As this blog evolves I have decided to add current images on a variety of subjects. Some of these images are shot digitally and for some I continue to use traditional 35mm film. Back in the late '70s and early '80s, I photographed a lot of bands. I did album covers and publicity shots for many mainstream musicians but I loved the alternative music scene. My current subject matter includes urban environments and anything else I find visually interesting.
Produced by Kim Fowley. Gilby Clarke (guitar, vocals); Jonathan Daniel (bass, vocals,); Kyle Vincent (lead vocals, rhythm guitar); and John Schubert (drums, vocals). Gilby Clarke went on to Guns n' Roses
Dane Conover (aka Trees) The 'New Wave' album Sleep Convention 1982, (Produced by Kim Fowley).
This was before digital image processing and no darkroom manipulation was used to create this image. This was shot as a double exposure 4x5 format with fluorescent and strobe lighting to capture the analog video synth image. Dane had to hold the pose for at least 30 seconds.
