freaking love this. (Also, saw you played music and referenced Lamb of God eh? Did you tour a lot? I wonder if we might have met! I was on the road for a while playing music in the, "metal core" genre as well! I played with a band called Shai Hulud for a while)

Thanks Stevie! Very awesome, yeah man, I was in the touring circuit for about 4 years solid(2005-2009). My band was more on the alternative side of things, but still played with heavier acts from time to time mostly in the midwest and northwest. It's cool to hear from people like you that have a similar background, there are actually quite a few of us out there! :)

Wow, how come there are so many excellent musicians who are also incredibly talented photographers. Maybe, just maybe, it's a similar mindset - a sort of balancing act between artistic passion and elbow grease. Your hard work obviously payed off. The results are mind-blowing. Congrats, Clay!

Thanks John! I think it boils down to just being creative. That's all I want to do for the rest of my life, is create. Cheers my friend!

Love this Clay. Really can't tell that the lighting was composite based.

Thanks Sean! It's not easy to do, but once it's locked in, there is nothing quite like it!
