Just recently spent a week in Taos, Santa Fe, and Albuquerque, New Mexico, and had a blast! I would recommend a visit to the area to anyone! Seems as though late spring is the time to go. You can beat the crowds and the weather is perfect. Here is a selection of images from the trip. Thanks for looking!!
Great show at The Jinx Savannah last night. Headlining was a band from L.A. called Slothrust. Leah and her band, Kyle and Will, decided to completely blow the walls off the venue. Seriously… it’s open air now. For more about the band, visit slothrust.com.
Slothrust is principal songwriter, guitar player and unrepentant aesthete Leah Wellbaum, with drummer Will Gorin and bassist Kyle Bann. On their fourth full-length album The Pact, Slothrust constructs a luscious, ethereal cosmos perforated with wormy portals and magic wardrobes, demonstrating more clearly than ever the band’s deft shaping of contrasting sonic elements to forge a muscular sound that’s uniquely their own.
Aaron Diehl is a classically trained pianist and composer, who has made an indelible mark on the jazz world over the last 15 years. While showing a rare affinity for early jazz and mid-20th century “third-stream” music, his latest evolution comes as he begins to tackle modern classical works.
Having performed Gershwin with the New York Philharmonic, Cleveland Orchestra, and Los Angeles Philharmonic in the last year, he is also performing the piano works of Philip Glass in numerous locales, both in the U.S. and abroad.
I was lucky enough to steal him away from a performance at the 2019 Savannah Music Festival to take some photos of Aaron around downtown Savannah’s Jones Street and at my studio.

This past weekend flew by and I had such a blast as one of the volunteer photographers for the 9th annual Savannah Stopover Music Festival. It’s mind boggling how the team at this little festival manages to brings all this talent to Savannah and transform our cool little city into a hip mecca for up-and-coming acts en route to Austin's prestigious SXSW Music Conference.
Ashton Taylor of Ashton Taylor Interiors was in need of promotional portraits for her website and other marketing materials and I was happy to be the one she called for help. To give her a good selection of options we shot portraits and headshots in the studio and also on-site in a downtown Savannah home Ashton designed. Here is a selection of images from the shoot.

Renowned Jazz vocalist Annie Sellick joined the band, adding a vocal element to Velvet Caravan’s normally instrumental performances and Atlanta’s balkan band Mercury Orkestar opened the concert.
