Urbex, Urban Exploring, Gastonia, Abandoned Photography

Urbex

If you know me or have been around, back in 2010 I started lightly trespassing into abandoned buildings. I did a ton of gallery shows of this work and some interviews. Due to Covid, kids, commercial photography, etc… I really have not done this in a while. It felt really good to get out and shoot just for fun. Not sure of the full history of this place outside of Gastonia, NC? I heard it …

1996 Fender Jagstang Paint Job + Humbucker Install

I have had this 1996 Kurt Cobain signature model Jagstang since I was in High School. I have bought and sold a lot of guitars along the way but this one was never up for sale. They were only issued in Fender Sonic Blue and Fiesta Red and produced 1994, 1995–2001, 2003–2005. Most folks prefer Sonic Blue (as did I) but they became increasingly rare and expensive. I called upon by buddy Rob Broyhill to …

Mindshift – Backlight 26L Camera Bag

My whole life my father and most of my colleagues have all used Lowepro camera bags. I decided to branch out for a new bag after a lens fell out of the side of my Lowepro. The fact that this Mindshift bag loads from the backside, (which presses against your back) was very appealing. It seemed like much less error for things falling out, which proved to be true over the past year. It also …

The Orange Micro Terror

So basically my entire life I’ve only played metal and hard rock. I’ve had my trusty Marshall JCM900 and 4×12 cab since 2002. I’ve used that for basically every live show and recording session ever since. Due to this wonderful pandemic, rock ‘n’ roll shows have not been happening and cranking up the Marshall every day to jam at my house is a little bit overkill, so I was looking for something smaller. I always …
