On March 2nd, 2002 I took a couple pictures of Cadillac Blindside and Pretty Girls Make Graves at the 7th Street Entry on a little film point and shoot camera. Little did I know that 10 years later I'd be shooting up to 80 shows a  year. Since I've been doing this for 10 years I'd like to commemorate with a hardcover book. Digital printing on demand has made it possible to do a self published short run of books, I'd like to make a limited series of 50 hard cover books (all books will be signed and numbered). I'm also going to do a limited edition of a couple of my favorite photos to do a one time run of 12x18 prints which for now will only be available to people who back the project. Thank you for your support over the years and to hopefully many more years of shooting bands!

If you want a preview of the kind of photos I'll be putting in the book, here is a pretty good start. Currently the plan is for a full color, 50 page, hardcover 8.25 x 10.75 inch book most likely with some sort of introduction.

All book and print purchases include shipping to you or if you're local I'll deliver if you want.

UPDATE: If you'd like an idea of what might be included in the book, here is a chronological set from the beginning of what will be picked from. I will have some sample pages soon as well to post screen shots of.

FAQ

  • No, this is it for this book. They'll all be signed and numbered and you'll have to wait until another anniversary for a new book like this.
