In 2015 I am proud to share that I began my journey to become a master in Arcanum, an online, personal and interactive photography mentoring and educational community based on an apprenticeship and mentoring philosophy. I am humbled and proud to be in the midst of other top class artists, photographers and educators and share my knowledge with others.
I am always excited to showcase my “Ruinscape” series which features a modern and dramatic twist that brings the forgotten, lost and abandoned back to life. Check the “blog” section frequently to read stories and adventures from these shoots where I am able to gain access to locations that have been long abandoned, sometimes for over 100 years. I attempt to capture the history and ancient beauty of these places with my photographs and stories. In many cases, these old factories, hospitals, hotels, wineries, junkyards and other locations appear to have been frozen in time as if the workers just up and left leaving their articles behind never to return.
LIVE THROUGH THE LENS:
In 2014 I created a blog on my website devoted entirely to concert photography, tips and tutorials, equipment, reviews and photos from concerts. After photographing many national recording acts such as Hall and Oates, Journey, The Doobie Brothers, Little Big Town, David Nail, Cam, Breaking Benjamin, Killswitch Engage, In This Moment, Trapt, Shaman’s Harvest, Hinder, We Are Harlot, Nothing More, The Zac Brown Band, Rob Zombie, Saving Abel, Drop Clutch, Lynch Mob, Shallow Side, Styx, Foreigner, Don Felder, Adelita’s Way, Three Days Grace and others, I continue to pursue my passion for concert photography with new and upcoming artists added. 2016 looks to be an amazing year for concert photography with new acts being added to my creds. I want to thank all of the management and pr personal who have graciously worked with me on photo and press credentials. I have been commissioned by several big name acts to create press photo kits and artwork for the bands and management companies.
