Popular Photography did a story on me called "Two Years Out: Sound and Vision" for their April issue of Popular Photography On Campus. If you don’t have access to the magazine, check it out full screen below!
“I have always been more interested in showing what an experience felt like rather than just showing what something looked like. I think every image is made up of the base layer of data and literal information-- but I always want my images to go beyond that layer, and show the emotional experience of what a moment feels like. [...] Photography lets you take an experience and express it in such a way that it is felt as a human story, and not just specific to one individual person or situation. As human beings we all tap into the same emotions, and as an artist I love the challenge of translating those emotions into visuals.”
Many thanks to Festicket for including me in the five photographer's they feature in their article "Music Photographers To Follow On Instagram!"
I have a photo spread of Duke Erikson of Garbage in the January 2016 issue of Premier Guitar! Duke is pictured with his "1998 Guild Starfire III modded with a Seymour Duncan Duncan Custom bridge pickup and a Tune-o-matic in place of the original floating. 'The guitar has been an integral sound of every Garbage record since 2.0,' says Erikson. 'We've certainly tested its mettle, and it has rarely failed us!'"

I have a photo of Mac McCaughan of Superchunk and founder of Merge Records in the latest issue of Premier Guitar. Featured here: Mac’s ‘70s #Gibson Marauder Custom loaded with the original Bill Lawrence-Designed humbuckers that McCaughan favors for clean sounds but can still #distort and sustain like the Melody Maker he played for years.
This month I have a photo of the beautiful and incredibly talented Rachel Goswell of Slowdive in Premier Guitar. Here she is with her No. 1; a 2014 Custom77 Roxy Hollowbody DL4 with a Custom77-designed P-90 in the neck and a hum bucker in the bridge position.
