I’ve photographed scores of local and international musicians. My photos have been published in Facebook pages, websites, posters, YouTubes, and CD jackets.
Marvin Shields, Jr., an enthusiastic and skilled bass player, shown here performing with hip hop band Global Heat at the Experience Music Project, Seattle.
Marvin can always be counted on for his tasteful but punchy playing and his great big smile.
Kalissa Hernandez of the Vancouver, British Columbia bands “Locarno” and “The Paper Boys.” This shot was taken at Columbia City Theater in Seattle.
South African songwriter Johnny Clegg has been playing for decades. When his racially mixed group Juluka was starting out, apartheid prohibited them from performing in public spaces. In this photo, he performs at the Seattle Zoo’s summer concert series. Johnny’s long-time singing partner, Mandisa Dlanga, below, still performs with him.

Tor Dietrichson plays percussion in a Latin jam at the Owl ‘n Thistle in Seattle, Washington.
Cary Black of Olympia, is one of my (and many others’) favorite bass players in the region. He’s also a fine producer of many recording projects.
