As always, when time allows I have been going back through my archives of images from the past 20 years and adding content from past shows and shoots to the site.
This weekend’s update is the the Artist Promo/Portrait/Studio section. Additions include photos to the Hellyeah gallery from four different shoots with the band in 2006, 2007 and 2010.
Includes never before seen images from the bands first photo shoot that we did in October of 2006 in Chicago over two days for the album cover artwork and press for the debut cd, which landed at #8 on the Billboard charts.

Another addition are photos of SLAYER and EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt , taken in my studio in February of 2016 on an off night from the Slayer/Testament tour. Gary had just received his new ESP GUITARS custom guitar painted in his own blood by artist VINCENT CASTIGLIA. This was the first shoot he had done with it , and what an amazing piece of art it is ! As a long time fan of both bands it was an honor to have him along with Chuck and Tiffany Billy in the studio followed by some amazing Bbq.

Final addition is a gallery of photos from a couple photos shoots over the years with friend Chuck Garric , bassist of Alice Cooper and front man of his own band Beasto Blanco that features Alice’s daughter Calico Cooper ! If you have not heard them yet , do yourself a favor and go pick up BOTH of their cd’s ASAP . Best description of Beasto Blanco is that if Motorhead and Rob Zombie had a baby it would be Beasto Blanco. Images from our first shoot together for Esp guitars back in 2007 before an Alice Cooper show as well as photos we took at The SLaughterhouse Haunted House in Nashville in September of 2016 can be seen here : Chuck Garric photos
