The Family Circus

The genesis & story behind this photoshoot comes down to celebrating Life & Family… and I am one blessed artist to have been a part of it.

Getting my Depeche Mode Fix

Strangelove-The Depeche Mode Experience To call Strangelove a cover band would completely diminish their skill and on-stage performance.  They are much more than that, in so much as I completely forgot that I was watching someone else singing a majority of my favorite songs from the last few decades.  Being at the front of the stage […]

Josie Pace | New Industrial Goddess

Ever since seeing a short expose on DetroitPerforms.org of Josie Pace, I was not going to pass up an opportunity to catch her live at a local venue.  Whatever it took, wherever it was, I was going to be stealing pixels!  Thanks to Small’s Hamtramck, I didn’t have to wait very long.  (This was only their […]

Rhythm Corps + Sponge wsg The Beggars

This photo series is dedicated to my Friend, Joe Grassi, who passed away too young.  It was Joe that originally introduced me to Rhythm Corps back in the late 80’s when we were both students at Cousino High School in Warren, MI and were aspiring DJ’s in the schools radio station, WPHS.  My first concerts […]

The Man Behind the Makeup

One of the best ways I can honor an Artist, and more importantly, Friend, on their Birthday is through imagery.  I was honored a few years back to capture the true Russ in all his simplicity in Detroit.  So, to the Man behind the makeup, I wish you a Happy Birthday and a year filled […]

Theatre Bizarre 2016

Ive been attending this visually stunning party since the days when it was held in the backyards of Detroit.  While those days were an awe-inspiring experience, the move to Detroit’s Masonic Temple […]

True Friends

There are people that you run across in Life that completely change everything. These two are at the top of my list. These photographs, done on the spur of the moment while working on a video project with them, is the best way I can express to them my Gratitude and Love for everything they […]

Event: 2016 Michigan Burlypicks

It is my heartfelt opinion, and recommendation, that you never pass up an opportunity to see a Burlesque show in Detroit.  The local talent is exceptional, and the national talent that visits is equally entertaining. These images were captured on April 29th 2016 at the Tangent Gallery in Detroit, MI at the 2016 Burlypicks Competition […]

Last Season at The Corner

Last Season at The Corner Photo Essay, Summer 1999 With all the changes taking place at the corner of Michigan and Trumbull these days with Detroit PAL taking over the site and building a new turf-based youth baseball facility, I wanted to post the series of photographs I took of the last season in 1999 before […]
