Freelance photographer, Special Effects Make-Up Artist & Paranormal Investigator… three things that quickly describe me :)

I currently work with the following bands/artists as their photographer:
Rubix Kube
Grunge Junkies
Streetlight Circus

Photography is my passion. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been taking pictures. It took me a very long time to realize that I had a gift when it came to photography. It was just something that I loved to do. Someday I hope to have my own studio but until then, I will continue to take pictures of the things I love.

Anything historic/old is something I am interested in. I believe that it’s best to photograph these places now, so in the future we have something to look back on, when the earth has once again claimed its property and these places no longer exist. Living in NJ, there are all kinds of historic/old places to explore so I am never bored.

Hope you enjoy my pictures. Comments (both negative and positive) are always welcome. If you would like some other photo product (4×6 print, mouse pad, mug, etc) please send me an email and we’ll get it done for you.

I got 3rd place :)

I am pleased to announce that I tied for 3rd place in a photo contest at Eastern State Penitentiary, this past weekend. Site members were able to enter one color and one black & white photo. People visiting ESP were able to vote on each one. My black & white picture “Desolate B&W” was the one that tied for 3rd place. Thank you so much to those who voted for my picture.

They asked him for ID and he complied, and then they added him to the list. For what? Taking a picture! Please take some time to read his story and follow the links I posted below. I don’t want to ever have to read about you being added to the list. …
