Having picked up my first camera in 1998, a Sony Digital Mavica MVC-FD5,
(yeah, the one with floppy discs), I'm proud to be considered one of the early digital adopters in concert photography. Back then, professional photographers were anti-digital photography and it was nearly blasphemous to call yourself a photographer if you were shooting digital. For me, digital was the only way I could afford to learn to shoot because the cost of film and processing were far too expensive for a 14-year-old. I was lucky enough to ride the waves of change and ultimately witness digital photography gain legitimacy.
These days, I do about 1/10th of the photography that I'd like to. Most of my photography has been performance-related as I work to rehone my skills as a concert photographer. I'm lucky enough to be one of the "house photogs" at the renowned Boulder Theater and Fox Theatre in Boulder, CO.
This site is just a small place that I want to share some of my latest work.
Thank you for visiting!
