Wow....

Hadn't met him yet but was looking forward to seeing him at a show this summer. I was always amazed even when I first joined the paug by his positive attitude given what he's had to endure...a true inspiration. And of course, no one took better photos of Phish.
Trey actually is totally inspired with ideas up the ass

When you're on droogz you don't remember which eye's supposed to be lazy

RIP WW.
You'll surely be missed but your spirit will live on forever..
It's a great day on the interweb, people.

You guys know the rule... If you weren't there, it wasn't anything special...

RIP WW
 :cry:

Not sure what to say except this is very sad news.  I've always enjoyed interacting with him on the paug, but never got to meet him in person.  He seemed like a real stand up dude and a talented photographer that had to go through so much...

Fare thee well, Shawn.

You took some incredible pictures and ware always so willing to share. 
The events in our lives happen in a sequence in time, but in their significance to ourselves they find their own order; the continuous thread of revelation.

Another great one...

I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

Haven't been posting very often, but I wanted to pay my respects to one of the few Paugers I've met irl.

RIP, Shawn.  Have a jam with Jerry for us.

He really did take some amazing pictures.  I had a B&W Trey shot from Hampton on my desktop for ages

I only got to meet Shawn once, at the pre-show meet-up in Chicago this past summer, but he was a great guy and an amazing photographer. The shots he got were always phenomenal.

I'll miss him.  :cry:
