    Photo Pit Gladiators v5

    view from the pit

    2018 – Another season has come and gone at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Maryland Heights, Mo., which means it’s time for the 5th annual Photo Pit Gladiator portraits, #PitGladiators! This is always a fun project, an opportunity to shoot & edit  outside of my ‘norm’ – portrait, candid, & action shots of the guys and gals I’m fortunate enough to share the venue pit space with at every show I shoot at the amp. It’s a special place that I feel humbled to be included, and when I’m not focused on getting my performance shots during the ‘3 songs & out’ rule, these folks make the evening fun, with their humor, grit, friendship, & witnessing the dedication to their assignments to servicing the bands & fans in attendance. Next time you head out for a show, if you see any of these knuckleheads, please give them a high five and the respect they deserve, but please.. do not feed the Gladiators! Enjoy. (more…)

There were solid shows by Country artists, Lady Antebellum, Darius Rucker, Brantley Gilber, Wheeler Walker, Jr., & Russell Dickerson. A great tour consisting of Counting Crows & Live, and of course, I’ve been working on assembling the 2018 #PitGladiators portraits. Here are a few highlights.  (more…)

    2017 – Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre, St. Louis, MO.Photo Pit Gladiators – I look forward to putting this collection together every year. Posed portraits, along with the Gladiators in their natural habitat, doing what they do. When it comes to event security, these guys are second to none in the business. Many I have shared the pit with now for eleven years, and every year I appreciate their professionalism, their sense of humor, their teamwork, their willingness to allow me to grab shots of them during down time (& sometimes during performances), and most of all their trust & friendship. Thanks fella’s for another fun year, see ya back in the pit in 2018! Click on to see the set… (more…)
