In high school I took a class in 35mm still photography with my teacher, Bill Arthurs. Around the same time, I started going to a lot of rock concerts and the two hobbies collided. This was a time when you could bring cameras anywhere and I even had a tripod on the stage once (I know, I couldn’t believe it either.) I would go to the show and then develop the film that same night at home in a darkroom I had set up in our laundry room. It was fun to show friends 8×10 color pictures of the concert they just saw the night before. Unfortunately, I lost a lot of the negatives in Hurricane Katrina, so some of these are scans of prints.
