Photography has long been a passion of mine. In addition to the "tried and true" method of teaching myself, while attending college I also took classes in photography. At one point I even had my own darkroom. I started shooting film both 35mm and medium format back in the early 90's and eventually graduated to digital as the technology matured. My other passion is music, especially live. After going to many concerts and seeing the photographers in the pit, it dawned on me that is where I belonged. When I finally got in the pit, I knew I was home. It is my quest to catch the passion and energy that bands bring to their performance and translate that to images for all to see.
