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 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 .

Rick Springfield gallery updated   in Nashville – 10 years in a row

Rick Springfield gallery updated in Nashville – 10 years in a row

Had a great time working the past two nights with Rick Springfield at the Legendary Wildhorse Saloon here in Nashville. This marks 10 years in a row that Rick has sold out back to back nights over Valentine’s Day weekend. At 67  years young, he is still kicking ass and taking names. I highly suggest checking out one of his shows if you have the chance. They are full of timeless classic hits like Human Touch, Don’t Talk To Strangers, Affair Of The Heart, I’ve Done everything For You and of course the crowd favorite Jessie’s Girl.  Aside from the great music, Rick is an all around entertainer with amazing crowd interaction including bringing kids up on stage to sing and dance, walking into the crowd on tables during Human Touch and personal banter with fans during the show. 

I have had the pleasure of shooting these Valentine’s shows with him for the past 7 years including the after show meet and greets with the fans, who are incredibly passionate and supportive, many of them having travelled from other parts of the country and having seen him numerous times. 

 Saturday night he was joined on stage by long time former drummer Jack White who resides here in Nashville for a cover of the Kinks classic You Really Got Me. Past years have seen celebrity guests join him to sing along including Tom Kiefer, The Nelson Brothers and several others.

 You can view photos from nine shows going back to 2010 here on my site  Rick Springfield live photos . 

A short clip from the February 10 , 2017 show during Jessie’s Girl can be seen here: rick springfield jessie’s girl 2-10-2017
