About Me

I'm huge on the mentor/mentee dynamic, my alias is a testament to this and my blog's name is a nod to Henri Cartier-Bresson. I'm inspired to be in the company of Adams, Weston, McGinley, Evans, Winogrand, Mapplethorpe, Richardson, Stieglitz, etc... Not to say I'm looking to emulate or plagiarize their work but rather to create my own that can stand or more aptly, hang, besides theirs.

Just as greatness motivates me as an artist and influences my art, so does mediocrity. Lousy photographers and boring photography fuel my rage fire. My main goal is to develop a body of work that will stand the test of time and transcend the transient. I'm far more prolific than my portfolio here indicates.

I've been shooting professionally at age 16, "almost famous" feels like a little documentary to me. I began shooting concert photography, shooting most of the major rock and roll acts of the late 90's, if you can name them, I've probably shot them. I've been published and have exhibited work. I've had the incredible fortune of doing a lot of cool shit and I want to do more. I'm ready to take my work and my ideas to the next level.

I work in the music industry as a production manager for one of the best venues in Southern California and as the Founder and CCO of a bad ass concert production company. Few things bring me as much joy as bridging my two passions, music and photography. Sometimes that means shooting the musicians and sometimes that just means shooting with music playing.

I share a studio with an incredibly talented artist. Comfort is a must to creating lasting, meaningful works. I will do my best to create an environment that fosters comfort and creativity.
