Justin Bieber

There are a lot of kids in Anaheim this morning that are probably falling asleep in class. Thats because Justin Bieber played at the Honda Center in Anaheim last night. While I was not there for the end of the show, so I have no idea what time the show ended, I do...

Slayer

This was my second time shooting Slayer. The first time was back in 2009 at the Mayhem Festival. This time they were the headliners at the Los Angeles stop of the Jagermeister Music tour. I had already shot two bands that night, Anthrax and Megadeth and the lighting...

Megadeth

Another band that I had never shot and was really looking forward to shooting; Megadeth. We were led into the photo pit with plenty of time to get situated and once again I started on stage left and made my way to stage right during the three songs. Megadeth was...

Anthrax

I have never shot Anthrax before and was really looking forward to it. But let me backtrack a little here and talk about the venue and the set up. It was the last night of the Jagermeister Music Tour and the show was at the Gibson Amphitheater located at Universal...

One Eskimo

Last night I had the privilege to shoot One Eskimo at Anthology here in San Diego. One Eskimo is Kristian Leontiou, Adam Falkner on drums, Jamie Sefton on bass & horns and Peter Rinaldi on guitar and they create great music. The venue is not your typical bar by...

Epicenter Twenty Ten

Talk about a concert photographers dream: Kiss, Eminem, Bush, House of Pain, Papa Roach and more, and thats just Saturday. What a great lineup especially for photographers, since all the bands are really visual. That was the lineup for the Saturday of the Epicenter...

Weezer : Axe Music “One Night Only”

Last night Hollywood was rocked by Weezer. It was time for the Axe Music “One Night Only” concert series to hit the west coast. Axe Music had turned the Dunes Inn Motel on Sunset Blvd into kick ass Rock’nRoll venue for Weezer. This show was both the...

Billy Idol & Steve Stevens rock Hollywood

Night three Same band Very different location. This time the show was at the Palladium in Hollywood, CA. This show was a mix of the good, the bad and the annoying. First off, a 120 mile drive took close to 4 hours due to the traffic. This was Saturday traffic which is...

Night two with Billy Idol & Steve Stevens

Same venue, same band, different night. This was my second night shooting Billy Idol with Steve Stevens at the Pechanga Casino and Resort. I approached this show with same attitude as the previous show but this time I was ruthless in the post processing. I shot the...

Billy Idol & Steve Stevens in concert

Billy Idol brought his latest show to Southern California last night for the first of two shows at the Pechanga Hotel and Casino. I was lucky enough to be allowed to photograph the show. Now this was not the first time I have shot Billy and Steve but it has been two...

EW / SyFy Party Red Carpet

Shooting red carpet arrivals at the Entertainment Weekly / SyFy party at the San Diego Comic Con was really interesting and boring all at the same time. Let me explain…. When you shoot red carpet arrivals, there is basically just a stream of subjects being...

Comic Con: Sunday

Sunday…. the last day of the comic con is usually a little calmer than the other three days but that doesn’t mean much when you spend the day in a room full of fans of the TV shows, Supernatural, American Dad, Glee, Sons of Anarchy and It’s Always...

Comic Con: Saturday

Saturday is usually the busiest day at the Comic Con. This year really was no different, especially for me. I started the day late knowing that it was going to run late. I was set to shoot the red carpet arrivals at the Entertainment Weekly / SyFy party that was going...

Comic Con: Friday

Friday started with a press line. This time it was for Drive Angry, the new Nicolas Cage movie. I got to shoot press shots of Patrick Lussier, Amber Heard, Nicolas Cage and William Fichtner. Then it was off to check out the people and the costumes. I didn’t go...

San Diego Comic Con: Thursday

Thursday was busy day. Seems that the bigger the Comic Con gets, the more Hollywood seems to like it. I heard that the lines for  HALL H started at 4am for 10am sneak peaks at upcoming movies, and the BALLROOM 20 line went up and down the back stairs of the convention...

San Diego Comic Con: Wednesday

The San Diego Comic Con kicked off on Wednesday night. It doesn’t seem like it has been a whole year since it was here. Not much to say about the preview night, it involved eating, dealing with credentials, a beer or two and then walking around the expo floor....
