About me....well...this bit is less proffessional looking and has horrid punctuation lol
I accidentally became a photographer shooting bands with my camera at HaVoK back in 02/06. My partner Naika started noticing I had an "eye" and pushed me to pursue it further....quite by accident I suddenly was shooting for clothing companies...getting paid for concert shots...having Models ask me to shoot them and then getting great compliments and advice from guys like Phil [Lithium Picnic] when he came to HaVoK and online and from Dustin[Section 6] also...next thing you know I was spending hours in front of the computer editing and shooting like mad....and there you have it...my story...
I personally strive to be as good as I can be...then better than that...funny how we find our creative outlets isn't it? Ill be putting more work out and up and changing fairly regularly...
Ill also be putting out some work thats abit more on the off kilter side....exercising my demons lol...twisted....
a photo is a moment captured and perfect forever...but who's twisted perception of perfection will it be?

Much credit goes out to ALL models and bands I work with. they make it all easier by being so beautiful. I also credit Naika "Whisperwish" Malveaux for pushing me to pursue this as well as Phil Warner of Lithium Picnic and Dustin of Section 6 for the time they've both spent giving tips/tricks/advice and for the amazing work they consistently put out that inspires me to push harder to improve my own.
First off as many of you know SG is attacking Phil Warner of Lithium Picnic with an unfair and false lawsuit. There are so many details that rather than go into them here Ill link you to it...give it all a read...its some interesting stuff.
All details and answers to alot of questions are available there.
Secondly...Lithium Picnic/Phil Warner is my idol when it comes to photography. I have said it before and Ill say it again...He constantly and consistently puts out amazing work that both inspires and pushes me as a photographer and artist to create better and better work myself.
Many people dont know that it was conversations at club HaVoK back in the day over vodka with Phil that really got me into photography. You also may not know that he offered really good and sound advice as well as showed me a few things that while by no means comprehensive...aimed me in the right direction without making me just another clone. In a cut throat business and field like photography he didnt have to do these things...but he did...and I want to give something back.
To this end I [after much planning and organizing] did a Lithium Picnic/SG inspired shoot. Once the layout for it is done, I will post the finished piece in this series containing all 3 ladies and make it available as a limited run print.
The majority of the money from this printing[minus expenses and fees etc] will go directly to help with the Viva le Picnic relief fund. Each of the limited edition prints will come with a monogrammed fork that was actually used in the shoots with the number of the print on it.
I truly hope you all enjoy this series and the teaser image posted here. Many thanks go out to Kendra aka Rabid Girl Scout/Doll SIckness for hair and makeup during this series who can be reached here
