For more than 40 years, Janet Macoska has photographed rock ‘n’ roll royalty when they rumble through town. She’s probably your favorite rocker’s favorite photographer.
David Bowie liked her picture of him so much he hung it in his home. Her portrait of Paul McCartney hangs in the National Portrait Gallery in London.
When she visited us earlier this month, she was kind enough to share some highlights from her career, including:
- her favorite bands to photograph
- some of the challenges facing modern concert photographers
- the best photos that she’s ever taken in her career.
She also offers advice to aspiring photographers.
For more of Macoska, check out her book, All Access Cleveland. All Access compiles 340 of her favorite photos from more than four decades in rock ‘n’ roll photography.
