Norah Jones

Norah Jones is one of those artists that comes along and gives music something it hasn’t had in a while….a dose sensational piano playing, a distinct voice, and a refreshing approach that has been influenced by everyone from Ella Fitzgerald to Ray Charles.  I was a blast to chat it up with Norah and document her show that evening.

Blake Shelton at The Paramount

Believe it or not, we almost talked Blake Shelton into going to a karaoke bar after this show at The Paramount Theater.  We all thought it would be funny for him to walk in and sing one of his songs to see how people would react.  Unfortunately, it didn’t happen.  He is currently a vocal coach on the NBCs “The Voice,” with Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, and Cee Lo Green.

Hillary Clinton at The Paramount

As house photographer of The Paramount Theater, I was asked to document Secretary of State and former First Lady Hillary Clinton’s visit to Charlottesville, Virginia when she was campaigning for President in 2008.  I had a few minutes with Mrs. Clinton backstage and certainly enjoyed the experience of photographing someone who will certainly go down as an influential figure in our nations history.

Bo Diddley – The Paramount Theater

 

I had the chance to not only photograph, but spend some time with Bo Diddley. I will never forget the experience as well as our conversation backstage about guitars and his great career. Many of you may know his music as well as his commercials with Bo Jackson in the 1980s, “Bo knows.”  Bo Diddley played the Paramount Theater

John Mayer – live at Jones Beach, New York

 

I have been waiting to start the music/performance category on our site for quite some time. As many of you know, I am an avid music fan and have had the opportunity to meet and photograph countless musicians and performers. I have to rank John Mayer as one of my personal favorites. I grew up a big Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimmie Vaughan, and Eric Clapton

One moment – getting ready at Veritas

 

Veritas weddings are so special to us, simply because they are in our own backyard, close to the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia.  Chloe and her staff can be commended constantly for their tireless work ethic and exceptional standards.  Ashley and Seth are good friends and I was honored beyond belief when
