Slayer photo galleries updated 42 shows 600+ images

Slayer photo galleries have been updated. including live photos from  40+ shows through 16 years . I’ve been a Slayer fan   35 years now.   very first show I saw was in 1988. If you   told  I would go on to work over 180 shows with them later in life. I would have said you were crazy. From that first time at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago to shows in Norway and Finland , they never disappoint. 

 I began photographing them in 2003 through EMG Pickups , with a shoot with Kerry before the show and have been documenting the entire sets ever since. Having developed a working relationship with the band and crew has now become nearly 20 years of friendship. I have had the pleasure of shooting them all over the USA and overseas. Worked  with them on festivals including Ozzfest , Mayhem Fest , Knotfest , Rock On The Range , The Big 4 and several of their own headlining tours. My work with the band has been around the world in print with companies like Bc Rich Guitars , Emg Pickups, ESP Guitars , Marshall Amps , Kahler , Fernandes , Celestion , Silly Strings Guitar Shop and others. 

With the band now on their final farewell tour this year I am hoping to hit an even 200 shows before it ends. I will be there for the final show wherever it ends up being shooting their final bow and walk off stage. Do NOT miss one of these shows if it is ANYWHERE near you, you will NOT regret it !

Rob Zombie Photo Gallery Updated 45 Shows over 400 images

Rob Zombie Photo Gallery Updated 45 Shows over 400 images

Rob Zombie concert gallery has been updated this weekend. Featuring over 400 images from 45 shows over the past 13 years. I have had the pleasure of shooting Rob and the band all over the country starting on Ozzfest in 2002 . Having photographed them on many festivals including  Rock On The Range , Mayhem Fest and Ozzfest . 

My first White Zombie experience was seeing them open for Pantera in Chicago in 1992 . I have been a fan ever since and have made some great friends through the epic journey.

My 20 year career actually is due to my friendship with Rob’s guitarist John 5 . John and I met back in 1998 trading KISS posters . Back 1996 I shot the re union tour , seeing the photos John said ” these are great , you should do this for a living ! ” He and I have remained friends ever since, the rest is history .
