GeneralProfessional Bio In my youth I enjoyed going to concerts. I would sneak in an inexpensive camera,often my Mother's. This m.o. only began to whet my appetite for the artistry,action and final product documenting that moment in time, taking place in front of my eyes. Graduating from high school, most of my friends wanted a car as their graduation gift, but I asked for a camera and received a 35mm Minolta X-370. With my new camera I began with a thirst to study and read all I could about photography. I absorbed everything I could from the professionals. I realized that practice was essential to experience. I began working as a production assistant for a promoter doing shows in the Salt Lake Valley. I worked there for seven years doing photography, booking and promoting. During this time I also did work for a couple of local magazines,and was a member of the Wasatch Music Coalition. At one of these coalition meetings I began bantering names around for my new business and magazine, with a few of my associates. The manager of the venue I was working suggested S.L.A.M. Magazine, Salt Lake Area Music Magazine. I liked it and registered the name with the State of Utah. While working for the production company one of my duties was that of a runner. I found myself with people such as the Vice President of Arista Records who helped arrange for me to shoot bigger bands. I also became good friends with the Regional Manager of Atlantic Records who boosted my career arranging for me to shoot, thus broadening my experience with the internationally known bands. With help from these friends, I was shooting the well established icons such as: Kiss, Motley Crue, and VanHalen, just to name a few. Today I continue to shoot local and national bands.
