Don’t Forget The Gear (Companies)!

  Just a quick post today.  One of my images of John Myung (one that I posted about earlier here) is being used by Ernie Ball/Music Man for some promo materials.  They are a great company that builds some amazing instruments.  Their strings are awesome, too! I’ve been working with them a lot over the […]

Beyond The Stage – Telling The Story Of A Show

Today I want to get into one of my favorite subjects – looking for those shots that will complement the standard live photos that you get of a band. I’m talking about detail shots (gear, isolated shots of a performer’s hands or other part of their body), behind the scenes (maybe a tech working, performers […]

My Lenses

I often get asked about the gear that I use – especially which lenses I use for some of the shots that I post on social media. Lenses are one of the biggest investments you will make in your photography. Camera bodies will come and go, but your glass can stay with you for years, […]
