My goal is to photograph for Vogue and Rolling Stone.
My passion is music.
Photography is my art of choice
Street photography like Saul Leiter, Ray Metzker, Paul Strand and so on is the Art photography I prefer.
I have looked at fashion magazines most of my life for the photos not the style of dress.
I live by the thought that I can die tomorrow and everyday is a blessing. I wake up and say thank you. I put a smile on and embrace the day. That feeling might last 10 minutes or 10 days but by being positive even surrounded by negativity life is pretty damn good.

Why would you suggest people attend more than one after dark experience?
“Because as photographers we should always be learning and expanding out knowledge. Afterdark is a unique experience that allows us to learn on our own schedule and take in as much as possible or to focus on one area for a majority. By going to multiple AD’s you can not worry about potentially missing something.”

From Chuckie:
“We are one weekend closer to death. Period. Be fearless, behold wonder, don’t take it personally. I love to share all that I know and I love to teach as much as I can. There are no secrets. I love to learn more than anything else. -Chuck Arlund “
