Sometimes we still can't believe what Jason Stoff has done with Encor.es. A photographer? With a blog? That we actually want to read and not just gawk at? This thing exists? Hell yeah, it does! Through the years, Stoff (who occasionally shoots for RFT) has taken Encor.es from a simple portfolio of his work to a legitimate site for music news, interviews, contests and more. Yes, his pretty, pretty pictures still take up quite a bit of blog real estate, but Stoff turns his photos into curiosity pieces by sharing technical details about how he got the shots as well as what was happening with the artists when the flash went off. By combining photo-nerd stuff with information of interest to all, Stoff has curated a fresh site with a unique perspective on what it means to be in the moment at a show.
