    I was just out there last month for the first time. Such a contrast to any other city I’ve been, it was surreal. I have some images up here: and here: Sean’s images definitely give a more intimate look though.

    My favorite city to shoot photos in. We just relocated from that area actually.

    The link is for Michigan Central Station – greatest urban ruin in the country, coolest building in Detroit.

    Liking this new series! Here’s a post I published today that shows photographers how to catalog photo shoot locations effortlessly. Might be of some interest!

    I shot some album artwork at the Eastown Theatre in Detroit a few months ago. Absolutely amazing venue.

    Here are a few shots:

    that’s a great collection of pictures. Slowly & slowly I have learned the importance of location scouting and keep taking pictures when I visit places, cause you never know when you need to be there again.

    I live in the area and love Detroit. Yes, we all hear the bad but there is a lot of good happening and a lot of good people.

    In sticking with the thread. This was one of the best to shoot…
    The old, Detroit Cass Technical High School.

    Those are some nice cars to be snapped. I feel Italy would make for a better place, specially Marenello ;-)

    I would like to invite peeps to check out other photo work, that involves the people of Detroit. I have lived many places but downtown Detroit for the past 7 years has blown my mind. Trucks pushed out of buildings, weddings in the streets, fake grocery stores to encourage capitalism, etc,
