Hells yeah!!! I’m gonna use this as a testimonial if that cool with you.
“Boss Hoss” by the Sonics, arguably the greatest of the original American garage bands. Regardless, they STOMP.
Tate has the greatest taste in music. Seriously.
Oh, yeah, and he photographs gorgeous women all the time. With & without clothes. Frequently in the process of not having clothes
As a photographer he has a great eye for color, whether it’s in the set-up or the processing (traditional or digital), his images are always striking because your eye is drawn in by the use of color.
If you dig through his tumblr, you’ll also see that he’s a pretty good at drawing as well.
Listen to the Sonics. Hear that energy they have? That rawness as applied to almost pop-song structures. That’s exactly what Tate’s photography is like to me, even when it’s almost 4 color comic book bright and candy-like, there’s a raw energy to the whole damn thing.
I’m going to listen to this song 14 more times.
