This is the part where Jim describes how he cultivated a passion for live music that grew to obsession by the time he attended his first concert at 12 (the Allman Brothers). How he shoots with a fan’s emotion, and creates a visual soundtrack for every client. And that his work is found in print, film, books, on line and on walls across many time zones. Or that he’s based in Los Angeles (with a foot in New Orleans whenever possible) and his deep love for jazz, roots and blues includes jury selected coverage for the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival Foundation’s Archive from 2008-2019, and, as a photographer for And that Herman Leonard is his hero. Yup, those details don’t really matter, not if you hear something with your eyes and want to see more, dig deeper. But, like any great photo, there’s a lot more to that story.
