Jenni Rivera

In 2011 I had the privilege of photographing Jenni Rivera in concert at the Valley View Casino Center. She had the crowd hanging on every word. Jenni died in plane crash on December 9, 2012. Very sad news.   She was a real talent and a great stage presence. It is...

Skid Row, Warrant and shooting with friends.

Friday night I photographed Warrant and Skid Row in concert. Pretty good lighting, intimate venue but no photo pit. Sounds pretty standard… What made this a really fun shoot for me was that I got to shoot with my buddy Scott Diussa for the first time…....

Being the house photographer for a multi purpose venue means I get to photograph some really fun stuff. Last night I got to photograph the Los Angeles Lakers vs the Sacramento Kings in the last preseason NBA game. Seriously, I got to sit on the floor and photograph an...
Barenaked Ladies – Concert shoot

Barenaked Ladies – Concert shoot

Yesterday I realized that I hadn’t posted the photos from the Last Summer on Earth Tour. It might have had something to do with the coming home to one of our dogs having been skunked. So here are the photos of the Barenaked Ladies from the Southern California...

The Black Keys – Concert shoot

The Black Keys – Concert shoot

The Black Keys came to San Diego and rocked the Valley View Casino Center. It was a pleasure to be able to shoot a drummer right up front. The high energy show was a real treat to shoot and the hardest part was to narrow down the shots to a reasonable number. All...

Steel Pulse – Concert shoot

Steel Pulse is a band that I get to shoot on a regular basis. Seriously, how lucky am I? I have been able to shoot Steel Pulse  for a few years now and I strive to capture the energy of the band each and every time. Sometime it’s a little more difficult. The...
