OC Gazette Photographer On The Rise

I love how Guy Richie films always involve a colorful cast of characters with the greatest nicknames you wish your schoolyard friends had been clever enough to give you. Today I am bestowing upon our good friend (and great photographer) Gary B. of the honorary Guy Richie-an nickname of Gary "The Giant". Why is this honor bestowed? Well, Gary is not only a contributing photographer to The OC Gazette now (and a 6' 5" tall one at that), but also the proud contributor of some fine photographs to The Grammy Museum Sound Stage in LA for use in the exhibit "Instruments of Art." Yeah, as in The Grammys, Grammy Museum. As in U2 have 22 of them. Gary took photos for the article Jill (his partner in crime to form the duo that is wrote on the Grammy Sound Stage for our July 2010 Issue. The Museum was so impressed with the images that they asked Gary to use them in their brochures and upcoming exhibit. Don't you think that's grounds for an endearing pet name? Check it out and give Gary "The Giant" a high five if you see him.

  1. Gary Bandfield ROCKS!!! GB is all that and a bag of chips in my book. Keep it rockin' man. You're on the right track my friend!

  2. Gary is a rare talent with a gift. His work is incredible and those of us who know him are lucky to call him our friend. Accolades for his art are overdue. Congratulations, Gary.

  3. Way to go GB!!! You are quite a talent and we are so lucky to know you and call you our friend!!! You are truly head and shoulders above the rest. xxxooo

  4. I was lucky enough to meet Jill and Gary when they just happened to pull up and park next to me at The Forum before a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert. They told me about their website, TourBusLive.Com and I visited it the very next day. We have been friends ever since and have been to many shows together. Two of the nicest, most interesting, smartest and fun people I know.
