BIOGRAPHY
I actually began taking photographs as a young boy at somewhere around the tender age of 8. My parents gave me a wonderful birthday gift: a Kodak Tele-Instamatic 110 camera. I used that camera joyfully for a couple of years until it sadly broke. My mother, however, was my true inspiration. She has always had an artistic sensibility, and she always had her XD-11 at her side, wherever she went. She captured many incredible images with that camera, although she never considered herself very good. One image in particular, a B&W photo of my brother on the dock at a lake, was one of the most captivating images I had ever seen. It seemed to capture the very essence of the innocence and wonder of childhood. Sadly, I wandered away from photography for a very long time. In the summer of 2003, however, my father passed away - a life-changing event, as anyone who has been through it can tell you. In the aftermath, while deciding who would receive which possessions, I inherited my father's Minolta X700. This rekindled my passion for photography at an opportune moment. I began to fuse the passion of photography with my other passion: music. I had been attending independent local concerts for a few years at this point, and I began taking my camera with me. I began to dig into the principles of photography, what made some images work and others not. My images improved dramatically. I believe my images offer something more than typical fan snapshots. Just as a band's music is driven by their creativity, so to is my photography. My camera is a way for me to portray something in an artistic way that most people don't see, and if I can cause one person to see things a little differently, affect their creativity, I can consider myself successful.
