Four decades of rock: A conversation with Ross Halfin

Super Stage

Monday 16th March | 13:15 - 14:30

Ross Halfin has worked with every major musician and band of the last four decades and has created some of the most memorable music photographs of all time.

His non-stop workload sees him constantly travelling the world with bands such as Metallica, Aerosmith, The Hollywood Vampires and Kiss. Known for his superb live photography, Ross’s portrait photography appears on album covers, tour programmes, magazine and book covers and countless editorial features from the very first issue of Kerrang! to the latest issue of Classic Rock. His archive is literally an A-Z of rock & Roll, with everyone from AC/DC, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Guns & Roses, The Who, Jeff Beck, Led Zeppelin and ZZ Top.

In this conversation with music photography archivist Dave Brolan, Ross discusses his enormous catalogue of work, his use of both film and digital, how music photography has changed and his unique access and relationships with his subjects. No doubt a few rock and roll war stories, as well as touching on his on-going passion for travel photography.
