I come from a family who is passionate about all things music. I learned to sing at an early age, and by 13, had my very own Fender Strat guitar. I tried my hardest at learning all that I could. Because I was born with cerebral palsy, I had to teach myself an adaptive playing style. I learned to write and record my own music, despite these difficulties. In college, I started making great use of my writing abilities by reviewing music, as well as copy editing. I guess it's best to stick with what you know, while welcoming a fair challenge at the same time.
Metal!!! I am never without a camera, I am never without music, I can not live without coffee... I cook, I manage a band (shameless plug Modern Day Outlaw), I shoot people with my camera, and I drink tequila and whiskey... That's me in a nutshell!

Fun Loving Music Photographer and lover of live music in general. I am most likely to be spotted with a coffee in one hand and a camera in the other, somewhere in Philadelphia, New York City and everywhere in between. For more of my music photos: http://myphotos.bellemorephotography.com/
