This is master craftsman Rick Maguire. For nearly three decades, Rick has been hand-crafting stringed instruments. Since the creation of each stringed instrument is a labor-intensive endeavor, Rick offers only the finest tonewoods for production and customization.
Also he is a wonderful man.

John Fuzek is a musician and of of the most dedicated supporters of the Rhode Island music scene that I have ever met. We had a lot of fun making this portrait!
I have been fortunate enough to create some relationships with in my opinion the best band in the world. These musicians are absolute beasts. Thank you Scheila, Ryan, Chris and Cian for your time and for another ass kicking show in Providence this week. You can catch the rest of the tour here is a link to the remaining shows
The Leftover Cuties are a breath of fresh air in the music scene. If you don’t know their music, it’s both old style and modern, very danceable but they aren’t a dance band, the music has depth and gravitas but is sometimes quirky and playful. I had the honor and pleasure of creating these portraits during their stay over in Rhode Island. The timing was good as it was Austin’s (the bass player) birthday! Yay!
You may be familiar with The Showtime television show called “The Big C” that the Cuties wrote and performed the theme song for.
Here are two other songs that moved me (both in different ways)
Dig the photos! I am very proud of them!
