Fireworks photo gallery added

I added a new photo gallery to the site this evening featuring some of my photographs from fireworks displays thorugh the years in various cities. I absolutely love watching and photographing  fireworks. Like most people , my love of fireworks displays started many years ago as a child.

I uploaded a selection if images from several displays from the past 8 years from a few different cities including the amazing display put on in Nashville, that is ranked is the largest display in the entire country. This years 4th of July celebration in Nashville featured a concert by Sheryl Crow followed by a 35 minute display with music by the Nashville Symphony that was absolutely jaw dropping.

Photos added this evening come from Round Lake Illinois in 2008, 2009 in Paddock Lake and kenosha Wisconsin, Des Moines Iowa at the Iowa State Fair, and the Nashville Christmas Parade , and Nashville 2011, 2015 and 2016.

Dimebag Darrell / Damageplan 200 images added for viewing

I’ve been working on a couple of projects this past week that required me to go through my archives of Dimebag Darrell  photos. While doing so I

updated my site with over 200 images from 8 different Damageplan concerts and the final photo shoot Darrell and I did at and near his home in October of 2003 for several of his endorsements including KORG , Dean Guitars , Krank , and DImebag Hardware . I will add more miages as time allows, including Pantera photos from  several tours once I have the old film negatives scanned. I had the distinct honor and pleasure of photographing Dime and the guys through the years numerous times on and off stage. Over the past several years since he was tragically taken from us many of these images have appeared in magazines around the world, posters, shirts, hats and more.

Rick Springfiled photos 2 sold out Nashville shows

I spent the past two nights working my house photography gig at The Legendary Wildhorse Saloon here in Nashville with back to back sold out shows with GRammy Winning, Multi Platinum selling artist Rick Springfield. Rick has managed to sell out 2 nights here for the past 9 years in a row. With a slew of radio hits, movies and videos, fans travel from all across the country to come to these special shows. At 66 years young the former General Hospital star has not lost a beat. Many artists out there could learn a thing or two by watching Rick perform. His 90 minute sets are a non stop barrage of high energy songs, that includes Rick walking across tables into the crowd during his hit Human Touch, to bringing a slew of small children on stage for the classic Don’t Talk To Strangers. Upon the show ending, he immediately heads upstairs for fan meet and greets with up to 100 people, followed by running back downstairs to meet with and sign autographs for upwards of 200 more that bought cds during the show.

Saturday night’s show featured a few special guests – Matthew and Gunnar Nelson and  Tom Kiefer of Cinderella joined Rick for the crowd favorite Jessie’s Girl. The show eneded with another special guest appearance by Rick’s longtime friend and drummer Jack White for a rendition of the Jimi Hendrix classic Fire.

This marked my 5th year working with Rick for these back to back shows, it is always an honor and a pleasure to photograph and work with him. An incredible singer,songwriter, performer and amazingly nice guy. 363 days until we do it again.

You can view my photos from the both February 12th and 13th shows as well as images from past shows on my site here:

New images of Nashville’s General Jackson Dinner Showboat

One of the things I love most about my job as a photographer is the wide varieties of projects I get to work on . While I am most well known for my work in the rock and roll world, I enjoy all forms of the art from landscape and architectural photography, to food, botanical ,travel and anything else that requires me and my camera. Today’s office was the legendary General Jackson Showboat here in Nashville at Opry Mills. Today’s project was to photography the newly remodeled dinner/show theater for web, promotional and commercial use. We also headed into the heart of the boat to photograph the engine room, as well as some fun photos with the boat’s Captain.

Over the past year I have been hired to cover all three of  the offered cruise and show packages that includes the Nashville Live! midday lunch cruise and show, Hot Country Nights and Sunday Gospel brunch cruise and show. Each one has a unique Nashville based music and dance performance as you cruise the Cumberland River from Opry MIlls through downtown Nashville and back with an amazing dinner, show and cocktails. Some days are rougher than others, like the day I had to photograph all of the specialty cocktails and beer’s for the menu. I couldn’t just let them all go to waste after photographing them, that would be alcohol abuse !!

I highly suggest taking one of the cruises on your next visit to Nashville, my personal favorite would be the evening cruise that gives you a beautiful scenic view of the river as the sun sets and great photo ops of downtown lit up at night, as well as an amazing buffet style dinner with carving station and delicious southern cooking !

You can get all the info you need about the packages, and the boat’s history and cast at the official site here: General Jackson official site

You can purchase advance tickets including a VIP dockside tour here: General Jackson tickets
