    It's been awhile since I stopped in here, but I wanted to drop in and say hello.

    I'm from the northeast corner of the country (seacoast NH/ME) and primarily do concert photography, although I've branched out into just about everything. (Fine art, transportation, portraits, weddings, etc.) I still consider myself an amateur at this point. Just wanted to know if there was anyone else out there who shared my passion. Here's a few I'm particularly proud of. Let me know what you think.

    I shot these in Dallas a few months ago. I was really struggling to get the shutter speed and aperture settings correct for the subject matter.

    It took me awhile to get a feel for this kind of photography. I found that I had to use ISO 1600 exclusively, and I don't even go into a venue with any glass slower than f/2.8. It allows me to get shots like this:

    pretty cool, I like 1, 3, 5, 7, and the last one the most.

    looks like stuff I would expect to see on a newspaper write up or something,

    pretty nice... mine would of been all blurry... lol

    I took this picture of Preston - from the Ordinary boys. I tried for ages to get a really good shot - i liked how he looks more like a shadow. Since i was up the top i would say its pretty good.!!

    I think I am going to start photographing for some of St. Louis' local bands, I know a lot of kids in bands around here. I should have a album up within a month, it'll be my first one!
