Welcome To Chicago Punk Pix

I am a photographer in the Chicago area who is passionate about my craft. I am formally trained, with a Bachelor's Degree in Photography. I have photographed weddings; engagements; special events-- parties, reunions, first communions, confirmations, bar and bat mitzvahs; products; nightclubs; and bands-- live and promo. I am skilled at photo retouching and restoration. Additionally, I am creative, original, reliable and well organized.

My band photography has been included in publications such as
Going Underground- American Punk 1979-1992, American Hardcore- A Tribal History, Maximum Rock N Roll zine and Confessions Of A Chicago Punk Bystander. I was a participant in the Chicago Punk Music Scene of 1979 - 1986 and I published a zine called BS Detector. I once again became active in the Chi scene in 2006 and continue to attend and enjoy music shows to this day.

This site has served various purposes over the years, basically it's an expression of the things that I find interesting. It started in 2006 with the purpose of displaying my photos and memorabilia of the 1980s punk music scene for old friends. I continued adding new photographs and other items to the site and it become exceptionally popular, receiving as much as 30,000 uniques visitors a month. By 2009, my time to dedicate to the site was limited, so I scaled it back to simply serve as my photographic portfolio.

My interest currently is photographing and participating in social and economic justice rallies. My aim with the site now is to help facilitate these rising movements. In addition to photographing and displaying these events, I want to invite other like-minded people to post their own activist activities and events in the forum section.

I hope you enjoy your visit to the site!
