with me, so this is perfect!

Thanks so much! You are a sweetheart!

19-FEBRUARY-2018 – CHE PRASAD (SHARK ALLEY HOBOS)

Hi Bridget, Thanks you so much! That is very generous of you! If you send a link for a release form I will have each Hobo sign one and send them back to you. The song is coming along and should be done within the next couple of months. For the image, should I download it from your site? I wanted to use the one where we are all pulling on the rope. Let me know the best way to get the image and I will get to work getting the Hobos to sign the release! Thanks again and have a great week! -Che

6-FEBRUARY-2018 – CHE PRASAD (SHARK ALLEY HOBOS)

Hi Bridget, I wrote a song called “A Hobo’s Life” with verses about each member of the Shark Alley Hobos. I am recording it now and was thinking it would be cool to have all the hobos on the artwork for the single cover. I think the picture you took at the Pirate Fest with all of us tugging on the rope would be perfect. I have a guy who does the layout and he usually adds things to the photos I give him like logos, titles, etc. I would not have any hard copies of the single so the final cover would be used as the image on our website and Facebook for the single (which people can download from our website). We don’t make much money from the download sales but we love recording and putting out music. You would of course get a credit in the liner notes for the photo! If you needed releases, I’m sure I could get them from the band. Let me know what you think…

31-JANUARY-2018 – CHE PRASAD (SHARK ALLEY HOBOS)

Hi Bridget, I am recording a new original sea shanty for the Shark Alley Hobos. Would it be possible to use one of the photos you took at the Pirate Fest as the inspiration for the cover art? I was thinking of the photo of all the Hobos pulling on the rope. Let me know…Thanks! -Che

24-OCTOBER-2017 – CHE PRASAD (SHARK ALLEY HOBOS)

Hi Bridget, those were amazing photos! Can we use them on FB and our website (keeping your info at the bottom and giving you a photo credit of course)? Also, do you have a website where they can be viewed? Thanks again and hope we get to work together again in the future. If you go to our website, you can download our latest singles for free: www.sharkalleyhobos.net

Thank You Bridget for sharing your awesome shots!!

 26-AUGUST-2012 – MANASSEH BERNAL (FLEETING TRANCE)

I admire people who have provided amazing service to me. My advice to all who believe the world owes them anything: if for some reason you are lucky enough to have someone provide an excellent service that benefits you: thank your lucky stars cuz it may never happen again, utilize it, pay them in undying gratitude first and learn how to pay them in actual money second (warning:that may mean actual hard work and sacrifice on your part) also you might think about making their experience in this world more enjoyable.

But – I am not the only photographer at the Utah Open Mic. …

19-AUGUST-2012 – DANIEL BOJANGLE

I’ve performed at the Open Mic a couple of time (such a great thing you guys put on) and recall someone with a really nice camera taking TONS of photos both times. Where do these photos end up? I’m almost positive there were a bunch taken of our performance.

Thanks!!

Hi Bridget, thank you so much for letting us know about this – how nice! James was very happy to see it as well. Prior to his show, I’d never been to a murmur before, and it was so great to see so many people out and about in Oakland. Again, many thanks for photographing us – we love the images, and the slideshow is especially beautiful…

you are super sweet…I owe you and people like you lots….you’ve logged so many hours helping me at your own cost. I really don’t feel like I can ever repay it. There are few people I have come across that can compare to what you do for the music community….JJ is one of them, but I have to struggle to think of someone off top of my head beyond that.

5-JULY-2011 – BRIDGET CANFIELD

wishes to thank & acknowledge the extraordinary generosity of Manny Bernal of the indie band Fleeting Trance for his donation to my photo archive – http://www.200pockets.com/ . On a day which is normally devoted to friends & family (July 4), I am taken aback that he would find time to remember me. Thank YOU Manny! Thank you for being you. [tag: Fleeting Trance (band page)]

Best, Jerome Lee

 15-MARCH-2011 – TANIA FARDELLA

Dear Bridget,

Thank you so much for your message, I am both excited and honored that you will be able to photograph our show.

Your rabbit story brought tears to my eyes, as it is one of the few I’ve heard that actually has a happy ending, and love the fact that your Dad and family respected Belinda and Benjamin and gave them a happy and loving life. The world needs more like you…

I’m fine with the conditions of usage for your work, and since we will likely want to purchase at least some of the images for promotional purposes, will be happy to sign a release. If you would like Armando’s to sign one as well, I’ll be glad to help you coordinate with Roy (Armando’s owner) the day of the show.

I truly appreciate your offer to cover our event free of charge, but will definitely want to send you a donation. Is best way to do this via your website/paypal?

Again, thank you so much Bridget – I look so forward to meeting you in “real life.” 🙂

All the best,
Tania

22-JULY-2010 – DAVID GREENFIELD

Tonight’s Singapore Happy Hour was an amazing success! Thanks to @Michael Doyle for having me play the club. Extra special thanks to @Paul Costuros for the inspiration, @Geoffrey Lyall for helping to boost my confidence, and to @Bridget Canfield for all the time that you selflessly give to others.

22-JULY-2010 – 200POCKETS

Wishes to thank and acknowledge @Mike Glendinning -and- The RockIt Room (San Francisco) for signing releases. I look forward to providing them with editorial photographic coverage and working on special projects (ie. Violent Crumble)

21-JULY-2010 – 200POCKETS

Wishes to thank the artists and venues who have signed releases with me. I am very fortunate to be working with some rather kind and thoughtful individuals. 200pockets.com photographs taken at the 23 Club, Brisbane and at the Hotel Utah and the Rockit Room, San Francisco – can be purchased for unrestricted use. A… portion of each sale is shared equally between the venue, the open mic host and the photographer.

21-JULY-2010 – RICH HUBBARD

There’s no one else I know, Bridget (though that knowledge comes more from the volume of loving information you produce here than the time you and I have interacted), that posts so many photos of so many artists I’ve never heard of, who shows us her passion in photo and in word, who calls us out to support each other, who never bloody shuts up (and this compels our love like nothing else), who seems to be blessedly lost in her art, who is such a vocal advocate for raw artistic expression, who has a gift for capturing musicians at their most beautiful.  I am still so proud of a photo you took of me at the Utah when I was premiering the zombie song.  Could hardly believe that that angry, fiery, sayingittooloud motherfucker was me.

If Karma is true, then blessings will forever rain upon your head.

30-JUNE-2010 – FERNANDO (BAMM.TV)

Hello Bridget, We just posted your photos on our website.  Thanks so much.  I also wanted to share our calendar for the upcoming shoots we have so that you can choose which ones you’d like to come and make some photos.  Take care, Fernando

23-JUNE-2010 – DAVID GREENFIELD

Has anyone told you that your pics since may 30 are exceptional? Are you using new equipment??? Better subjects? New attitude? What’s your secret?

23-JUNE-2010 – JJ SCHULTZ

Hello Bridget,

I just wanted to thank you and Klaus again for coming last Thursday. We all loved your photos and I was wondering if it would be possible for you to post them on our bamm.tv page. Hope everything is going well.

Thanks,

Fernando

22-JUNE-2010 – ASHIF HAKIK

That’d be great if you could make it Bridget, don’t kill yourself over it though. I’m unsure what the show is going to be like. It’s been ages since I played the Rockit Room, and that was with a full band. I don’t even know if it’s upstairs or some special downstairs thing.

Tristin Buckley booked the show, and he told me that the show is supposed to start at 8 and I’m supposed to go on at 10. So I’m guessing Helen at 8, Bryan at 9, and myself at 10…

f course someone needs to account for musician time in there!

-A

22-JUNE-2010 – ASHIF HAKIK

You too Bridget,
no worries, its how it goes at the Utah, I got lucky enough to get #5 last night. First time I’ve gotten an early number all year I think! Usually I’m there till 12 at least.  We’ll catch each other there sometime soon. Tell Klaus one day I’ll do Bohemian Rhapsody for him! haha!  -A

22-JUNE-2010 – TERESE TAYLOR

Very cool Bridget. You know, you’re a gift from beyond. I appreciate you & will be your servant in another life. Or this one.  Love.  T

22-JUNE-2010 – THERESA SAWI / GIRL NAMED T

thanks to everyone at Hotel Utah Saloon for the support last night, my band and I had a blast. Thanks especially to Geoffrey Lyall and Zen Tao-Journey Jimalric Stevensson-Zenith for the health advice, Bridget Canfield for the visual records, and Jesse Dyen for the grateful glass of water.

20-JUNE-2010 – VICTORIA VICTROLA

i’m in utter agreement w/david here. you are a rock star, and not in the drunk and crazy breaking things way, but the super awesome amazing way. these “little” things you take the time to do, are incredibly helpful and amazing. especially since half the time, i feel like i don’t even have the time to do the oh so little things for my own creative endeavours. *hugs*

18-JUNE-2010 – FERNANDO ESTRADA (BRICKS AND MORTAR MEDIA)

Hi Bridget, it was really nice to see you last night. Feel free to come and photograph our shoot.

thanks for the kind words last night.

It’s simple, but will keep growing.

If you don’t mind, let Klaus know that Silver Civics are cool.
I think he misses the red one.

Have a good week!

15-JUNE-2010 – AMANDA SEWALL

thank you, bridget: for the heart that u share….not to mention the quality talent that u wear.

15-JUNE-2010 – TRIS BUCKLEY

Definitely Bridget, and absolutely Nina. Let’s give it up for the fans, they are our supporters; we’re here to serve music not the other way around! Bravo!

15-JUNE-2010 – TRIS BUCKLEY

Yup you really captured Brendan’s amazing energy!

15-JUNE-2010 – BRIDGET CANFIELD

Would like to acknowledge and thank the fans who attend live music shows. They often come by public transportation or multiple forms of public transport & their efforts to support local music, venues, artists, bands and friends is often overlooked. Though I am not in a band or own a venue, I’d like to say thanks to these supporters.  They are true patrons of the arts. – Bridget

15-JUNE-2010 – MIKE CHASE

Tireless commitment.

14-JUNE-2010 – ANDRE CUSTODIO

Thank you Bridget, as always, for your amazing work!!!

13-JUNE-2010 – MARSHA SCHULTZ

Hi Bridget,

I wanted to thank you for the pictures of JJ you did for us.  That was so nice of you to think of us!

I’m so sorry I didn’t get to meet you at the Hotel Utah the other night.  I would love to get to know you better.  I so appreciate all of your work.  You are very gifted.

JJ told me you had come to the Hotel Utah after we had left for the evening and that you had brought the pictures for me.  That was so nice of you to do!  I really wanted to stay and listen to the musicians but my husband didn’t want to stay so late………………..so we compromised (I went home when he wanted to go, what kind of compromise is that??)  Anyway, he thinks we compromised………..ha!

The musicians are so fortunate to have you there on Monday nights photographing.  Thank you so much for all you do.  I know how much JJ appreciates you!

‘Til next time,

Marsha (JJ’s mom)

8-JUNE-2010 – ASHIF HAKIK

Sometimes its the little things: Thanks to Bridget Canfield for reposting about my upcoming show, and posting it on other boards for me. This is what I believe being part of a music community is about. Don’t get jaded that you know just yet “another” musician or artist. In this age, sometimes all we have left from our art is to just share it, and we need all the help we can get!

For those that don’t know Bridget is an awesome photographer who donates her time taking pictures of those who attend a few of the open mic gatherings, and other shows. Without her, many memorable nights, moments, and people would go undocumented. Thanks Bridget, if it weren’t for you I wouldn’t be pressured to dye my hair or do laundry as much! 😉

8-JUNE-2010 – PATRICIA HARRISON

Bridget is a very talented photographer that I had the pleasure of finally meeting. I’ve admired her work for quite some time now. Thank you Bridget for sharing your talents with us 🙂

Great photos Bridget!  Good to see you at the hat shop,and to meet ur girls…it was a great atmosphere and a great day.See u next time!

3-MAY-2010 – ELISA M WELCH

I see you out there all the time at live music venues, taking loads of pictures, and then you actually go thru them to get the GOOD ones… so unlike some other folks I could name, but won’t 😉

It’s not merely in comparison to less-committed types, tho. I really appreciate your work and your (IMHO obvious) dedication to it!… See More

Keep on truckin!

3-MAY-2010 – JASON CHORNEY (GREAT GIRL’S BLOUSE)

Pockets takes great photos. And her presence at the Utah is something that makes the artist feel glamorous on stage there. But I do enjoy these hilarious conversations started by that guy who insists everyone play his guitar and talks smack when they say no thanks.

 3-MAY-2010 – D.J*O*B*E

I really appreciate not only your commitment to getting out to live shows, and your obvious talent as a photographer, and professionalism with which you run your business… all of that. But your dedication to culling through what has to be thousands of photos to get the right one, then taking the time to process them before presentation. You’re a class act!

I’d be happy to sign a release, Bridget. Thanks again for all the diligent and creative work you do!

26-APRIL-2010 – BRYAN HARRISON

Hi Bridget, Thanks for that. I do appreciate your situation, and we all value your work. Do you have a release for us to sign, or will you need to make a custom doc for that? Is there a standard royalty for use, or just the release. Would love to keep using the composite we have, and possibly other shots of yours. I don’t think we’ll find a whole lot of resistance to signing something with you from The Buds.

Thanks again. Please let me/us know our next step.
warm regards,
Bryan

15-APRIL-2010 – ASHIF HAKIK

Bridget, you deserve more.  What you do out of your own will and care is more appreciated by the likes of me.  I wish I had steady work, I’d be donating monthly.  The very fact that you are doing this because there is something that draws you to it and nothing more is a testament to what true love of a scene is.  Its not because you want to be hip or in with a specific crowd.  Nor, that you’re looking for something directly out of it.  You do it because you see the love being put into the music and art, and want to support it with your own art.  That is what makes me love being a part of the local open mic scene.  I come from the “big show” and rock scene, and I’ve never seen the consistent amount of love, care and support that I find at the Utah.  It always humbles me to think about it.  It’s why I encourage everyone I know to stop by more than once.  To basque in something that I believe is closer to what the old music scenes were, albeit on a much smaller scale.  Real love, with open minds for all kinds of talent.

I believe that when you can come to one of the open mics in the bay and truly understand what they are about, you begin to appreciate what true talent is, and appreciate the amount of courage it takes for people to get up there and share.  Something that many people today disregard because we all “know someone in a band”.

I’m sure I say this for all, thank you for YOUR generosity!”

Bridget;

The drummer in Garageland Rodeo (Charles Waltmire) is a graphic artist.  He worked for the Bee for a while before he, too, was laid off.

Anyway, I would like to send him the link to your photos of GLR from October ’07, so he can get some ideas for a hand drawn tribute piece he is working on, but I wanted to check with you first to see if that was okay.  We want to make a commemorative poster for a Benefit we are doing for Mark, to help him pay for treatment, this month.

Thanks!!!

12-FEBRUARY-2010 – EARL KRAMER

Hello Bridget,

I can’t believe we didn’t think of this sooner, but we have a great photo idea. Colin built, by hand, a bar in his apartment. It is full-featured in every sense of the word(s). It would make a great setting for a band photo.

What do you think? He lives in Burlingame, so it’s not super close, but if you’re open to the idea, I think it would be nice. Plus, Colin is a generous bartender.

This can all be done at your leisure, of course.

Earl

Hope to see you at the show!  -RR

12-FEBRUARY-2010 – COLIN RUEGSEGGER (LIME COLONY)

I resent the very IMPLICATION that I could be considered an artist.

I’m a drummer. Art has nothing to do with it.

Hope you’re feeling better Bridget!

Dear Bridget,

Andre had told me that you were a great photographer, I did not really see you taking my pictures cause I couldn’t really look out at the ppl. It was a real sweet surprise to see that you did take pictures of us! I have just seen some of the Lucabrazzi and now ours and I must say…. BRAVO! nice way of capturing the energy of us, really nice, now I gotta go see the rest of these awesome pictures!

Thanks soo much, oh and I went to your site and saw that you also took pictures of Jennie Brooks and The Fancy Dan Band… I now know them through La-Ni from Girls With Guns as I have now become their new guitarist! We are going to celebrate La-ni’s B-day at a show in Crockett “Toons” Have you heard of The Legendary Stardust Cowboy? GWG usually does shows with this guy.  Anyway thank you so much for coming and supporting us last night, next time I want to meet you, in between your shooting of course.

Sincerely Sophie

11-FEBRUARY-2010 – SOPHIE (THE YES-GO’S)

It seems that you are a hard working lady, I saw you aim a camera through the window @ El Rio at our friend Roxy, when he was playing his bass, nice perspective, hope it turned out.  Thanks for your friendship  Sophie

24-NOVEMBER-2009 – DANNI VALDEZ

Hi Bridget, Thank you for having my link on your site. I was Google-ing my name today and that’s how I found 200 Pockets. An amazing find because it also led me to Roger Rocha as well. I haven’t seen him since the early 90’s (pre 4 Non Blondes).  We used to hang out at a mutual friend’s house. From time to time I’ve wondered what became of him. I had no idea he was fronting such a great band. Small world indeed.  I wanted to give my most sincere appreciation to you for mentioning/recommending me as a photographer. I’ve never had someone (that I’ve never met) do that. It means a lot because I am trying to develop a name for myself.

For my website (on your site) you can use this link.  That’s where I direct people (until my website is up).  I plan on going to the Goldenhearts show in Alameda at Speisekammer (one of my favorite restaurants) on December 17 to shoot it. Maybe I’ll see you there. – Danni

23-NOVEMBER-2009 – ROGER ROCHA (THE GOLDENHEARTS)

1-NOVEMBER-2009 – EDWARD SLIM CRITCHLOW

Hi Bridget, I just wanted to tell you how much I like the current slide show (21-Sept-2009) you have up at theutah.org.  I may have been missing some of your recent work but I really like the shots of driving and the ambience of the utah. I know you’ve done some shots like that before but this slide show seems like you’ve done a bit more with the ambient shots. Anyway just wanted to let you know how good it looks. – Slim

19-OCTOBER -2009 – CODY

Bridgette I mean no disrespect I only want to help you. You have much more access than me.  I had a hard hard time learning this. I am still learning this I have very very little experience taking pictures. I am only 23 years old. So don’t be offended. You post a lot of images, statistically speaking you have a big advantage over me, more people look at your photos and you have established yourself in the community. I am from a little hick town in Sonoma County.

I learned a lot about concert photography from Eric Gillet’s meta tags, yours dont show up so i dont know what stats were used to make your shots. typically I dont shoot to meter (manual or shutter priority) and I don’t shoot under 1/125 unless it is really really fucking dark, like black. If you are shooting at this or faster and still have camera shake go with the mono stand, if not try it.

The best university photographer may no nothing about club photography, this is distinct from concert photography because the Stones have tons of lights, Cafe Van Kleef does not.

I think you can tell that I only want to help and not blasting you or your work. I try not to get satisfied I go out every time to improve with my rinky dink 200$ camera. You have also been very gracious dealing with my critiques which is the best way to take any critique not getting upset and firing back just for the sake of firing back.

BTW I loved your self portrait, tons of class.

19-OCTOBER-2009 – CODY

you know your shutter speed is killing you. the computer is ineffective in the dark its just a sophisticated meter of middle gray. Use your ISO’s to compensate and autofocus is not a bad thing here AF Servo has its place sometimes too. You have way more tools at your disposal than I do and I don’t ever see you using them in your photos.  Gosh full frame, I envy you it’s my greatest limitation.

You are beyond generous and the new pictures look AMAZING!!!!!  We will surely pick out some pictures. Please send us a link or release form for us to fill out so that you get what you need.  I feel like the pictures you take are what I imagine things to look like in a perfect stage/world: Psychedelic, turn-of the-century, art, rock and roll, english garden, roadhouse, Ganges river-dream.  You are an angel, Roger

2-AUGUST-2009 – JJ SCHULTZ

Hi.  – JJ here. Say, I just want to start off this email with a big thanks to Bridget for all of the work she is doing with the photos – they come out so good, week after week, and anyone who’s ever attempted to photograph inside the utah, well you know how skilled she is. Every time I try to shoot in there, it comes out as a red blob, while her photos are pieces of art, each one worthy of lingering thought, usually along the lines of ‘That would make a GREAT album cover’. Anyways, I just had to get that off my chest – we are all very lucky people…. have a look here at the photos from last monday: . gorgeous.

Might I add that you look even lovelier in person! You are a beautiful person inside and out! Keep up the great work on 200pockets!  Yours, Vanessa

Hi Bridget, great to meet you too.  Thanks for your help with the hi res [Flipper] photos.  -Jason.

30-APRIL-2009 – FANCY DAN

Wow thanks so much for putting this together!  The photos came out great and I’m really excited about the shots you were able to capture.  My favorites have to be from behind the stage.  Those images always stand out to me, but it’s hard to get shots like that often times.  Thanks for going all out and getting tons of different angles and everything. 

29-APRIL-2009 – STEPHEN DEPACE (Flipper)

Bridget is our press photo Guru.

[posted on craigslist] Is this place for real?

Overheard someone saying recently “it’s the ONLY [music] scene in San Francisco.”

Really?

So my suspicion that the SF music scene was dying was totally off — it’s not dying, it’s deader than dead.

Last visit for me was a bunch of posers standing around vibing each other. Yet once they hit the stage, they all sounded exactly alike: brooding, non-melodic down tempo shitty acoustic sung by frumpy dumpy played out hags and wannabe hipsters. BORING.

And what’s with the PHOTOGRAPHER?
She’s got to be the biggest idiot poser of them all — leaning in, craning in, crouching on the floor, like she’s chronicling an important life event for Nat’l Geographic, adorned in a safari outfit, like she’s just happened upon some lost city.  Honey, calm down. It’s an open mic. What a self-important asshole she is.

I laugh openly at your little “SCENE.”

27-APRIL-2009 – FERENCE DOBRONYI (POLLO SURF)

Thanks for the photos! I will be posting your slide show in various places. Thanks for your excellent work!  -Ferenc
