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 !
