Bobby Talamine Rock n' Roll Photographer
Maynard James Keenan - Tool

Bobby Talamine is one of the premiere Rock n' Roll photographers in the country. He has photographed virtually every notable musical act since 1977, including bands and artists as diverse as Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, The Police, Rolling Stones, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Bruce Springsteen, U2, Prince, Tool, The Who, and on and on. Bobby's images appear regularly in national magazines, newspapers, and books.

Yes, he does shoot state-of-the-art digital, with top-of-the-line Nikon equipment. But really…what's the rush? Can he get top quality images out yesterday to meet your demands? Absolutely. Thousands and thousands of them. But if you have a day's patience, you'd get prints, both from digital and film, especially black and white. It's the warmth and feel of film in black and white that is utterly captivating to Bobby's eye – much different than digital. So every assignment he shoots consists of half a dozen rolls of this medium, generating arty, creative, eye-popping and unusual shots.

It goes beyond performance photography. Bobby also shoots portraits of artists, as well as backstage meet-and-greets, all with the utmost quality and care.

Keep in mind, it's his relaxed presence, along with years and years of experience, that allows for such one-of-a-kind images to come forth. This is precisely why he's always on the short list of go-to photographers in the music industry.

Bobby has also worked extensively with Cirque Du Soleil over the years, since he has such fondness for their touring troupe.

So get to know him. Contact him. Question his deep knowledge of musical acts and backgrounds, his massive stock photo catalog of won't be disappointed.

To date? 3,000 artists and counting…
