a new gallery for the ones who make this rockin’ world go ‘round

“The smell of the greasepaint. The roar of the crowd.” Relatives will tell you I was a born ham and so it was no surprise I ended up onstage during my schooldays at Indiana University. Given, however, my draw to cameras and the visual side of things, it was less of a surprise that I found my way to an ad agency tv and radio production department, while picking up a real camera for the first time and exploring photography. The wrench in the works came when, for a bizarre set of reasons, that ad agency put me in charge of music production. So began my interaction with some of the greatest singers and musicians in existence. I continued my photographic interests yet one of my great regrets, however, is that during that period I was shy photographing people. As such I failed to see and take advantage of the incredible photo-ops right in front of me. After a long career in that realm, I worked my way into pursuing still photography full-time. Synchronicity went 360º as I began to be offered photo ops with onstage performers. I.E. I had a second chance and this time I would keep my eyes open and my camera at the ready. The ops keep coming. This year is my second year as a full-time Montauk resident and I found my way “off-season” into the cultural circles that introduced me to both the Montauk music scene via the good times of the Lynn Blue Band, as well as the dark carnival art music of Ryder Cooley and the Dust Bowl Faeries (thank you Watermill Center and Southampton Arts Center). And suddenly there was this question: how do I NOT have a gallery on my website dedicated to these dynamic beings? Issue resolved. Now I do & here it is.
