I am self taught photographer from New York. Starting as a hobby back in 1981, I photographed many subjects but has always had a niche for concerts. What began as a hobby, started a career in photojournalism for the local newspaper. Unfortunately the career ended shortly as there was not a need for a "concert" photographer full-time. The only show contracted was of the late-great James Brown. Photographing newsworthy images was not the style I wanted to pursue so I ended my "career" as a photographer. Although the career ended, the passion for taking pictures was not forgotten and I had the opportunity to take many, many pictures across the country with that same passion I always had.
