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 .
Anthrax is an American thrash metal band from New York City, formed in 1981 by rhythm guitarist Scott Ian and bassist Dan Lilker. The group was considered one of the leaders of the thrash metal scene during the 1980s. Of the “Big Four” thrash metal bands (the others being Metallica, Megadeth and Slayer), Anthrax were the only band from the East Coast. As of April 2017, the band has released 11 studio albums, several other albums, and 26 singles, including collaborating on a single with American hip hop group Public Enemy. According to Nielsen SoundScan, Anthrax sold 2.5 million records in the United States from 1991 to 2004, with worldwide sales of 10 million.
Anthrax’s lineup has changed several times over their career. The band has had a number of vocalists including Neil Turbin, Joey Belladonna, Dan Nelson and John Bush. Founding member Scott Ian and early arrival Charlie Benante, who joined Anthrax in 1983, are the only band members to appear on every album. Bassist Frank Bello has played on every album, except for the band’s debut Fistful of Metal, which featured Dan Lilker. In 2010, Belladonna returned to Anthrax and has since recorded two more studio albums with the band, Worship Music (2011) and For All Kings (2016)
The Black Label Society photo gallery has been updated now with images from 40 concerts. Over the past 16 years I have over one hundred concerts with the band around the country. Shows on Ozzfest , Gigantour, Rock On The Range, Rocklahoma and numerous others. Images from videos and inside the recording studio to appearances at Namm and The Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. Tonight’s addition of photos brings the gallery total to over 400 shots since 2001. My photographs of the band have appeared countless magazine around the world. Endorsement ads and posters for Gibson, Emg, Marhshall , Cellestion and more. The multi million selling video game Guitar Hero even used one on the box cover for the first game.
In 2005 I did 32 shows across the country with the band as well as in the recording studio and tour rehearsals. Images from behind the scenes on the set of the In This River video as well.
One of my favorite bands to shoot in the world is most definitely In This Moment. It has been a truly unique experience watching the band evolve from what was in the beginning, an opening stage act on Ozzfest to what is now a band headlining their own national tours .
Their image has been a constant evolution, that continues to grow each year. Their concerts have become come well known for the several costume changes and on-stage imagery that constantly changes through their performance. After having spent several tours together and many other events, I am honored to consider them great friends.
My portfolio of In This Moment has has been updated with all of the individual photo galleries from the fourteen shows that I have photographed, including several festivals such as the Mayhem Festival, Rock On The Range, Welcome To Rockville and Louder Than Life.
You can view over one hundred concert photos from several shows at this link:
In This Moment are currently signed to Atlantic records and are in the writing process for their sixth studio album. They just rolled out on what is sure to be the first of many tours this year. Past albums have spawned crowd favorites like “Gun Show,” “Blood,” “Adrenalize” and numerous others.
In This Moment is sponsored by Monster Energy Drinks, Schecter Guitars and EMG Pickups.
In what seems to becoming a never ending effort, when time allows I have been going through my archives and adding images from the past of several bands. Most recent gallery to be updated is the addition of literally hundreds of photos of Black Label Society from several shows across the country in 2004, 2005 and 2006 from the spring , summer and fall tours including Ozzfest. That brings the total number of images for viewing now up to 400 from over 30 different shows ! Between 2001 and 2016 I have had the pleasure and honor of photographing the band over 100 times around the USA on and offstage including tour rehearsals, in the recording studio, on the set of videos and more. I will continue to add and share some of my favorite shots from the shows and events over time.
Over the course of the past 15 years my images of Zakk and other members of the band have appeared in magazines worldwide , posters, t shirts, home dvd’s, catalogs, and even on the box cover of the multi million selling video game Guitar Hero. Numerous promotional ads for companies that include : Washburn Guitars, Warwick, Emg Pickups, Dunlop, Marshall, Celestion, Tonepros , Pearl and many others.

AS I have mentioned before, as time allows I will continue to add images on and off stage from all of your favorite bands from the last 17 years of my career, in order by date and show. In honor of the Halloween season, I have spent several hours the past couple weeks going through the archives and digging out some of my favorite Rob Zombie photos fro past tours and adding them to the site. There are now over 200 new and previously unseen images from 25 different shows from 2010 and 2013 tours, as well as 8 shows on the 2005 Ozzfest tour that saw Zombie performing a stripped down set headlining the second stage. Rob is one of the absolute best front men in the entire industry , and continually puts on an incredible show that rivals anything KISS did in the 70s. Always a high energy show and that attacks all of your senses. At some point in the future I will add more images from other Zombie tours, going back to the first time I photographed Rob Zombie on Ozzfest in 1999. I have also had some off stage portrait sessions with members of his band various projects with Tommy Clufetos, John 5 and Joey Jordison that I will add to the Artist promos section.

In honor of the Halloween season being upon us, in my never ending effort to add old content to the site I have added LOTS of old images of Halloween shock rockers Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson. The Rob Zombie gallery has been updated with images from 9 of the 26 shows I photographed in various cities in 2012 on the Mayhem festival, Uproar and Rock On The Range. There are also photos from several shows from 2005’s Ozzfest tour that saw Zombie headlining the 2nd stage. As time allows I will continue to add images from past tours going back to 2004. I have had the pleasure of photographing the band nearly 100 times on and off stage over the past 11 years, including some portrait sessions with John5 , former drummer Tommy Clufetos and Joey Jordison that have appeared in magazines worldwide.

I have also added Marilyn Manson photos from 2 shows. Photos from one show on the 2001 Ozzfest tour and Manson’s hometown appearance in Columbus Ohio at the 2012 Rock on The Range festival. I have photographed Manson a handful of times starting in 1997, many of them still on film negatives that need to be scanned in. Always an entertaining show, and you never know what to expect .
