I love Jazz music & Photography
I remember as a kid my dad would listen to the jazz station WRVR 106.7 while driving in the car, I always thought the music sounded cool even though I really didn’t know what it was called at the time. In my junior high school music class, for an assignment my dad helped me write an assignment on rhythm the artist of choice was “Wes Montgomery” the song was Eleanor Rigby. My dad had me breakdown the song and explain his song styling. I think it was at that point I really started to listen to jazz more over the years it bordered on addiction. Things didn’t work out with playing the saxophone in school but that’s life i guess. These days from time to time i’ll torture a minor scale on my Epiphone Emperor Regent.
I started taking photographs while in the military, wanting to document the different places I had visited so I can send the photos home to my family so they can see some of the places. Most of my photography these days border on fine art, I’ve just recently started taking photos in various jazz clubs in the New York area.
This site has been sometime in the making but I figured I would put the two together, to show my love for jazz music and photography. This is where I will display my best photographs.
All of the images here are for sale, they are printed as 12x18 photographs on high quality exhibit paper. Please email me for inquires.
If you’re looking for a photographer to do photos of you or your band contact me.
Over all, I think the main thing a musician would like to do is give a picture to the listener of the many wonderful things that he knows of and senses in the universe. . . That’s what I would like to do. I think that’s one of the greatest things you can do in life and we all try to do it in some way. The musician’s is through his music. - John Coltrane
