Rob Zombie photo gallery update 50 shows !

As time allows I continue adding images from the past. Today’s update is the Rob Zombie live photo gallery. Which now features images from 50 shows going back to 2002 . 

My first Zombie show was White Zombie opening for Pantera August 12, 1996 At the Riviera theater in Chicago. At the time I knew nothing about them, but have been a fan eve since. From White Zombie to his solo band, and all of his movie’s.


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 .

  2002 was the first time photographing the band at Alpine Valley in East Troy Wisconsin. Since then I have shot nearly 60 shows all over the country. Festivals have included Ozzfest , Mayhem Fest , Uproar , Rock On The Range , Louder Than Life and others.

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
