I put up a few b&w photos from the She Wants Revenge shoot. I've got some color photos on deck that will get added to the gallery later...

Ok kids,

So you want some insight?

You want to be a wildly successful photographer, have your images seen in all of the coolest magazines by 100's of thousands of people?

Shoot all the killer bands?

Hang out and chat with your musical heroes between backdrop changes...

Make wedges of money?

Meet hot chicks *never happens lol*

Get flown 1st class all over the world and shoot in exotic locations...

Ya Da Ya Da Ya Da...

Well Uncle Scott is here to share a lil story with you. It's not all fun and games, on occasion you have to deal with assholes of gargantuan proportions, for example Jason Koransky *editor* of Downbeat

see e-mail below and start at the bottom and read your way up it's more effective that way, enjoy: Oh, and please feel free to send hate mail here --->

LOL Pardon me? Did you even look at the pictures I sent you, or are you still harping on the Chick shot? Man you need to let it go.

And as far as hiring me again - get over yourself - you never hired me to begin with. The bottom line is this...I needed a photo pass and you got me one, 2 years in a row. Thanks for some great memories...Sucka!

So are we on for next year?

Just in case were not, go F**k yourself!

This is a little weird my Dad's B-Day was yesterday on 6.06.06 and he turned 66...Got em' a Frank Sinatra cd and my daugther made him this really groovy B-Day card (the kid is a prodigy)

I'm going to try and publish a few She Wants Revenge shots when I get home tonight...
