This is a personal project that was done with my friend and fellow musician, Johnny.
This is going to be printed using a metallic finish that should really pop the vibrant colors.
Dimensions will be 12" x 24". Thanks Johnny!

As a professional photographer and self-diagnosed 'gadget fiend' I should be slightly embarrassed by the makeshift process I used to achieve these images. But in this digital age we sometimes forget that creativity doesn't always have to be achieved with expensive tools, just a vision and lots of free time... or in this case, a sponge, a cake pan, and a few "doh!" moments.

A sponge was mounted 2 feet above a clear glass cake pan filled with water. All sat on top of a table made out of two saw horses and a scrap piece of my driveway. The camera was set up on a tripod. I poured water into the sponge then waited until the stream, flowing through the sponge, ended and the drips began. Trial and error was used to time the correct moment to take each shot.

The colors were achieved with pieces of construction paper in the background. All 'poses', individual prints, were taken using a shutter speed of 1/2000 of a second. All poses are as they were captured by the camera, none were manipulated using imaging software. The water took on a personality of its own, I just sifted through the RAW files to find it."

I had the pleasure of photographing the Slaughter and "Ratt" concert at The Mississippi Moon Bar in Dubuque, Iowa on Saturday night. I met Mark Slaughter, Dana Strum and the rest of the band. They are all great guys and I look forward to the next time I have the opportunity to work with them again.

30 Rock

Shot taken on the ride to the top of Rockefeller Center in New York City. Can't explain the face in the photo. Why am I not reflected in the plexiglass ceiling of the elevator?
