About Author

Music to me is the inspiration to life. I've always had to listen to a song no matter what emotions were charging through me at the moment. I love shooting shows because there is nothing like capturing the indescribable moment where a musician reaches the high point of his/her performance. There is a sudden second in this moment where there is constant battle of beauty and vibrancy in light and the despair in darkness.
