Jazz Photographer in New Orleans...

Most of my personal work lately has been photographing the jazz music scene and documenting the disappearing historic landscape of old architecture, vintage signs, old water towers, cemeteries and other points of interest in New York City, Los Angeles and across the South primarily in my hometown of New Orleans - a collection of images that embody both a sense of romance and nostalgia. My work is in public and private collections, among them the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans and the Louisiana State Museum, and my photographs have appeared in The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Vogue, New York Post, US Weekly, USA Today, Elle, MTV, VH-1, New York Magazine, JazzTimes, DownBeat, Where New Orleans and many others. Also I'm a member of IATSE Local 600 (International Cinematographers Guild) and work as a stills photographer in the motion picture and television industry - I was the unit photographer for HBO’s season two finale of “True Blood” and HBO’s pilot “Treme” by David Simon here in New Orleans, along with Season 1 and 2 of TNT's “Memphis Beat” and most recently A+E's “Breakout Kings.” I'm represented internationally by Getty Images and WireImage.com, and European PressPhoto Agency; and a member of The National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences and Jazz Journalists Association.
