The Lower Lights, December 2013

Shot these guys last week. It was a great show and the Masonic Temple was a great place to see them. The last time I saw them was in October of 2012 at a rooftop show. They were great there, but this indoor stage and venue was more suited to them. Given their size,...

Nels Cline with Wilco at Red Butte

This one just had to be black and white because it reminded me of high ISO, super grainy film from back in my print publishing days. Back then, I shot with a Canon Elan and I thought I had hit the jackpot in the camera department. Scanning 3200 ISO film added more...

Taken at Red Butte Amphitheater, June 25, 2012. * * * Daily affirmation: Sometimes you just have to say WTF and do the thing you maybe shouldn’t. We learn this from the classics, in particular, Risky Business starring Tom Cruise. Share...
