As a music photojournalist, I'm a contributing photographer and writer for various publications and websites. I have always enjoyed going to concerts since my early teens; I love the sound, the action, and the energy that gets passed around--whether there are 50 or 50,000 people in the audience. My images capture the essence of a live rock show in all its fire and passion.
My experience isn't limited to just concerts. For the last 25 years I've shot red carpets, portraits, headshots, weddings, along with various products and volunteer activities. As an enthusiast of photography, exploring different ways to take a picture is fun and never-ending.
Gnarly Charlie has taken thousands of pictures of my band Steel Panther over the years. He is amazing at capturing the party, the action and the fury of our live performance. One of the best in the business.
