About Me

I have been a professional freelance photographer for over 30 years, working in various commercial industries while also pursuing photography as a personal artistic expression. Throughout this time, live performance photography of jazz musicians has been the most challenging and artistically gratifying to me. It stems from my personal love of the music and my deep respect for the talented artists who create it.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
