    If you saw a man drowning and you could either save him or photograph the event...what kind of film would you use?

    Jim Marshall was one of the pioneer rock photographers.
    "I only wanted Uncle Vern standing by his new car (a Hudson) on a clear day. I got him and the car. I also got a bit of Aunt Mary's laundry, and Beau Jack, the dog, peeing on a fence, and a row of potted tuberous begonias on the porch and 78 trees and a million pebbles in the driveway and more. It's a generous medium, photography." -- Lee Friedlander

    Just kidding.

    Try Larry Fink's book, Somewhere There's Music. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NlzpM0nPy4

    Thankyou once again for the leads kind sirs. Will have a look at the names mentioned. I'm looking at Andrew Kendalls stuff which is cracking. It's all d*****l but nevermind. Here's a recent print I totally overlooked cause I never thought it'd print til scanning it, the merit in bothering to print contact sheets eh.

    Herman Leonard was a master of 50s/60s jazz photography. The Eye of Jazz is a good book if you can find a copy.

    p.s. Valerie Wilmer also wrote about and photographed jazz and blues in the 60s/70s. I have one of her books The Face of Black Music

    A few Australians who have done some good work over the years:
    Tony Mott
    http://www.tonymott.com/
    Sophie Howarth who recently published a book about an annual music event which happened to be on again today, Australia Day, in Sydney:
    http://www.peaceloveandbrownrice.com/
    Also Colin Beard and Graeme Webber did some pioneering work in the 60/70s for Australia's fledgling RockMag publications. Graeme's book Australian Rock Folio is like a picture diary of my teenage years following bands around. Some great early AC/DC shots in there. I don't think these two guys have much of a presence on the web.

    Modesty almost prevents me but you might also like to look at my APUG portfolio!

    Live performance photography is one of my favourite things to do. I'd be happy to share my thoughts/techniques if you want to PM me any time.
