Look ma! I’m a rock photographer!

If I could go back to my high school days and do one of those job shadow days again, instead of choosing a doctor or lawyer I’d pick to shadow a rock photographer. BUT WAIT. I recently got a glimpse of that good life, courtesy of Peter Ellenby, Noise Pop photographer extraordinaire, as you may recall.

Peter just sent me the results, and here are a few of the shots that I took with my own unsure hands. I think it’s the coolest thing ever and love the way they turned out.

  • It sounds like you got to work with real film. Digital, for all their convenience (and you need them when you have kids), Digital is just not as much fun. Back in the day, I managed a rockabilly band and was a photographer.

    Seeing your shots I realize I never made it from behind the sound board to take their pictures live… silly.

    I bet you had fun.

  • Yon: a *ridiculous* amount of fun. I was beaming in the afterglow for days.

  • First shot is a classic rock shot. Brilliant!

  • Love the shots! They definitely make me want to return to my art school days. For me, black and white will always add a timelessness to an image that color cannot match.

  • These are digital…set on the B&W setting with a portrait lens so it almost looks like film.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
