Blatant Promo is a good thing

Photoshelter was kind enough to do a nice little piece about me and my collection of Washington DC Stock Photography. I don't do it often but occasionally do allow my serious self to come out and play. I give full credit to Andrew Fingerman, VP of Marketing with Photoshelter, for editing down my responses into what turned out to be a well written interview. I most certainly appreciate the exposure this article provided. Nothing wrong with a little blatant promo, especially now, working hard to survive the Economic Recovery.

Down by the River

My brother David and and I had a chance last week to see Gov't Mule play a show at the National Harbor Summer Concert Series. Any day you get to see my favorite guitar on the planet, Warren Haynes, is a good day. In this case a wonderful perfectly pleasant evening. I had never been to the National Harbor for a show and had no idea what to expect. It turned out the venue was great. On the river, during a beautiful sunset, a cool relaxed crowd, ample beer tents and plenty of room to roam around, all added up to create a mood that all was right with the World. My hard working little Canon G-9 performs beautifully for so many things but a little limiting in the low light concert photography department. (click images to enlarge)
