This is part of my Anonymous Faces project inspired by victims of domestic violence and those that struggle with addiction and homelessness.  I hope to use it to help those that help the needy.

Someone spilled soda at a birthday party today and I thought it was picture worthy.


this was taken later in the same night at the Sheldon as the Opening Night picture.  this one is one of my favorites.  I felt bad I didn’t know who Howard Hewett was before I got there.  It wasn’t until the next morning when I Googled him that I discovered he was the King of Funk, was in the band Charlemagne and performed on Soul Train.  The event was promoted by Renaissance Master here in St. Louis who represent a broad range of talent for a variety of events.  More pictures of Howard Hewett can be seen in their Gallery at

I just liked this shot.


I love this one.  When I first started wanting to be a photographer I posted that I would exchange services just for the experience.  So I got a call from a gentleman that said he was the promoter of a Jazz concert that was taking place at The Sheldon here in St. Louis and he needed a photographer to document the event.  I was so thankful for that opportunity.  This is one of the first shots I took right after the doors opened and the people started coming in.  I really still don’t even know how to use my camera yet…I mostly just trial and error it…but I was playing around with all the knobs and buttons and managed to capture this and I thought it was so cool.  I haven’t retouched it or done anything to it, I just left it the way it is.
