SCENESNAPS STARTED LIFE AS DRUNKROCKERS.COM, I STARTED IT AFTER I RETURNED FROM MY SERVICE IN THE US NAVY. I WANTED TO START A SITE DEVOTED TO THE PEOPLE THAT MAKE THE EVENT AN "EVENT", THE PEOPLE THAT PLAN ALL WEEK, MONTH AND YEAR FOR IT, NO MATTER WHAT THEY LOOKED LIKE. UP TO THIS POINT ALL I EVER SAW WAS THE SAME 5 PEOPLE ON AN EVENTS PHOTO PAGE, AND IT WAS THE THE GUEST-LISTERS, HANGER-ONS AND BOY/GIRLFRIENDS, IT WASN'T THE PEOPLE THAT WERE SUPPORTING THE EVENT. 

AFTER 7 YEARS I CHANGED IT TO SCENESNAPS.COM, BECAUSE AS FUNNY AND COOL AS DRUNKROCKERS IS AS A NAME, IT WAS CLOSING DOORS TO ME. I WOULD SPEND 20+ MINS WITH SOMEBODY EXPLAINING THE NAME, SO I NEEDED SOMETHING BETTER. YEARS LATER I BOUGHT THE NAME LADARKROOM.COM, A FORMER "COMPETITOR", STARTED BY TWO PHOTOGRAPHERS THAT DIDN'T LIKE MY RULES OF CONDUCT, AND FOUND OUT THE HARD WAY THAT BEING OUT IN THE CLUBS SHOOING PHOTOS IS JUST ONE LITTLE PART TO RUNNING THIS TYPE OF SITE. SINCE L.A. DARKROOM WAS TAKEN (AND I WAS NOT KEEN TO LIMIT MY GEOGRAPHY) AND SAM P. WE WERE DRINKING AT PERVERSION SPIT BALLING NAMES AND HE CAME UP WITH "SCENESNAPS". SO THERE YOU GO.
