Profile

Rocktographer / Musicologist
Professional Concert Photographer / concert promoter / Musicologist / music historian / Film Maker / classic film geek / occasional guitar player

Captivated by music at an early age, I started collecting records and studying music history at 3 years old through my parents' antique store. Record cover art was an inspirational factor in my eventually becoming a professional photographer. I have been lucky enough to work with legends such as B.B. King and Alice Cooper, as well as build friendships and working relationships with many of the photographers who inspired me by creating many of the most iconic music images (album covers, magazine covers, etc) of the past 50+ years.

I'm also a film school grad and am moving towards shooting music videos and music history documentaries.

I own and operate elvisrecords.ca. With over 700 unique Canadian Elvis releases already in my own database, my goal is to create the most comprehensive database of every Canadian Elvis record ever released. elvisrecords.ca is in its first phases with 78, 45, EP, and LP label guides and a list of every Canadian Elvis 78 - some unique to Canada. More to come.

I also admin several record, CD, video, and record groups on Facebook. I love to learn and share with others. :)
