Live images of musicians in rock, metal, noise, and experimental sound.

This is an ongoing project to showcase my favorite musicians live and in the moment. It began in 2011 when I decided I should try to get some memorable images from some of the gigs I was going to. I brought my Pentax K-1000 loaded with a roll of Ilford Delta 3200 to a Melvins show and took some tremendously underexposed and out of focus shots. Since then I’ve picked up better technique and better equipment.

I enjoy the challenge of capturing beautiful, iconic images of bands in environments that can make photography very difficult. Many of these images were shot in dimly lit bars and small clubs.

I intend to keep these images online and the site ad-free. Thank you for visiting.
