I hope you like my comments and photography focused local San Diego and my favorite popular bands. I’m a supporter in local music and have been working in the San Diego music scene since the 1980’s.

I have been sneaking cameras into concerts for as long as I can remember. I’m working on getting the old (70’s and beyond) scanned and posted. Until then, you can check out what I have by clicking here.

If you are a band and like what you see, then contact me using the form below and lets talk! I am an award winning photographer that specializes in bands and live concerts and have an ability to “catch that right moment” since I am also a musician. Here are some bands I have taken pictures for:

National Acts

Southern California Bands
