When you’re not photographing great concerts, writing about them, interviewing artists, doing album reviews… what can we find you doing? Hanging out with my chocolate lab, Buddy Bacon Bocephus. Photographing ranchers, cowboys, or beautiful landscapes…… plotting out the next artist/concert to shoot and doing the required legwork to make it happen.
