head shotI am a free-lance live music/concert photographer who has lived in Tucson since 1973. I studied photography at Pima College under Luis Carlos Bernal. From him I learned to love the immediacy of unposed images, and the vibrancy of Southwestern culture.

 I’m the house photographer for several Tucson venues: the Rialto TheatreFox Theatre,  and the Rhythm and Roots Concert Series. I’m also a photography stringer for the Tucson Weekly, and work freelance for various venues in and around Tucson and Phoenix.  My photos have been on several covers of the No Depression weekly e-newsletters and featured in their online gallery.  My work is featured in Crawdaddy’s Rock Art Rock Gallery archives. I also displayed several works at the Tucson Shot Rock gallery show, and one of the photos is featured on its website.

The Tucson Weekly and Tempo Magazine  run my photos with their live music reviews and blogs. I shot stills for NPR’s Artists Den show featuring Amos Lee at the Fox Theater in Tucson. I’ve also had the pleasure of working with Alice Cooper on many occasions (Alice Cooper’s Christmas Pudding 2011 and 2012 and his Rock & Roll Golf Classic 2012 and 2013). I also shoot concerts for several of the Tucson radio stations and publicity stills for local musicians.
