“THE DRUM THING” is a photographic and interview book project featuring some of the most unique drummers in the world today.

So far, I have photographed 100 drummers including names such as Tony Allen, Ginger Baker, Travis Barker, Cindy Blackman, Patrick Carney, Terri Lyne Carrington, Chris Dave, Jack DeJohnette, Bryan Devendorf, Sly Dunbar, Steve Gadd, James Gadson, Dave Grohl, Mark Guiliana, Steve Jordan, Jim Keltner, Airto Moreira, Larry Mullen Jr, Neil Peart, Questlove, Jim Sclavunos, Ringo Starr, Lars Ulrich, Joey Waronker and Jack White.

Each is photographed in their private rehearsal space - from studios, bedrooms and basements to garages and gardens. This access allowed me to observe their everyday environments, experience their styles of playing up close and capture as best as I could, the true essence of these artists’ personalities and lifestyles.
