Motley Crue star Nikki Sixx is set to stage his first photography exhibition.

The rocker has embarked on a sideline career as a lensman in recent years, regularly sharing his arty snaps with fans online, and now he is preparing to show them off at a gallery in Los Angeles.

In a post on his Twitter.com page, he writes, "I will be doing my first gallery showing of my photography at the Leica gallery/store in Los Angeles this year."
