2015 – This is my second consecutive year of compiling portraits & images of friends I share the photo pit with all summer long, at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre, in St. Louis, MO. I’ve come to know and respect this group, that I refer to as the “Pit Gladiators“. This team is among the best in the business, always on alert to protect fans in attendance, the artists on stage, and always providing a level of confidence that I’ll be able to get the shot by working in concert with the photographers they share the space with. Another great season is in the books, the ‘Gladiators’ always make the year special, now the count down begins to 2016! If there are any Hollywood producers reading this.. look no further for a cast of characters to star in your next reality TV series. These guys are more entertaining than many of the acts I photographed on stage.

All these fella’s rock. They are dedicated, professional, hard working real dudes.. families & careers by day, Gladiators by night. Once you get beyond the Popeye size arms, and biker beards, you will discover kind, caring, humorous, and intelligent humans.
