“Kevin…you have come so far!”
San Bernardino, CA
May 29, 1983
Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre
Laguna Hills, CA
August 3, 1989
I am blessed. Ever since I was a kid all I wanted to do was take photos of my favorite rock bands and artists. I am living proof that if you want something bad enough; if you have the talent; and if you never give up – no matter how tough things may get – you can achieve your dream. I am often told, “Kevin, you have come so far.”
Take a look at that Ozzy photo from the Us Festival in 1983. I was just a kid shooting from the crowd back then with a smuggled-in-camera. Sometimes I could make my way right up front and sometimes I was stuck in the boonies. Now look at the Ozzy photo I shot at Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre, I was living my dream shooting Ozzy for my first time up front inside his photo pit.
So yes, I have come pretty far…about 150 ft. closer to the stage to be exact.
Ozzy at the Us Festival shot on my brothers Pentax K-1000 camera with a Pentax 80mm lens. Shot on Kodak Negative Film.
Ozzy at Irvine Meadows Amp. shot with my Canon AE1 Program and a no name 80-200mm f 5.6 lens. Shot on Kodak Ektachrome film.
