"In the violence and terror of the Route 91 concert shooting, these Las Vegans saved lives, gave comfort and defined the spirit of selfless service"

8 portraits of mine taken for Desert Companion magazine. Without a doubt the most difficult task of my career so far.
What could I possibly say to these people who were going through so much and will be for some time. I left each portrait with a different feeling for everyone. Empathy, a feeling of courage, resilience and an overall pride for my city. They're all heroes and it was an experience I'll never forget meeting them, taking their portraits and hearing their stories.

Of course my pictures are half of the story, go to Desert Companions site at;

or pick up a copy locally in Las Vegas.

These are most excellent. Full of emotion and the lighting is great.

Very well done.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

We often see news photos that were taken while a tragedy is occurring, and Las Vegas is no exception to that. We don't often see follow-up photographs and stories of those who were involved.

Anthony -- the photos you took and the documentation provided by Desert Companions will be a part of history forever. The photos are fabulous; the stories are heart-wrenching and timeless.

Thank you very much.


Image editing ok; C&C always welcome.

Thank you and yes it was really tough.
So sad that a few days after sharing this another mass shooting was happening.
