Introducing a Limited Series of 50 skateboard decks by an awesome French company called Boom Art featuring photographs by yours truly. The skateboards were designed and built by a talented French artist, Dominique Baconnier. I mean really, it doesn’t get any cooler than classic rock photographs blazing the backsides of collector skateboard decks!
These guys did an amazing job and I’m thrilled that they are showcasing my work in a whole new way for a whole new generation of rockers.
These decks are both functional and collectible. They are not only already being used by devoted skaters around the globe but are unique objets d’arts, no? And each order is accompanied by a signed-by-me gratis copy of my Classic Rock Postcard Book.
As Boom Art says, “Enjoy the past…Respect the future.” I couldn’t agree more.

Photoville opened this past, steamy weekend in Brooklyn, NY. The festival features some 30 shipping containers showing mini-exhibitions curated by some great people and organizations, with photographs hung using various creative methods. The other rather wonderful element is the quality of talks and presentations being hosted. I will be one of the talkers this coming weekend, on June 30th, where I am thrilled to be hosted by Rock Paper Photo with my long-term colleague and dear friend, consultant and curator Julie Grahame, and shorter-term pal, the young and lovely music photographer Anna Webber. Join us at 1.30 pm for “Beyond the Picture: The Art of Selling Music Photography” What does it take for music and entertainment photographers to successfully market and sell their work?
Photoville and all the talks are FREE so come on over to Brooklyn Bridge Park. We’ll see you on Saturday!

Australian magazine Photo Review just published an interview they recorded during the Antipodean leg of the Rolling Stone Years Cosmic World Tour. Some of the highlights:
PR: You’ve said that often you’d come away from shooting a concert and remember almost nothing of what had happened. Why is that?
BW: You had to be totally involved in the photographic moment. There was no autofocus, no auto-exposure, no auto-winders. Everything was done manually and you had to think it out in advance before you did anything. On stage the lights were always changing, and that meant the correct exposure was always changing too. I had a spot meter that looked like a machine-gun almost. I’d point it at the musician hoping that the reading I got then would kind of stay that way for awhile, you know. That was before there ever was a meter in the camera itself.
PR: So your mind is filled with the technical challenges while you’re shooting, then you come out of it and discover what you’ve done?
BW: Well, I knew that I could turn it on and off. I had to actually stop thinking actively about what I was doing and just let it come to me. You know, I felt like I was a conduit for these images to come through – wherever they were coming from – through me to the camera. I felt like I didn’t play a major role in it – obviously I did – but I felt somehow disconnected… I didn’t feel like I was responsible for the pictures; although obviously I was.

“We interviewed him before the concert. He was so quiet!”
Jimi was one of Baron’s absolute favorites to photograph. He always dressed well, he was so photogenic, he was an incredible performer… Read more about shooting Jimi and how Baron sees the music in the new book “The Rolling Stone Years”. “You’d have to work really hard to take a bad picture of Jimi.”
Here I am, Baron’s East Coast correspondent, attending the launch party for Rock Paper Photo, a new place on the web to buy incredible music photographs, not least of all this silver gelatin limited edition of Jimi Hendrix. As you can see, we have a rather fetching T shirt available that features the cover of ‘The Rolling Stone Years’, with Baron’s World Tour dates on the back.
