When shooting performing musicians, I have focused on using existing light (no flash), both to minimize distraction of the performance and to capture the moment, as is. While in Boston, I photographed close to a thousand shows over five years including artists such as Letters to Cleo (@letterstocleo), Sam Black Church, Henry Rollins (@henryrollins), Helmet (@helmetmusic), Aerosmith (@aerosmith), Honkey Ball, Eleven, Merrie Amsterburg, 6L6, Mary Lou Lord, Mary Timony (@maryt_money), Helium, Paula Kelley, boy wonder, Tree, among many others.
A couple years after moving to the San Francisco bay area, a chronic health issue diagnosis (with no cure, yet) required me to slow down, including leaving a band I had been recording and performing with and attend fewer concerts. Even with the health issues, I do still occasionally take on a new gig. I also coach musicians in performing, songcraft, and music production/recording. Feel free to reach out in case there's time available in my schedule:
Releases using my creative work over the past few years include:
After the third surgery, I've been able to get back to more music projects. I'm also working on a retrospective music photography/essay book and recording project with a focus on bands from 30 years ago from my collection. Aiming for release in 2022 to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the timeframe beginning for this photo block with new recordings by some of the musicians from my photography archive and related concerts to coincide with the release.
