Into The Light is a twenty year retrospective coffee table book of my award-winning music photography featuring a foreword by rock legend Steve Miller and showcasing musical luminaries such as B.B. King, Eric Clapton, Slash, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, Santana, Aretha Franklin, James Brown, U2, The Who, Pink Floyd, and The Rolling Stones just to name a few...
After thousands of miles traveled, sleepless nights spent editing and twenty years into my journey as a music photographer, I decided it was time to turn my collection into something I could share with music and art lovers everywhere. My love for music began at age four when I started learning to play the cello and then into my teens when I first heard the opening riffs of Led Zeppelin’s “Communication Breakdown” and instantly switched to guitar. As a musician and music fan, photography has allowed me to channel that passion. This collection of photos are for those who want to know the magic that was watching B.B. King pour his heart and soul into his guitar or the magnetism that was the late great Sharon Jones. I’ve captured these moments to last forever and that's why I have decided to embark on this "Into The Light" Kickstarter Campaign and I'd love for you to join me in this endeavor.

Risks and challenges
The risks and challenges when publishing a photo book include the possibility of delay, however Insight Editions is very experienced at dealing with the production and printing challenges involved in making exceptional photography books.
