Now that it is officially the end of Summer I wanted to reflect on what a great time it has been. Early on in the year I was extremely fortunate to be awarded for the second year in a row the top music photographer at the Asbury Music Awards. I also was one of the event photographers at this years Light of Day event in Asbury Park which allowed me to photograph some of the most amazing musicians from the area including Bruce Springsteen. I continue on a weekly basis to balance out the local scene and mainstream. I have adored so many live in person conversations about real life as I make made my rounds from venue to venue sometimes covering three or four venues in one night. I covered some major shows this year from Rob Zombie, Incubus, Slipknot, Primus to Janes Addiction, Corey Taylor, Social Distortion and hundreds more. None of this would be possible without all the publications and venues I provide coverage for. Thanks to Pop-Break.com, National Rock Review, Starland Ballroom, The Stone Pony, PNC Bank Arts Center, The Asbury Park Yacht Club, The Saint, The Wonder bar, The Court Tavern, Asbury Lanes and any where else I managed to support the music scene. I still will continue to strive towards new levels as I do my best to balance out my personal, family, work and music life. I don’t think I will ever get used to the amount of people that are appreciative of what I do but it’s definitely pretty cool. I’m am just following my passion for music through my lens and all I hope is that when it’s all done I have made an impact that lasts for many years after.
Thanks again to everyone who takes the time to come over and say hi it means the world to me.
