New Orleans Street Musicians: The Story Behind the Image

Night descended on the New Orleans skyline while neon signs advertising hot women, big beers, and hurricanes pulsed along the narrow corridor of Bourbon Street. Bouncers lured middle-aged men wearing red, blue-green Hawaiian flowered shirts into the dark recesses of nightclubs. Many visitors gravitated to this spot as if it was the mecca of New…

“You Can Call Me Zoomer.” The Story Behind the Image

  Back in 2012 during a road trip to the East Coast, I came upon a unique art installation along the side of Highway 171 just south of Pittsburgh, Kansas. As I pulled the car over and got out to take a few pictures, a lady approached from the shadowed porch of a small white house. The…

Barney: The Story Behind the Image

  Motorcycle fanatics ride into Sturgis like a roaring thunderstorm sweeping across the South Dakota prairie, their bikes streaking down Main Street in bright flashes of metallic blue, candy apple red, sun yellow, and every other hue of the spectrum. For seven summer days, Sturgis is transformed from a quiet little town along I-90 into…

My Humble Begining in Concert Photography: The Story Behind the Image

Concert photographers are usually ushered to the front of the stage just moments before the band hits the stage, but on those rare occasions where there’s a bit of downtime before that happens, I like to talk with the fans. Often times the questions I’m asked are “how did you get this cool ass gig?”…

Down on Royal: The Story Behind the Image

I heard him before I met him down on Royal Street in New Orleans that day, his raspy young voice overtaking the occasional delivery truck or police siren while violently strumming his guitar. His name was John Norcross. John was from Champaign, Illinois, and a self-described “young 21,” who had been on the road for…

The Story Behind the Photo

  Spring, 2009 | Santa Fe, New Mexico Every image has a story behind it.  The ringing of his spurs carried over the roar of motorhomes and cars whizzing passed his worn-out cowboy boots as he crested the hill outside of  Santa Fe. The horses trailed close behind the man as they strolled together in…

Honky Tonking Snapshots on Broadway

The last time I was in Nashville I didn’t have my camera. As a music photographer, especially one “Honky Tonking” on Broadway, it was pure blasphemy. As a music fan, however, it was intoxicating. Musicians were everywhere, and they were good. I mean really good. From Legends Corner and the storied stages of Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge to…

Cakery Creation & The Workings of a Cake Wars Champion

I tend to throw planning and agendas out the window when it comes to road trips because it always leads to great memories and new experiences. On this trip to Ormond Beach again, however, I broke with tradition simply for the fact that it was absolutely necessary to visit Cakery Creation. Here’s why. Two years…

Donnie’s Donuts, Sweet Spot of Ormond Beach: Why You Should Visit

I’m a big fan of donuts, something you may already know if you’ve read my previous posts. But if you missed it, I’ll say it again. Cake donuts and yeast donuts. Jelly, sugar, glazed, and powdered donuts. Bear claws, fritters, twists, chocolate, Bavarian creme, Cruller, French Cruller, Long Johns, old-fashioned, fancy, and donut holes. I…
