I’d like to share some good news

Chaifetz Arena

This is my new house.

I'm very pleased to announce that I've recently accepted a position as the house photographer for the newly opened Chaifetz Arena in St. Louis.

The new arena is a 10,600-capacity multi-use venue that will serve as the home to the St. Louis University Billikens basketball team, in addition to hosting a number of concerts in the 2008 season.

Considering my start in concert photography bringing a camera to a small club on a whim, I'm thrilled at the opportunity to act as the house photographer for the Chaifetz Arena.

Icon Barry Manilow performed the inaugural concert on April 25, 2008. Images from that event will be posted soon, and I will definitely keep you posted on events from this new venue in addition to my usual gigs.

My Camera DSLR and Lenses for Concert Photography

Nikon D850:
I use two Nikon D850 for my live music photography. A true do-it-all DSLR with amazing AF, fast response, and no shortage of resolution.
nikon-24-70mm-f28-lens-squareNikon 24-70mm f/2.8:
For most gigs, the 24-70mm is my go-to lens. Exceptional image quality at wide apertures and super-functional range.
Nikon-70-200-squareNikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR:
A perfect pair to the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, I can basically shoot any job with the midrange and this lens. Superb image quality.
nikon-14-24mm-f28-lens-squareNikon 14-24mm f/2.8:
Ultra-wide perspective, ridiculously sharp even wide open at f/2.8. I love using this lens up-close and personal, where it excels.
