Name: Spencer Elizabeth Dubois
Job: Photographer for Sleeping With Sirens
Bio: Spencer's mother is a photographer, so it's no wonder the girl was naturally drawn to the art when she was growing up. She actually remembers her mom getting her her first cheap little camera when she was thirteen, and of course she was glued to her mother's hip, wanting to learn from the best.
It didn't take long for the girl's interest to turn into a hobby to a full blown passion. She ended up growing up with a camera always on her, as if it were attached to her body and could never be removed. She always had a camera on hand and a picture for every moment.
When she turned sixteen, her mother decided to upgrade her to a real camera, a nice one that could be used for actual photography, and that was where the real fun began. The girl took pictures of pretty much everything...people, nature, scenery, cool things, things she enjoyed, and of course...concerts.
She remembered her first "gig" was to do a report for one of her favorite band when she was a sophomore, having just gotten her camera. She'd been fortunate enough to get meet & greet passes, so she got to ask a the guys a few questions and get some good pictures during the show and meet & greet, which was how she realized she wanted to do photography for bands.
The more shows she went to, the more pictures she got. She posted them in a blog she made and some of them blew up and ended up becoming pretty popular, which isn't too surprising considering people will post and reblog just about anything that involves their favorite musicians. Her favorite experience was Warped though, without a doubt.
Once she graduated from high school, she hit the road to do an internship with a group that attended tons of local shows and got backstage passes and other various perks to get the pictures that were needed. It was the best job she'd ever had, which was what eventually lead her to decide to drop out of college. By this time, Sleeping With Sirens was already in the making and becoming an official band.
Being Justin's younger cousin, when they needed a couple shoots done and to get their name out there, the guys invited Spencer to come to a few rehearsals and do some promo shots for them. Since then, she's done a couple things for the band and many others, always sort of bouncing around with whatever job she could get her hands on, not everything being band related of course.
When the announcement for the tour was made, the girl was ecstatic. She did her best to try to find a way in, wanting the opportunity to travel with all her favorite bands. At the time, she was doing her best to just try to get in for any band, even if it meant being a back up photographer or one that would be moved around day by day. So...when Justin and the rest of the guys confronted her about coming along as their personal photographer, the girl just about lost it.
Since then, she's been working on some new filters and things for her pictures, and she's upgraded all her editing systems to make sure she gets the perfect shot. She has everything planned out and ready and she can't wait for the tour to begin.
