My unique skill is shooting photos of jazz artists during live performances using only available light. However, taking the photo is just part of the process. After I shoot the photo there's a great deal of post shoot work where I turn the photo into something that's truly an original, unique piece of photographic art worthy of being in your collection that you can enjoy every day.
ABOUT ME: I'm a former jazz player turned jazz photographer so I can truly relate to the musicians. I shoot at jazz venuse in Los Angeles such as Vibrato Jazz Grill, Catalina Jazz, Vitello's, The Baked Potato, Blue Whale, The Key Club, The Jazz Bakery and more. I usually shoot two or three times a week. As much as I love shooting I love the music even more. My photos have appeared in the LA Weekly, LAJazz.com, LA Jazz Scene magazine and many more publications. My photos have been used by many artists for their CD artwork and on their websites. Artists such as Herb Alpert, Lani Hall, John Proulx, The Gypsy Allstars, Anna Mjoll, Fabiana Passoni, Orchestre Surreal, Judith Hill, V.R. Smith, Pat Senatore, Sketchy Black Dog, Dee Dee McNeil, Darius Campbell and many others.
