Twelve. I’ve hauled my gear on twelve treks from winterly lands to “All Aboard” a floating paradise of excessive creativity and musical freedom. Finding inspiration is hardly a challenge on the MSC Divina where passengers are encouraged to become walking (and/or dancing) embodiments of fun. I’ve made my career photographing artists, but Jamcruise is a perfect forum to turn my lens to my fellow onlookers and highlight some of the great personalities having a ball at sea. For those unable to make it out, here’s a little taste of our costumed sail to paradise.

Opportunities to give back highlight the spirit of the season we’re in and Warren Haynes’ Christmas Jam is probably our community’s finest example. Since 1989, Warren has been inviting friends to his hometown of Asheville to jam together to raise money for Habitat for Humanity, and this being the 25th year, I was elated to be able to document the festivities. Extra excitement came my way when Gregg Allman took home my photograph of Allen Woody as a Christmas Present to himself.
Here is a look at a few highlights, the full gallery lives here.
