I’ve been skipping the swamp walks for the last few weeks and for the most part stayed local for my hobby shoots. Might have something to do with those new boots I haven’t quite found yet or the different freelance sports gigs I was busy with for a few weeks.

The ice is finally gone from New Jersey’s Great Swamp and the emergence of amphibians and reptiles are making things a bit more interesting.

I was lucky enough to get a chance to be in studio for my buddy Blackest Jeff’s band Burden‘s new studio album, Withovt. Recorded at Backroom Studios in Rockaway, New Jersey, these guys traveled up from Philly to lay down some tracks. This installment is sure to be their most brutal chapter, and it gave me […]Read more "Burden, Withovt: Doom metal in studio"
