In actuality, these are not all gothic or scary, but a representative sampling of my photography and graphics ability. Please inquire directly if you are interested in licensing any of the work. We also do book covers and horror illustrations for publishers as I have a considerable stock library consisting of thousands of photos from around the world and my skill with Adobe Photoshop gives me the creativity to offer a wide variety of themes and images. These are shown in semi-thumbnail size - but larger formats are available.

It is very difficult to capture a ghost on camera - I focus rather on capturing the mood of a haunting or finding the striking angle of a gravestone in a cemetery.

Any use must be granted by written permission and must credit the original photographer and artist.

"To sleep: perchance to dream: aye, there's the rub;
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause...who would fardels bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
But that the dread of something after death,
The undiscover'd country from whose bourn
No traveler returns..."


- William Shakespeare

There's a man who sees all there is to see
What the future holds for all
"As the days grow dark", was his sole and final warning
"Beware of the one with invisible friends
They will steal into your mind
And all too soon the signs begin to show..."

Rise up to the shining
Live long, live now
Rise up to the shining
Don't be blinded by fools again
Fools again

As the page is turned and the story's told
From the visions he has seen
The house on the hill
With the haunted eyes that call
No one laughed as madness came out
To play it's game
If you stay too long you'll finally go insane


Bells will take their toll
On your way
There's no way we're born to shine
Before our time, all your life
You're on your own
Lonely road
Lost in a time
Let the light lead your way
To the golden throne
It's the only way


Oh rise up, to the shining
Wise up they're gonna steal your mind
Rise up, the house is gonna haunt you
No one laughed, no one cried
You stayed too long
You're finally gonna stay...

"The Shining"

-Black Sabbath
