kindly comments from music mavens

what I really enjoy about your photography is the way it catches the most human and "everyday" side of my favourite rockstars

they seem to catch the artists at the right moment. the black and white ones are atmospheric. in short great photos

you make the images of the artists come to life and leave me wanting to know more about the story behind them

karen t

you have taken some great shots of rock & punk icons which capture the personality of the artists

your photographs are that smiling joyous moment captured.... you are the eyes for someone who wasn't there except in spirit

I love the light in your photos... also your subjects always stand out - almost in 3D

for me the thing about your photography is that there seems to be a real connection between you and the subject
