I’ve always been a fan of rock photographers. Some favorites are Jim Marshall, Bob Gruen, and Eddie Kramer. These photographers had all-access to legendary bands such as The Stones, Sex Pistols, Doors, Jimi Hendrix, and Led Zeppelin. I currently admire the work of Danny Clinch; he has done some excellent work with Radiohead, My Morning Jacket, Beastie Boys, and Tupac, to name a few.

When I started Rollo & Grady, I shot all of the live shows for the blog. Having no previous experience, I realized how difficult it was to capture a great live shot. I didn’t follow the rules, basically blinding musicians with my flash. After a year or so, I decided to let professionals handle the photography for the site.

Last year at SXSW, a mutual friend introduced me to Patrice Jackson during Warpaint’s show at the Red Eyed Fly. She was full of energy and wearing a Daniel Boone hat. We discussed music and it turned out we loved the same bands, especially JEFF The Brotherhood. Not having seen any of her previous work, I asked her on the spot to shoot the festival for me priligy tablets. When she sent me the photos a week later, I was floored with the shots that she had captured. She went on to shoot JEFF The Brotherhood for me last April.

Photography first entered Patrice’s life at the age of 4, when her Uncle gave her a Polaroid camera. She took the camera everywhere shooting anything and everything that caught her eye. In her late teens she focused on shooting street photography, mainly documenting homeless people and random strangers she met at a coffee shop.

When she was 20 she started shooting live music shows and taking portraits of the bands she was following at the time. A huge fan of Delta Spirit, Patrice used their gift of all-access to explore the idea of trying to do band photography, experimenting with different cameras and learning which shots did and didn’t work.

She feels fortunate to travel and see her favorite bands – bands that she admires whose lyrics have helped her through good and the bad times in her life. She wants to support these bands as a fan and a photographer because she really believes they have the potential to make it.

In the past couple years Jackson’s images have been used for several bands’ albums or 7” records, including JEFF The Brotherhood’s Mellow Out 7” and Turbo Fruits’ Where The Stars Don’t Shine 7.” She collaborated with Matt Maust of Cold War Kids to design the album cover for their friends’ Old Lights’ first album: Every Night Begins The Same.
