2016 was another successful year for concerts for me. I got the opportunity to photograph some of my favorite bands as well as finally see some bands for the first time that I had been waiting to see. Along with that came lots of incredible photos I got while photographing bands. I tried to downsize it to 15, but after staring at my screen for 10 minutes, I just couldn't decide on what to get rid of so I stretched it to ... Read More

My phone was hounded by texts all day with people trying to figure out where I was at the Big 4 concert in Indio. As the resident metal head of Concert Confessions, it makes sense that I would be deep in the desert for Anthrax, Megadeth, Slayer and Metallica. While I am sure the Big 4 was an amazing time, it simply wasn’t in the cards for me. Instead of seeing metal history, I ... Read More

As some of you may know, I am a HUGE fan of the San Francisco Giants baseball club. As a fan of the Giants it meant that for years, I hated future Hall of Fame pitcher Randy Johnson and his team the Arizona Diamondbacks. I of course was thrilled when he picked the Giants to finish his career with. However, today’s post is not about baseball, it’s about the six-foot-ten pitcher's post baseball career as a rock photographer.
That’s right, it turns out the ... Read More
